LEGO® Creator Robo Explorer Tips & Tricks!

    Description

    Fan creation by MGuest. In this video we demonstrate how to create irregular shapes that resemble rocky landscapes. The scale has been used to reflect the robot model, but this method of using slopes is easily scalable. The end product is a small diorama that makes a good display piece and sets a story about who this robot is. The technique shows how to build without symmetry and encourages a little more of a free-form build. Different gradient slopes and angles placed in different directions can create the perfect craggy rock face. It also demonstrates how to use larger pieces (BURPS) within these formations to build larger and quicker, but at the same time adding detail to these areas. Although in this example we have only used dark gray, most colors in the LEGO® palette can be used to create colorful landscapes. The rock is finished off with a flower piece to give the robot something to interact with and to demonstrate how color can help liven this up. In the video you can also see how the layering of plates can create a more exciting terrain beyond baseplates.

                  LEGO® Creator Sunset Street Bike Tips & Tricks!

                  Fan creation by MGuest. The aim of this project is to show how you could accessorize the bike model of this set by building a smooth road. In the video you will discover how to make a smooth road by simply building bricks sideways. You will also discover that using plates with bricks means you can add road markings to your layout. It also shows that if you build using this technique you can incorporate the use of slopes to make the road look a little worn with potholes etc. The technique uses basic elements that allow for anyone to build, and this style of build can be used anywhere to create smooth surfaces. You will also see from the video, by using plates and SNOT 1x4 bricks, you can build a raised curb that firmly attaches to the road section. This can be built as long and as wide as the builder wishes; the video is to demonstrate a building style. Lastly, using 2x2 smooth tiles, the whole build becomes studless and the finished product provides the perfect play or display area.

                        Fairy Garden House

                        Fan creation by chopper5885. This rebuild was inspired by the classic fairy garden houses found in gardens. These houses are a way to attract fairies and create a beautiful display piece. Creating the build by only using parts from the LEGO® set 10232 Palace Cinema was very difficult for various reasons. One of which being that there are only two green pieces in the whole set! Overall, I think I captured the cute and beautiful appearance of a fairy garden house with the pieces I had. I hope you enjoy this very detailed model. Fairy Garden House is an entry from the LEGO Rebrick contest: Be An Expert Rebuilder.
