[MOC] Hoth on ice
Posted 26 July 2009 - 10:12 PM
I've been wanting to try somthing like this for quite a while, but only got around to it last night.
I made some small snow covered rocks and a frozen rebel, then stuck them onto some plastercene so they don't float. I put that into a plastic container filled with water then let it sit in the freezer overnight. To get the little beads of ice on the mountain part you have to take it out every now and then and spray a little water on it.
I was a bit worried it might damage the bricks, but I can't see any warping or cracking.

Chuck it into a plastic bag filled with water and left it in the freezer.
Felt guilty about it months later, how could I have treated my precious minifigs to such torture !

An old catalog that I have from the late 80's recommends keeping Lego pieces under 110 degrees Fahrenheit.
Freezing the Lego fig is a very creative idea and it looks like it turned out nicely too. I wouldn't imagine that freezing a figure would do much damage. I'd be more interested to see how the figure was after it thawed, i.e. is it more brittle etc.

Why do I now have a strange compulsion to try this with a Han Solo minifg?
Posted 28 July 2009 - 01:07 AM
Hahaha. That's funny. Actually if you get some really dark colour water (probably not coffee or coke since that I suspect that will really damage your minifig) and freeze that in a block with Han in it ... we might get the effect we want. That will beat the printed brick that we have to live with currently.
Using this technique I think we can create an awesome Wampa Cave scene.

This looks like a very good idea for Hoth scenes
I'll have to try it when I can bring myself to freeze Han

Be careful with ice though. It can cause lego to crack.
