About this creation
Team “Legion Of Virile Energetic Moccers Unified For Frivolous Ingenious Naughtiness” entry for the “Objects shown at actual size” category.

May I present to you for your viewing pleasure “MOCaritaville!” What self respecting AFOL would ever be more than 20 feet away from his own personal LEGO blender?


A shot of the pieces disassembled. You can see there’s a base, the main body of the blender and a lid.



Here’s a close up of the main “glass” part of the blender. Do you people have any idea how hard it was to make the bottom of this thing “slope” inwards to give it a realistic glass look?



The base. I went for a simple, clean design here with three buttons. The “cool factor” on this portion is the “blades” of the blender.



“What’s so cool about them” you ask? The fact that they actually spin! Wahooo!



Here’s the lid of the blender. The lid fits inside the main body of the blender again using the “coning” effect used on the main body. Then topped with a clear top to polish off the look.






A pic showing that this thing can actually be held. It’s not one of those “don’t touch it or it will disentigrate” mocs. If you sealed the cracks on this thing (it IS Lego after all) you could use it as a glass!



And one final shot of “MOCaritaville” in its natural environment. Time to find my shaker of salt and start wasting away…



Fourth Wall Commentary: I tried… I REALLY tried to build a rotary phone for Lee, but… it just wasn’t happening. My next idea came to me while making drinks for my wife and myself. “I know, I’ll build a blender!” This is actually the second version of the blender. My first version was emailed off to some friends to put in their two cents before I posted it. Everyone really liked it but… one of my friends said to me “I like it… but… couldn’t you make it round?” And so the marathon build began. I got home from work at about midnight last night, popped in a movie and set about totally rebuilding “MOCaritaville.” The end result is something that I am REALLY proud of. I hate it (love it) when he’s right…

That’s it for now! Till next time true believers!

Ah yes. I remember this, but viewed it too early after my dark age to appreciate it fully. But I can't see enough of the coning technique. I still don't understand how you did it.

Some people claim that there's a woman to blame! But I know that this is one very creative build. Excellent work. -Sam

Quoting Kevin Walter This is really cool! I think it is very ironic that you had exactly the same idea like me. What are you doing now for the Atlantis category?! Modify your one, maybe with a big wave of water and crying citizens?! I'm really excited about your version of Atlantis! - Kevin
Now THAT good sir... is what we call irony. HAHAHA Check out what I DID end up building to see how close you were with this. ~ Chris.

My original comment never appeared for whatever reason, oh well. Great job on this Chris. Looks like superman's blender for his Fortress of Solitude. "Come Monday, I'll be holding....."

Interesting... a blender made out of LEGOs. Lets hope no-one thinks of using... we don't want to have shreds of pieces all over the house XD

Impressive. Creating curves in lego can be one of the hardest things to do. You pulled it off nicely.

Bang on Chris! You get extra points for naming it after a song by one of my favorite artists. :-) Seriously, this is a phenomenal build. You really did a great job capturing the shape of the glass portion. And the blades are a nice touch. You planning to put a PF motor in there to spin them on their own? Again, great work.

Nice technique here, Pal! Very innovative and creative. There's nothing greater than seeing someone present themselves with a challenge and roll up their sleeves to equal the task! (I'll bet the Mrs. even smiled at this one!)

I do have to say, that's one fugly looking blender... but better than I could make. I maybe could build a better-looking one, which would surely disintegrate if I tried to pick it up, defeating the purpose. You absolutely need to make some margarita glasses to go with it, I'm sure that would be a huge hit at Brickworld.

Quoting Dave Kaleta The concentric cylinders are obviously attached to each other somehow (I can tell from the picture of you holding it) but for the life of me I can't be sure of how you managed to do it!
They are attached! A lot of people that I showed this to before I posted it thought that those levels of different diameter were just "sitting" on top of each other. I searched high and low for how to make the concentric circles attach but couldn't find anything, so I came up with my own technique on how to do it (the real trick was doing it so that the seems didn't show). I'm already thinking about doing some glasses for this (using the same technique) and bringing the set to brickworld. Thanks for all the great comments everyone. This build was a lot of fun to do!

This is amazing! You made something straight out of the 70s, and it rocks (no salt on my rim please). The concentric cylinders are obviously attached to each other somehow (I can tell from the picture of you holding it) but for the life of me I can't be sure of how you managed to do it! Great build, superb presentation; the picture on the counter is critical. You tackled a very difficult subject and earned a well deserved 5 points from me.

nothing wrong with the moc. only noticed your kitchen outlets are upside down. =)

In fact I's say that, Keith :) Too bad fractions don't count here, huh? 3 points. Addendum: I think I was too short in my review. No, not the vote. But I usually take more time to explain my ratings. The build was easily worth more (it's fantastic), but the colors... man, just a bit of effort there could have granted you 1 or even 2 more points. I would never think of buying one of these if it was on a shelf with others, more colorful ones.

Oh ya - my blender is grey too BTW; however, I have to admit that it would be that much cooler with an imperial logo on the side. Hmmmm, I wonder if my wife would let me get away with that... Lee.

Stop your grinnin' and drop your linen! Chris can build - dang. I am not sure what these other guys are having (but they must of had a few too many to be handing out threes), I'll have strawberry please, with a splash of lime on top. The lid put it right over the top (pun intended) and earns you a five (5) points. Now where are my keys 'cause there is no way I can walk home in this condition. Lee. (the last part is a bad joke - I have a zero tolerance for drinking and driving).
