  1. [quote name='Superkalle' timestamp='1472895085' post='2650360'] Fixed title for you as best as I could As for answer, Yes, it's fairly easy to do.[list=1] [*]put a 1x1 plate in the position closest to the 4x4 hole [*]Rotate it 45 degrees. [*]Put a 1x3 on top . It will now be in position as you want, just one plate too high up. [*]Remove the 1x1 plate under [*]Take a new 1x3 and put it in between the 1x1 and 4x4. It will orient itself after the 1x1 [*]Remove the top 1x3 [/list] [attachment=18056:Capture.PNG] [/quote] Thanks! I just saw your reply. That is an even simplier solution.
  2. I already got a great [url="http://www.swebrick.se/index.php?topic=10546.0"]solution[/url] by Andreas from the Swedish LUG.
  3. I want a 1x3 plate to sit on the underside of a 4x4 round plate, but turned 45 degrees. See photo below. When I try it in reality it works, but now when I'm about to make the instructions in LDD I can't get it to work. Is it possible to do? If not, are there any other tricks that can achieve this?

  4. Thanks a lot for your comments everyone! [quote name='Littleworlds' timestamp='1472415392' post='2646528'] Hey, this is really cool and something different! I like the cute comic-style a lot. Wonderful work! Now, if you excuse me. I have a project to support [/quote] Thanks for the support! [quote name='dr_spock' timestamp='1472432776' post='2646707'] Great idea. I think it'd work well sitting on my car's dash board. A YouTube video may play better. For some reason, flickr videos are very choppy on my Internet connection. Not sure anyone else has that problem. [/quote] Aha, [url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVylK1sv7rw"]here [/url]is the youtube video. [quote name='-zenn' timestamp='1472456166' post='2646856'] Haha, love it! His boots remind me of Gene Simmons's Kiss for some reason. Nice work on that Fender Stratocaster guitar btw. [/quote] Ah I knew I recognized the design of the boots from somewhere, Yep it is a Fender Stratocaster guitar!
  5. This is a [url="https://ideas.lego.com/projects/151827"]LEGO Ideas project[/url] I have made of Rockie - a guitarist that can keep the beat to the music. See more at the [url="https://ideas.lego.com/projects/151827"]project site[/url]. I would appreciate if you gave it a look and your support! Rockie's head and neck can move (the same kind of mechanism I used in my [url="https://ideas.lego.com/projects/150144"]Star Wars Bobbleheads[/url]) and if you have some music on and tap on his head it looks like he is keeping the beat to the music. See a video that demonstrates this [url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVylK1sv7rw"]here[/url]. [url="https://ideas.lego.com/projects/151827"][img]https://c1.staticflickr.com/9/8553/28557322763_49820fd291_z.jpg[/img][/url] Rockie is a teenager who dreams of becoming a great music star one day. "Practice makes perfect!" is his motto. So far his only fan is his mouse friend Mac who always sits and listens to his guitar play. He specifically enjoys playing rock music, but also other kinds of music like jazz and blues.

  6. [quote name='GalbynZ' timestamp='1470984117' post='2633176'] Very nice work! they are very funny and very detailed! [/quote] Thanks! :D
  7. [quote name='wasswass' timestamp='1470812118' post='2631425'] I think the eyes is only adding to the fun aspect, so I like them more. [/quote] Thanks! There are some who thinks they look creepy and some who thinks they look cute. [quote name='Azrielsc' timestamp='1470812387' post='2631428'] B-b-b-b-brilliant! Haha! :) [/quote] Haha thanks!
  8. Thanks for your comments guys! [quote name='HawkLord' timestamp='1470674282' post='2630253'] I think the overall look is very creative, but as an Ideas project it looks very similar to Funko Pop figures and may be moot anyway, as Lego is producing Brickheadz for Marvel and DC next year. There's a very good chance Brickheadz will extend to Star Wars, as well. Both instances hurt the chance of success with Ideas. [/quote] Thanks! I know there is similarity to Brickheadz, so maybe they won't be interested in making it if it would reach the goal, but it is still another idea with the wobbling head. O the other hand I hope that now with the new guidelines that if it wasn't in their interest at all they would not have accepted the project.

