The Ultimate Lego Top
Seriously, its sweet...
About this creation

This is my entry for Mr. Fassio's lego top contest. It can be found...
here!

EDIT: This entry, to my surprise was the winner of the 1-16 category!


This entry is 13 pieces, though it looks like it's more.


Here are some pictures of it spinning:













Here it is resting



This is where the cleverness comes in... You see...
I used a lego soccer ball inside of a tire as the bottom. The tire was a bit too big, which is why I used a lego rubber band as a buffer. In addition, it was originally not attached to the rest. I fixed this by looping the string with studs on either ends with the rubber band. Then, the edges were secured by being smooshed to the edges of the cone by placing a 2x2 round brick inside. The extra string hangs out the edges and looks cool. Confusing but effective!
Here is a diagram to help








And here's a video to prove it's spinning ability.

Hey, I forgot to comment on this the first time around. I love this top! From the main photo, it's very hard to determine the elements it's made of, which makes me want to click on it. The design is just genius. I haven't looked in detail at all the entries, but I assume this will be the winner!

Quoting Joshua Benjamin For some reason, when I saw that top spinning it reminded me of cloud city. Great job =)

The soccer ball is a stroke of genius. Although you need to check out your physics. Its center of gravity is a bit too high, that's why it loses balance so soon. Very cool, sleek looking top, anyway :)

Quoting Luke Chapman Really good technique, although the upside down way seems a lot better, seeing as how it was still standing after it'd stopped spinning. Just goes, you gotto keep it simple sometimes.
haha ya, that was pretty shocking to me too. But... I think it's smoother when it is rightside up.
