My friends, I give you Lesson #1 of being a Lego Builder: Never melt your bricks.
About this creation
I was photographing a vignette and went into the other room to get some stuff. I smelled something burning a little bit later, and I realized I melted down some bricks. ;-;

I was testing out a different lamp for lighting underneath the vignette, and walked away for about 2 minutes. I smelled burning paper, and saw this. I dumped all of the figs off of it and ran to the faucet to run cold water on them - it helped!

In response to this, I made a BrickLink account yesterday. Many of you know me as being a cheapskate and not using BL, but I'm gonna use it now.

This really sucks, common parts. >:O

Well, This Sucks.



Don't be an idiot like me - watch your builds when you post them!

The damage is worse when it's deliberate. A few times I made mocs on wheels to see if my friend's moc (on wheels) could take it down, or fall apart trying. We would repeatedly ram each other's mocs together.

Hey Kyle, I was just stopping by to check out whats been going on on the pages (Since I am now inactive) and I can see people are dealing with the same Ol' problems, melting their bricks. :P

Guys, I used a lamp that my father used in college. 1980's lamp FTW! It is a very small 40 watt bulb, if it isn't given enough ventilation it will build up extreme heat.

Wow! What lamp did you used since it melted them in 2 minutes? lol never heard something like that before. Well lesson learned.
  November 11, 2012
Sorry, Kyle, but for the ones who didn't suffer that, it can be considered awesome. I wouldn't use that word (and obviously cool, that word is very ironic due to the heat factor), but I honestly find it interesting... and a bit funny. Only a bit. However I wish this won't happen to me ever. I'm sorry about this, dear. But, honestly, what kind of lamp did you use? Mine is powerful, but I know it would take hours to melt one single brick!

Wow, that's a powerful lamp!

Why do you people insist that this is "awesome" and "cool"? IT IS NOT. Yes, I might be able to use them for other types of builds, but it is NOT COOL OR AWESOME. I ALMOST MELTED ALL OF MY BRICKS IN A VIGNETTE AND COULD HAVE STARTED A FIRE.

Quoting Chris Yee Well, guess it's time for a surrealist MOC!
Oh Chris...I was thinking about that! I took them all apart last night with the help of a screwdriver, they look pretty cool. Half of them can be used on one side of the brick, so either a surrealist moc (possibly something Dali-ish?) wouldn't be out of the question. I could also use them for twisted and melted debris in war zones. >:D

I think you might want to get that lamp fixed if it gets so hot to burn paper and Lego pieces. That's over 450 degrees ferenheit dude!

Might as well keep them in-case you can use them somewhere. Maybe a melted down door or something?
