As promised earlier this year, it is about time to share our LEGO 3D rig, build out of „technic“ bricks. The only thing „non-LEGO you will need, is a base plate for your digital camera. You can use (almost) everyone from any tripod you own already, buy a new one, or order it online – like this one from Manfrotto. In the model the base plate is represented by the transparent LEGO plate „hovering“ on top.
I love LEGO since… well forever, I guess. It’s with me since early childhood days, and I passed the virus on to my son, who last year started to make his first steps with stop-motion animation. He handled my professional equipment so well, but for obvious reasons (I happen to need it for work) does not have access to it, whenever he would like to play around. That’s not ok. Since we own an iPad 2, we came up with an alternative solution we would like to share:
Because my last post was a rant on Star Wars (in German language only) I felt a bit bad, so I thought it would be appropriate to share something positive about the old trilogy, in LEGO. Precisely in 8bit(or „brick“ so to speak)-LEGO-Sideways-Design. This is something I enjoy doing more and more. The idea is, to build anything with the most basic bricks available, and as small as possible. And with moving parts. Or „round“ shapes. Simply everything you can imagine. That’s what an X-Wing could look like in 8BLSD:
The upper two wings are movable, like they should be.
