Zbudujmy.to 4th aniversary exhibition.

4urodziny
If you happen to be in Warsaw Poland next weekend (19-20 of November) you have to visit Zbudujmy.to’s 4th aniversary exhibition at Służewski Dom Kultury.

Except usual MOC show, there will be play zone, different contests and even some lectures (those unfortunately in  Polish only). Either way there will be a lot of cool stuff to see and do, and a lot of Crazy Builders to meet.

LUGPol’s LEGOWISKO 2016 – video

Łódź is only about 2 hours away from Warsaw by train or car. It would be not wise to miss opportunity to visit AFOLs exhibition so close. Some friends, who are also members of LUGPol were driving there already to exhibit, so i got a lift (thank you BHs). It was not the biggest of their shows, but models presented were very nice, and atmosphere on the event was very welcoming and friendly.

So without too much rumbling, enjoy video from event:

There is also 3D version if you have 3d hardware,  be it 3d googles, 3dTV or just plain anaglyph glasses. You can choose your option in the player if you follow this link.

And if you happen to have Nintendo 3DS, here is a file you can put on your device and see it on your 3DS. Right click on the link, select save, then copy it to your media folder on your Nintendo SD card. After you put the card back in your Niny, you can find GBC video in your camera app under view photos.

I would also want to thank all the exhibitors for presenting such a great set of MOCs, and a friendly atmosphere.

GBC LEGOWISKO ŁÓDŹ 2016

There was small GBC circuit at the LUGPol’s event last week. It was built by Jahoo, Maras and Solic.  It looked like that:

I also have 3d version of it under this link. It requires some 3d hardware to watch, be it 3d googles, 3dTV or just plain anaglyph glasses. You can choose your option in the player.

And if you happen to have Nintendo 3DS, here is a file you can put on your device and see it on your 3DS.

Legowisko 2016 – LUGPol expo in ŁÓDŹ – photos

Last week i visited LUGPol’s exhibition in Łódzki Dom Kultury, in Łódź/Poland. The event was held in 2 medium halls where one of them was dedicated to MOC exhibition, and another one to kids play area, Brickwars and Mindstorms.

The event spanned entire weekend, but i only was there for the Saturday.  Due to the Hot Sunny Weather attendance was a little bit low, but i heard it got better on Sunday which was colder and rainy. But the atmosphere inside was very friendly all the time. I was not the only visitor from another LUG there, except me there was also Mario from Brazil, and we were both taken care about like we were family members.

Łódź is known as a polish capital of animation, so there had to be some character known from Polish cartoons:

LUGPol has very strong Technic section, and they were racing with their truck all day. It was even possible to take part in the races and win prizes if you were just usual visitor.

There were also shows of Truck Trials, and a small GBC – i will post video of that later this week.

One of the highligts was Modular City Project. Most of the buildings were made especially for that occasion and some were really amazing (2 of them were even featured here). But for me the best part was to meet other builders and talk to the old and new friends.

Yet another Palace of Culture and Science

This is time-lapse video of me and Krusia, my girlfriend’s plush duplo rabbit building Palace of Culture and Science. This is not the first time Krusia helps me build, but it has never been shown to public how do we build a model from start to finish.

Some might wonder why we are building another version of famous Warsaw’s landmark. This time we were involved in another project by LEGO Poland. There were 17 landmarks to be built by people involved, i have chosen something else, but as nobody wanted to build PoCaS and i was already familiar with the geometry, i ended up building this version.  I’m not sure how much info i can share now, so i will not say much more.

As you can see this MOC is much less detailed, but that was the idea of the project to build a little bit smaller and simpler.  Proportions are also skewed a bit like in my previous build, but i’m more perception builder than the robot architect. The general look and feel of the object build is much more important to me than accuracy.

This was also an experiment to try to mix time-lapse with stop motion animation. I’m pretty pleased with results, are you? Would you like to see more videos like that? If yes, subscribe, comment and share.

LEGOWISKO ŁÓDŹ 2016

What is the better way to invite fellow AFOLs to your event than by making MOC? I do not know better, as did Krzysztof Pusz  of LUGPol who built this inviting scene.

The event will take place in:
Łódzki Dom Kultury
ul. Traugutta 18
ŁÓDŹ
POLAND

The date is 2-3.07.2016, that is next weekend. You can find more info on LUGPol’s website if you are interested to go.

We will be there on Saturday as regular visitors, and will be capturing some video footage and photos, so subscribe or follow us on facebook not to miss the report.

Warsaw’s Palace of Culture and Science

Palace of Culture and Science in LEGO by Jetboy of Zbudujmy.to

Warsaw’s Palace of Culture and Science was originally build by Russian architect Lew Rudniew in 1952-1955. This  LEGO brick version  was built by me (Jetboy) during 2015-2016.

This build consist of almost 30000 bricks, is over 125 cm high, and it is the biggest thing i ever built. It’s base 4×5 baseplates, although i seen bigger things built out of LEGO bricks, is huge enough to call it crazy.

In late 2015 Polish LUGs were approached by LEGO Poland, to build some most iconic Polish landmarks AFOL style fir their Zone of Adult Fans of LEGO. We made projects in LDD, and 4 of them were selected to be built with real bricks. Palace of Culture and Science was one of them. It took me  about half year from starting project in LDD to handing the model to LEGO Poland, it was and adventure of it’s own. I will write in depth article about it soon. Subscribe, so you will not miss it!

Palace of Culture and Science in LEGO by Jetboy of Zbudujmy.to

 

I was building it keeping LEGO Architecture style in mind. That’s why there is that black, stripe around it. The thing is that Palace is so huge, i had to make it 2 studs wide, as one stud tiles would be hardly noticeable.
