Lego minecraft brick and tile.
As much as I like most of your ideas, I don't get the point in the minecraft brick. :sceptic:
It looks bigger than the "normal" 2x2 brick, the axle holder seems a bit out of place, too.
What is it good for?

I'm not sure, but if it does ever get produced, don't tell my brother! :laugh: He's a huge Minecraft fan and I bet he'd spend hundreds of dollars to make a huge Minecraft world MOC with those bricks. :tongue:

It is good for Minecraft fan. :tongue:
The brick is 2x2x1⅔ and 2x2x1⅓ to make a cube minecraft block in minifig scale.
(brick+2 plates and brick+plate+tile)
The position of axle holder is same as technic brick 1x2 with crosshole sandwich by two plates. But it should up-down-up-down to prevent the collision of 2M cross axles at 90°.

I will try to make more blocks with different Minecraft decors and some Minecraft characters minifig.

I found this idea on brickset.com. http://www.brickset....rticle/?ID=5321

The author Takanuinuva said "If someone who is good at making 3d images of lego parts. Perhaps you could make 3d images of my parts for easier viewing" .

That looks very good.
I don't understand why Lego doesn't make small movable legs? Any ideas?

Probably because the short legs are very limited in movement when attached to a basis. And because are cheaper, obviously! :tongue:

About the "minecraft guys", I like the first version, but with the arms of the third one.

Thanks, I found that the legs are still too long so a modify it a bit.

There could be another reason for the "unmovable" legs made by TLG (and I think it is the main reason):
These legs seems to be longer because designed to appear partially hidden under the torso.
Movable legs instead appears too short, and the minifig became disproportionate.

You are right,  Calabar. The 2nd version will let minifig's height close to minifig with TLG "unmovable" short legs.
And close to Takanuinuva's original design here http://lego.cuusoo.c...deas/view/29452
But legs appears too short. Maybe it is because of this minfig model is base on Ldraw's minifig and seem like the orange belt is too thick.
Another solution is to make Takanuinuva's short torso and short arms, too. But it will require five new moulds in total.

May be this has some structural limitations. If you look at a real minifig leg and how it is attached, there is high probability that stud would not fit into that short version. Or it would not be sturdy enough. I am also not sure about movement, such short legs would be quite stiff to move.

But it would be nice to have such cute little moveable legs.

I agree with you, how about this leg idea.

Not sure about this gear. If stack many of them zigzag way can make small gearbox with high gear ratio.

The 24 teeth outer/ 8 teeth inner double gear with hollow shaft can make a smaller gearbox with high gear ratio.
The gear ratio = 3 ^ (number of new gear + 1)
For example use 4 new gears as pic below (hollow shaft simulate). gear ratio => 3^5 => 243 : 1

Hi

I'd like a guide bracket/connector that enables the new 8 tooth gear to be used with double or single bevel gears

There would be one either side and one would be flipped horizontally to allow the bevel gear to fit in right:
if its being used with a double bevel gear you simply move each bracket outwards by 0.5L as it equals 1L which is how thick double bevel gears are
The 8 tooth gear has some of the axle sticking out to allow it to drop down for the smaller side bevel gear however it needs to have a spacer too but is flush with the tops of the brackets.

The brackets have end holes too so you can add more support beside the axle on the 8 tooth gear.
the total dimensions of the brackets excluding the bevel gear is 3x3L which is quite compact, each bracket is 1x1x3 so its like a 3L liftarm.

Posted Image
You can probably using the large side bevel gear too if you add some spacing between the brackets and your model but I wouldn't recommend putting high load onto it incase you break the 8 tooth gear, I'm doubtful that the old 14 tooth gear would work especially since its a stupid thickness.

The sides of the brackets have 1 or 2 pinholes (undecided) This idea would make it possible  to have a simple way to use the new 8 tooth gear in situations where you need a new gear ratio or where there is little space