A bobblehead is a toy figure with an oversized head that is connected to the body with a spring. When you lightly tap on its head it wobbles (or bobbles) back and forth for a while. I was thinking about how a bobblehead could be made by LEGO bricks, and how the wobbling effect could be built. There is no real LEGO spring that can be used for this purpose, so I had to think of something else to use. After some trial and error I found a simple technic using an LEGO antenna piece which creates a wobbling effect that works really well. The video below shows how it works in reality.[/font][/color] [color=#76787A][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif][url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wGSomYh9HC0"]https://www.youtube....h?v=wGSomYh9HC0[/url][/font][/color] I created an [url="https://ideas.lego.com/projects/150144"]Ideas project[/url] of it as well, so please have a look and I would appreciate if you gave it your support. [color=#76787A][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]I decided to recreate six characters from the original Star Wars movie into LEGO bobbleheads - Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Boba Fett, Darth Vader and a Stormtrooper.[/font][/color] [url="https://ideas.lego.com/projects/150144"][color=#76787A][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif][img]https://dp1eoqdp1qht7.cloudfront.net/community/projects/a81/96b/150144/2596186-o_1apjqjf7o1742feja42g9a1pghc-full.jpg[/img][/font][/color] [color=#76787A][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif][img]https://dp1eoqdp1qht7.cloudfront.net/community/projects/a81/96b/150144/2596236-o_1apjqkknd2tc1oibkjfbira4g2p-full.jpg[/img][/font][/color] [color=#76787A][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif][img]https://dp1eoqdp1qht7.cloudfront.net/community/projects/a81/96b/150144/2596192-o_1apjqjf7o1coatse15mi1qs81a9oe-full.jpg[/img][/font][/color] [color=#76787A][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif][img]https://dp1eoqdp1qht7.cloudfront.net/community/projects/a81/96b/150144/2596210-o_1apjqjf7o13m81btk160b885i75k-full.jpg[/img][/font][/color][/url] [color=#76787A][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]The head can also be turned in all directions like in the image below.[/font][/color] [color=#76787A][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif][img]https://dp1eoqdp1qht7.cloudfront.net/community/projects/a81/96b/150144/2596219-o_1apjqjf7pg27128h1spj1ecu1c5mn-full.jpg[/img][/font][/color] [color=#76787A][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif] [/font][/color] [color=#76787A][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif] [/font][/color][color=#76787A][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Hope you enjoy it!

  10. Thanks a lot everyone! Also nice to read which details you like the best. :) [quote name='Sonjira' timestamp='1463766971' post='2565069'] Love the use of color here, great work! Considering doing any other MOCs with other Disney characters of this era/style? [/quote] Donald is my favorite, but I'm thinking of building something with Mickey also.
  11. Donald only gets bills in his mailbox, and his neighbor Jones is standing in the background smiling scornfully. I tried to make the visual style similiar to the style I have seen in the Donald Duck comics I read during the 80s. The car is up as an [url="https://ideas.lego.com/projects/140859"]LEGO Ideas-project[/url], so I would appreciate if you had a look at that as well and gave it your support.

  12. Thanks for your compliments!
  13. [quote name='Plurallvitch' timestamp='1463365247' post='2560511'] This is a pretty cool MOC. A fantastic piece that compliments the Donald minifig well. [/quote] Thanks! [quote name='MAB' timestamp='1463392450' post='2560740'] It's a nice little build, but I cannot see them making something so small and from an existing theme. If you want people to build it, why not just share the instructions? [/quote] Thanks! Well there is no real "Donald Duck theme" or "Duckberg theme" so this would be the start of it in that case. And I think since there is a minifig as Donald at least I would love to see a set of his car, eventhough it is small (but there are many much smaller LEGO sets for sale so why not? :) ) On the other the design is not as simple as it might look like. Hmm... how do you mean why I would not just share the instructions? It is not just about that I want others to build it, I want to see it as a real LEGO product as well (I guess that is the point of Ideas?). Whenever I have the time to make instructions I will share them though. [quote name='Khscarymovie4' timestamp='1463336117' post='2560034'] Nice little build . Supporter #504. [/quote] Great!
  14. [quote name='Captain Green Hair' timestamp='1463331169' post='2559957'] Great creation and wonderful idea! The little scenes just show what you can do with a bit of creativity, well done! [/quote] Thanks! Glad you like it! It was really fun to build.
  15. And here is another one. This Friday was the 13th and of course Donald got his car broken that day! [url="https://ideas.lego.com/projects/140859"][img]https://c2.staticflickr.com/8/7711/26724080630_79cf2e8c29_z.jpg[/img][/url]
