Hi, I've recently built a telescope : It measures 18 x 29 x 34cm, but the tube can be separated from the tripod and the legs can be folded to store the model more easily : And the best thing about it is that it works ! Well of course it "works" just like the Grand Piano 21323 is a "playable" piano. You can look in the eyepiece and see celestial bodies, but it's not what's actually in the sky. It works thanks to a light brick, that's activated by pressing the lens : Then the light goes through a decorated glass (sets like 75810, 10273 or 70917 have features that work in a similar way), two magnifying glasses, and bounces on a mirror : And here's what you see when you look into the eyepiece : Well at least that's the principle, I will have to finetune it if I want it to work in real life. Right now it's just a digital model, that you can see in 3D on Mecabricks : https://www.mecabricks.com/en/models/oK2w7Rk029k There are also more pictures in my Flickr gallery : https://www.flickr.com/photos/leewanlego/albums/72157718522288468 And, finally, if you like the idea and would like to see it become an official set in the near future, you can support it on LEGO IDEAS : https://ideas.lego.com/projects/2d338638-5679-42b6-b8d7-7c0166bab999
Toa_Of_Justice posted a topic in LEGO Sci-FiHypernova, my revamp of 7712 Supernova, is a special model I made to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Exo-Force (2006-2016). I first started designing Hypernova in LEGO Digital Designer in May 2015. I finished building the real model in December 2016. I used 661 elements, which came from my own collection, LEGO Pick A Brick Online, LEGO Bricks and Pieces, and BrickLink. Hypernova can bend and twist around 13 points of articulation, not counting the fingers. The staff features a solar amplifier represented by a 2x3 trans-red light brick (54869/54930c01), which can be turned on and left on thanks to the interaction between the 6M axle (3706) and the 1x2 brick with axle hole (32064). The shield features a "six shooter" (18587 + 18588) laser gun at its center, controlled by a knob behind the shield (story-wise, the control would be in the cockpit). There is a laser sniper drone with folding wings on each arm, a rocket launcher on each shoulder, and a pad with 3 laser guns over each shoulder. The cockpit opens to reveal the controls and the pilot, Capt. Dawn O'Fury. On either side of the cockpit is a pair of full-spectrum sensors, enabling Dawn to see even when she's annihilating enemies with a solar flare. On the back is a pair of folding solar panel wings, which work with the three pairs of two thrusters on each foot to allow Hypernova to fly (story-wise) faster than the speed of sound. The following models inspired the design of Hypernova: Tribute to Exo-Force (TECHNIC shells, upper arms) 7712 Supernova (staff, color scheme) 7714 Golden Guardian (shield, shoulder pads, lower legs) 2008 Exo-Force sets (arm-mounted drones) LXF File | Brickshelf Gallery
"The wild guardian of Bo-Rela. Built by the Great Beings, similar to Umbra, with the task of defending a power node which lay beneath the jungles, unbeknownst to its inhabitants. Toriaze possesses a mysterious kinetic power which imbues his physical attacks with ridiculous force and speed, the activation of which is signified by a glow deep within the core of his body." imgur gallery (more photos) flickr gallery (higher quality) This is Toriaze. Fun build, I've gotta say. As it progressed, I didn't like the direction the build had taken, but was able to get it back on track and found something that I liked, which is the finished product you see before you. First time in a long time I've built a figure in lime, and first time I've ever integrated a Lego light brick into a MOC's torso. I personally am satisfied with the result. Toriaze is, among other things, my entry into the November BZPower flickr contest. Feedback is appreciated.
I was wondering if I could get some light bricks to incorporate into some of my sets, and have been looking, but as far as I can tell, you can't buy them individually. I can only see them being available in a few sets, like the 'Family House' and some of the Winter Village type sets. Am I missing something, is there a way of getting them?
