With Halloween coming, it was time to build the "Great Pumpkin". This liquid fuels loading facility is build predominantly from 64 orange brick separators.Over the years, I've accumulated quite a number as one can see. An internal bracing structure is used to hold the brick separators in position. This structure is modular, so each time I acquire 8 more brick separators, I can increase the internal supports vertically by 5 plates. Maintaining the proper ladder length will be another issue entirely. Maybe if I get enough of the dark turquoise brick separators, I can do a stripe in the tank. In addition to the bulk tank, the facility has a guard shack, office, and a shade over the piping. I believe the guard shack came from a Batman LEGO set, but I added the Octan sign. The Octan truck is a City set. Everything else is hand built for this piece, including the DOT-111 tank car ("upgraded" to DOT-117 specs, link to the thread at bottom). [
A not-so-serious MOC made as entry for a BeLUG (Belgium Lego User Group) contest: here is my TIE-Separator: TIE-Separator by Veynom, on Flickr Yes, we had to use any brick separator as part of our MOC. I used 32 of the current orange version. This MOC ended up second out of 26 entries, behind an elegant green grasshopper.
This is an example, how we can use the brick separator as a building element. 45l by Spiros Geropoulos, on Flickr The angle of the Separator gives interesting options for sloped building. On a more abstract level, using the Brick Separator as a building element, is a way of presenting the versatility of LEGO elements (and the LEGO philosophy). We turn something that is designed to separate and destroy, into a creative part that supports builds (instead of tearing them apart). More pics on FlickR. I've also submitted it to LEGO Ideas.
