THE REBRICK FILM COMPETITION

For the second time in it’s development process, The creators of “The LEGO Movie” (due out next year) are giving LEGO fans the world over the chance to participate, and have their creation become a part of the movie. The rules are fairly straight forward, build a LEGO scene, and then have your mini-fig destroy some element in the science to create a new creation to help fight the bad guys, all captured on film.

I’m a sucker for a well built LEGO technic creation, especially those outside the box. the natural inclination is to make heavy machinery models, so when someone takes the standard LEGO system, and combines a motor and a few other bits to make something that isn’t a GBC module or a heavy equipment, I get excited, and when I get excited I post. so here is True Dimensions LEGO Ball Clock!

It is no secret that the LEGO group offers the opportunity to it’s fans to see inside the factory in Billund at a special LEGO inside Tour, but at a cost of about US $2,600, and only 75 available slots, it is unlikely that most of us will ever get to go.
But Fear not, The National Geographic Channel has done an excellent video of the factory, the design process,and all that makes a LEGO brick a LEGO brick.
