Bricklink 10197 "Technic, Axle and Pin Connector Hub with 2 Axles" -- Lego Element ID 6005755 (for now available in Dark Bluish Gray only):
Bricklink 10288 "Technic, Axle and Pin Connector Triple" -- Lego Element ID 6005331 (for now available in Dark Brown only):
If you ordered these from "Lego Direct" (Lego Customer Service), using the Lego Element IDs above, what would you do with them?
I have some ideas:
1) The 10288 Connector could be used for a "bicycle wheel" or "Ferris Wheel"-type setup, where stacks of the 10288 Connectors could be rotated SLIGHTLY to allow numerous spokes to go outwards from a common center:
2) The 10288 Connector could be used to form GEODESIC DOMES, with Technic Axles connecting them together in pentagons and hexagons:
3) Four 10197 Connectors could be used with four 32034 Technic Connectors (center picture below), to form a 5x5 SQUARE version of the 64179 "Technic, Liftarm 5 x 7 Open Center Thick" part (right picture below):
What are your ideas?
