Merry Christmas to you all!
Let te Santa be generous with Lego brick presents for you!
It is being held between 26 and 28 of May in Old Bus Depot, at Włościańska 52 str. in Warsaw, POLAND. Except usual attractions we will have town diorama 25 square meters in size, plus selection of game and geek related models especially build for the event. You will also be able to play with interactive brick models and build your own creations. We will also have resolution of our Brickheads contest, well at least the gaming part of it. The rest of the contest will be held online so if you want to take part in it there is still chance, here are the rules. If Polish is not your language and you want to take part, then let me know in the comments and i will explain it.
Crazy Builders will be also present there, and Jetboy will be giving out presentation about similarities of the demo scene and the AFOL world. This time presentation will be in Polish, but we are already thinking about making a version in English.
Event bricks are ready already:
As the event is taking place in the Bus Depot, we have also something built for that occasion by one of Zbudujmy.to forum members Pablo :
This is more for Polish readers, but if you want to come from abroad, you will be also very welcomed. Next week Zbudujmy.to is organizing another exhibition in Bytom/Poland. Entrance is free. More info on the poster below.
We will be there, so expect extended coverage within 2 weeks.
LUGPol is just running a contest where you need to make alternative models of 911720 SW Ghost foilpack. I prepared a few ideas.Minifg’s Gym
I wanted to create something not obvious, so my first choice was a gym. Is that obvious? Not for me, as i cannot recall when i was last at the gym…
From left to right: drink water tank/resting place, squeezing bench, barbells stand, stepper bench.
Unused elements: 0Dragster
Almost any set with wheels can be turned into Dragster. This one does not have wheels per se, but as you see can be turned into a dragster anyway.
Unused elements: 2
If you can make a dragster out of the set, you can turn it into a spaceship, if you cannot make a dragster, then you can make it into a spaceship, or a fleet of.
Unused elements: 0 (well, one is unattached and is used only to level one of the ships)
Nexus and his dog
“Nexus and his dog” used to be a theme of one of the old contest. Thos time Nexus is quite robotic and the dog resembles more a turkey then the dog. Well, at least all parts are used 🙂
Unused elements: 0
look from behind:
Snail vs Turtle race has to be fierce! Either way we have something for animal lovers.
Unused elements: 14 (shame on me!)
That was only a warm-up. We only can put one build into the contest, so here is my entry. Wish me luck!Help me Obi Wan Kenobi, you are my only hope!
I’m happy i kept the SW theme here.
Unused elements: 12 (quite a few, but the result was worth it, and it was no requirement, but i always challenge myself to try to use all elements)
Wish me luck! And write what else would you like me to build out of this set?
Vampire State Building is a skyscraper i built for another LEGO Poland event. This is pretty simple, but the goal was to build skyscraper that would be easy to transport and children-proof . If it was not for that i would go more crazy with ornaments and fancy wall shapes.
If you look closely , you will find 2 lines where bricks are not fit together – that’s because i needed to get out of my apartment split into 3 pieces , after photo session.
Krusia, my faithful helper rabbit builder helped me putting all those bricks together. It took us about a week, and about 16K bricks. There will be time-wrapped video of us building it soon, but for now take a look at some more photos:
When i saw this beautiful build of Admiral Ackbar by Eero Okkonen i could not refrain from blogging it. It is absolutely accurate ! It shows masterful use of the bricks.
Tan’thu was built by Micah Beideman with some help of his friends. This build proves that tires are one of the best pieces to create organic shapes when you turn them inside-out. Also if you wonder what is mouth piece built with, it is bottom jaw from Ninjago dragon. Pretty clever piece use.
Is it possible that we have the MOC of they year in the very beginning of January? Either way, if this year starts with such masterpiece, i’m looking forward what the rest of the year will bring.
I got cake version of Janek Kafelek from my sister as a Christmas gift (mold included so i can make more myself). Isn’t he cute?
Thank you Ania!
Best wishes to all of you!
There is interesting contest going on in Poaland. Lugpol’s and Zbudujmy.to user, Johan is running his private contest. There will be many stages each being separate task. For starters we were asked to build figurine in minifig scale, without using minifig parts – well, legs, torsos and heads are forbidden.
Golem is my entry. If you wonder – it’s not the Golem that is preventing me from updating this blog in timely manners. I hope i will be back next month with some changes, and daily updates.
