Category: Life size LEGO object - Why should minifigs have all the cool stuff? Pick a LEGO “hand held” item (anything from a gun to a broom to a briefcase or a screwdriver, anything made for minifig hands) and build it in real life scale. You must show a picture of someone holding the item (to show proper scale) and also include a picture of the item next to the minifig sized version of the piece that inspired it. (No brickarms or aftermarket stuff for this category. Choose a LEGO brand item)
For my entry I decided to make the Alien Conquest ADU pistol at life-size scale. The proportions are warped a bit especially around the handle area, so that it fits more comfortably into a human hand. I tried to imagine what details a sci-fi pistol would have at this larger scale, since the original piece was limited by its need for simplicity at its small size and the use of lightsaber-bar connection points, which were no longer applicable to a life-size version.
Pew pew! This was one of my most favorite creations, and yet, I failed to comment, which is, indeed, a FAIL. But this gun, is WIN! I like all of the details and if I made one of my own one day, I couldn't be any happier than with a gun like this. :D
Genius, totally recognisable from the thumbnail, then you've done a great job of 'filling in the blanks' to add detail to the larger scale one. Certainly want one of these for 'pew-pew' moments! Great stuff, good luck.
Um... WOW! I really liked Halhi's entry and thought it was worthy of a win, but then I saw yours. Amazing! Actually, at first I thought, "I can't believe Nick JENSEN lucked into such a good category with all his HALO builds", but then I realized it was A DIFFERENT talented Nick.
YES! This is it! Since your wip pic over skype this has really taken shape. I love what you did to fill that handle area in. A fantastic finale Mate! You better keep the plans for next years show bro. -Thoy
