Once-ler House

The Once-ler’s house from Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, designed and built by Kristal.  This is her first custom designed LEGO model, so there was a lot to learn about what pieces exist and what is possible.  It was really cool to see some of the things she came up with.

The fact that the movie is coming out next week is purely coincidental.  We didn’t even realize it was being released until a few days ago!

Labyrinth Marble Maze

Edit: This project achieved 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas and passed the review process! It is now an official LEGO set. For more details, check out the Maze page!

Here is my latest LEGO model, a completely functional custom built marble maze game, commonly known as a Labyrinth.

It features a built in removable ball storage container, travel lock, and interchangeable mazes. I also designed a Space themed and Medieval themed maze, which you can see below.

Lest We Forget

With Remembrance Day just around the corner in Canada I thought I would try and build a LEGO tribute to honour all those who have fought for freedom in the world.

Lest We Forget

Perhaps Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae said it best in 1915….

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Flanders Fields

WRG Mark V Dragonfly

A minifig scale LEGO racer.  I originally planned to build a series of these racers at different scales, but this was the only one that I actually finished.

A few weeks ago I thought I’d try my hand at building a Canadian flag.  A little while later I built a Swiss flag.  Before I knew it I was on a flag building bender.  In the end I built flags for 28 countries.  Most of them are pretty basic builds, but a few of them were kind of tricky.  You can see them all below, and instructions for the Canadian flag are above.

In order of appearance are the flags for Jamaica, Canada, Gambia, Kuwait, Finland, United Arab Emirates, Botswana, Laos, England…
