盛通彩票登陆:Mix that funky music

I’m not going to pretend I know a lot about music, but I’m sure many are familiar with what an audio mixer looks like – lots of switches and lights, the functions of with I’m personally not familiar with at all. However, as a person who gravitates towards gadgets, these switchboards certainly do look cool to me, or maybe LEGO model of one makes them look cooler than they are.

The switchboard body uses some standard bricks, tiles, and slopes in black assembled via the SNOT (studs not on top) technique. This build is part of an Iron Builder challenge, the seed part is the with bar in dark red, but there are many other interesting small elements utilized here such as the broad-brimmed castle which serve as dials and the technic in yellow. Of course, I am a fan of trans-clear elements, and Snyder has thrown in a few of those like the minifigure heads at the far left and some light pieces that look exactly like LED lights. Snyder’s model certainly makes me want to learn more about these cool pieces of tech and how exactly they work.

More than your usual rubber-stamp build

Ah, bureaucracy. Nothing is quite like the teeth-grinding angst of shuffling papers and getting the right permits. There’s also nothing quite like this creation by . Making use of an unusual as a basis, they’ve managed to stamp out something new. There are a lot of great techniques in play, from the white rubber band around the pen clip to the layered that make up the pages of the book. But the skill used in inverting the rubber stamp’s pattern onto the page is the real treat for me.

This build is part of the latest challenge. Check out 盛通彩票登陆:our archives for more great creations from that competition.

盛通彩票登陆:A staple device for most

Although our world has become increasingly paperless in many ways, especially during our current situation, the stapler is still an office, home office, or desk staple – pun intended! Builder and Instagrammer showcases a wonderful yet simple LEGO model of the mechanical device.

Very simple elements are used in this build – plates, tiles, 1×2 jumpers, slopes, and a 1×2 modified plate with door rail. My favorite part of this build is the lying next to the main model – these are cleverly used to depict staples. Now, if only this stapler was red instead of yellow, it could’ve been a hilarious reference to the coveted stapler from the film Office Space. But, hey, I still do enjoy simple models drawn from the simple things in life.

The original creator, , had built a very similar stapler in 2012. It’s always important to give credit to builds and inspiration, of course this could be a coincidence, but we’re happy to present both staplers. Thanks for reaching out and “have you seen my stapler?”

I’m Batman. You can be too.

You should dress for the job you want and not the job you have. Which explains why I spent the afternoon in the HR office dressed as Batman. I wish I could take credit for that joke but it’s not mine to claim. Still, I’m certain LEGO builder can appreciate the sentiment as evidenced by this wearable Batman mask. This is not Riley’s first rodeo with 1:1 scale wearable art. Here’s the 盛通彩票登陆:Stormbringer from the Avengers: Infinity War and be sure to try D.C.s Atom outfit on for size. Also check out 盛通彩票登陆:Starlord’s helmet. Riley seems to give equal love to both D.C. and Marvel, which just shows we’re all superhero dorks at heart, regardless of sides.

If it’ll please the court, Exhibit A...the wedding photos.

A photograph is a literal snapshot of a moment in time, but often so is the camera. This LEGO disposable camera by reminds us that the real sweet spot for these was from about the late eighties to the early oughts. The builder pretty well captured the sort of the throw away cheap quality these cameras possessed. The lenses were usually plastic, the photo quality questionable but they served in a pinch. One popular use of these was at weddings. A disposable camera was placed at each table and wedding guests were encouraged to snap impromptu pics of themselves. Then once the honeymoon was over, the newlyweds would then develop their photos only to find a record number of butts, boobies, and ding-dongs. It was immature and a complete waste of film if you ask me! Thankfully we all do the same now but on our smartphones like responsible adults.
