So I wasn't going to add a new page for this, but I thought it deserved one after all the great comments it got on Lugnet.
About this creation
I had this Idea while typing a message, and after Larry Pieniazek encouraged me to do it, I threw it together in half an hour, ran a render, and uploaded it! (Go to the Brickshelf Gallery for the .mpd file)
I may make this 'In the Brick' sometime. Right now at least, I don't have Han Solo in Carbonite, because, despite my huge collection, I bought my first Star Wars set, a Flash Speeder only a few months ago. When the Star Wars sets first came out, I began hating LegoŽ for it's commercialisation, and did not buy the Harry Potter, Star Wars and now Spiderman, which have replaced Castle, Space and Town respectively. Even the Flash Speeder and the Spiderman's Train Rescue I bought recently are for kitbashing. So there.
Hey, cool, I wonder how I missed it being put up on MOC pages. Ya, perretty neto, I thought it was funny when I first saw it, but you should get it up with normal Lego's, the set with that han-solo piece is pretty chepo. Later.
I like every bit of it! And I completely agree that actually replacing 'town' theme was very 'unwise' :-) ! (Though I think that the Lego DID understand their mistake now, having done the new theme) Keep it up, we are expecting more MOCs from you (please try doing something from SW) -Victor
LMAO! I love it! It's okay if in reality it might roll over (after all this was created in the digital world where gravity isn't as much of a problem). If you built it "in the brick," you could always just make the "road" a little longer and add a set of wheels behind the roller. Fantastic idea!!
Samarth, I love the idea behind this, but not the execution of it. First, my main complaint is that it couldn't be build as-is in real LEGO, because the roller wouldn't stay upright. (Remember - Gravity works!) My other complaint is the 1x8 black plate across the front of the model - It's an eyesore hanging out the ends. I'd suggest applying the 2=5 technique to even it out, and make the base a perfect square. (If possible in this case!) I would have given this a 3.5 if I could: 3 is too harsh, but I question a rating of 4. The idea behind it is pure brilliance...
