Dots Parts Fest

A few months ago, Elspeth from New Elementary asked me to play around with a few new Lego Sets from the dots series, namely the bracelets.

There are a bunch of results, which will be showcased time by time where this post will be constantly updated.


The Virus edition

For starters there are the interwoving bracelets which give a nice irregular and organic base.

Some applications of this technique – the viruses are here!

Here are three connected bracelets forming an endless stream. This never went beyond WIP.

Some sketches.

And finally some sketches inspired by and with the (mostly printed) tiles from those sets.

JH AGF-7000 w tan paint job

Long time I was seeking that TLG would release the large quarter circle piece in tan. And now with the new pirate cove set it finally happened. Still a few parts are not available in tan, most was fine to replace with a similar part, except one (2 same pieces) prominent part. Can you spot it?

Here’s the tan version of my interpretation of the famous

Alakuneda Think Tank as seen in the Ghost in the Shell anime.

Here you can find the building instructions for the light grey version.

Jigabachi

Logicoma

Metatrain

Meta is one of the rare Street Artists in my city who’s work is absolutely original. He inittiated a spontaneous project, after finding a book with pictures of trains in a pile of rubbish on the streets. He forwarded all of the countless fantastic images of real and model trains to many of his Graffiti and Street Art colleagues. I was lucky to be able to pick a train from the book and the SNCF Jouef BB 26000 locomotive immediately caught my attention with the vision of a brick-ified version. The project sat on my desk for about two years before recently I managed to make my version.

I concentrated on the basic shape, the color scheme and some distinct details. As just copying something in existence does not attract me, I decided to implement two twists. First of all I wanted to break the train while keeping the shape. Secondary I included my alias into the sides of the trains, referring to Graffiti and the expression bombing a train.

Something Cyberpunk/Anime/GitS inspired with a heavy dash of titanium metallic.

Btw it’s Marchikoma, the time to show the iconic robot class some love.

This is a further creation in the spirit of the Titan Series with a slightly more realistic/insectish approach.
