Red Submarine

Last night, when I was sifting through my red Lego, I decided that it might be fun to make a freestyle vehicle of some sort, all in red! This is a one person crewed cargo vessel  but it has been remodeled to accept passengers as well.

This is the overall look of the vehicle.

The pilot's cabin opens at the top so that on can get mini figures in and out easily.

There is a large door at the back of the vehicle so that large cargo can be hauled in and out easily.

This is a short animation I made using the vehicle.

Robot Lego by Game-master Allan Dotson

Allan Dotson came over tonight. He designed a game that he uses Lego pieces as the play pieces and builds a lot of cool robots from small Lego pieces. Here are the robots he built tonight. The last image is my minifig version of Allan as the robot builder.

Bionicle Mistika Mazeka cannon



Today I built a giant cannon with lots of ammo. Boy, I did not build the operator because he sucks, but his cannon is cool. I looked up the instructions on line. All the parts were given to me, completely disassembled with no instructions, last year.

Rahi restorations/rebuilds

Dad and I spread all the bionicle parts over the extended table and worked on Rahi (Bionicle animals). I rebuilt Gadunka from scratch while dad found Fenerak's missing leg (Dad rebuilt him last month), found the Gukko bird's wings, and build Spinax from scratch.

Watch my new animated Lego Hula girl dance. She even casts a reflection in the water, to prove she is real.

Tiny Robot

Allan Dotson told me last night that he makes tiny robots with a minimum of moving parts but still functional. I made this tiny Lego robot last night and dad animated it so you can see it move.
