Snowstrike 3000

January 14, 2016

Okay so I’ve not touched this blog in a looooooonnnnngggg time, but we’ll see if I can improve on that this year.

As most of us are fighting winter snows (okay in my case El Nino rains) I figured I’d share a creation I did as a building challenge last year.

If you’re in a LEGO LUG, many of us were offered the Winter Skating Scene sets in bulk to do pretty much whatever we wanted with them as long as we shared the pictures with LEGO.

The set was offered originally as a promo for Christmas and looks like this
Winter Skating 1

So at BrickFair Virginia last year Beyond the Brick had a building challenge. They gave us all 3 sets of the Winter Skating Scene and asked us to build something in an hour. Now most people built winter scenes, but I built the Snowstrike 3000 😉

This was a fun little challenge and I forced myself to build out of my comfort zone by putting wings at delicate angles. The whole build pretty much fell apart when I put it in my luggage to go home. It was a lot of fun and allowed me to stretch my building muscles.

Did your lug get a bunch of these? What did you end up doing with it?
