Our Favorite Lego Projects
You can find pictures of amazing Lego creations are all over the Web. Here are some of our favorites:
Sawaya says, "I used over 10,000 individual Lego bricks to build the replica of Han Solo frozen in carbonite. I bought a lot of the bricks directly from Lego.com as part of their bulk sets. A lot of the bricks also came from sets, in which I picked out the pieces I needed. This was one of my first Lego sculptures so I was still learning the best way to amass large quantities of brick. Now, after years as a professional Lego sculptor, I now order hundreds of thousands of bricks in a rainbow of colors from Lego whether I immediately need them or not."
Hurbain says, "Getting this clock to work reliably for extended time periods was a tough job. Balls tend to get jammed in the input hopper or in the chute. But finally I was able to get good precision with few glitches (just some balls falling from the lift from time to time)."
