I’ve loved the concept of LEGO Ideas from its inception and have been impressed by every set released. I’ve been waiting for the right idea and the right time to try my hand at a project. As a lifelong LEGO builder (and Power Rangers fan!), and now the proud father of two Power Rangers fans, this set seemed like a no-brainer. Please help me make LEGO Power Rangers a reality; if not for me and my sons, than for everyone to celebrate the upcoming movie and/or the Power Rangers’ 25th anniversary in 2018! #LEGOMMPR
Last summer I was commissioned by Lay’s® to make a sculpture of a Subway® meal consisting of a 6″ sandwich, a fountain drink and a bag of Lay’s potato chips to celebrate the two companies’ 50 year partnership and to be unveiled at an event in Las Vegas, NV.
The sandwich measures 15″ x 36″ and 20″ tall.
The cup measures 16″ x 16″ and 34″ tall.
The bag of chips measures 6″ x 18″ and 28″ tall.
I built a Naboo Starfighter back in 2003 before cheese and curved slopes were as prevalent as they are today. I think it hold up well a decade later, but I wanted to try my hand at this again. It’s 1:1 scale (one stud equal to one foot) and although most ships in 1:1 can fit a minifig, this definitely will not. Regardless of what you think of the prequels, it’s hard to argue with the Naboo aesthetic and The Phantom Menace‘s prime example of it.
I’ll blame the teaser trailers for the upcoming Star Wars – The Force Awakens for putting me back in full-on Star Wars nerd mode, and probably even more so than ever before. And with that, I’ll admit I love the Ewoks, the original Ewok Celebration song (Yub Nub), and probably everything Return of the Jedi. Here’s a little showing of that love.
This past October I travelled to Las Vegas, Nevada to build a 6′ LEGO sculpture of the NetApp logo. The build event took place at the NetApp Insight Conference 2014 at the MGM Grand over the course of two days.
Audience participation was a key aspect of the build. The NetApp logo is blue, and while the primary color used on the sculpture was blue, different colored bricks were added by the participants based on different levels of sponsorship.
The final product was over 8,500 pieces and was shipped and installed at NetApp’s corporate campus in Sunnyvale, California.
