2017 Skærbæk Parts Festival: Cages

Posted by Admin
Welcome back to our Parts Festival where we gave 60 LEGO® fans an hour to make whatever they liked using a range of new LEGO elements as 'seed' parts for their constructions.

Many people used the Ninjago fence - (Element ID 6195092 | Design ID 32932Fence 1X4X2 W Shaft No 1 - to create cage-like structures.

This microscale temple covers up parts of the fence, giving it quite a different feel. Many of the seed parts are used here. Note how the two Plate 2X2 W/ Reduced Knobs in Reddish Brown (Element ID 6196221 | Design ID 33909) slightly tuck under the tiles that have been offset using 'triple jumpers' Plate 1X3 W/ 2 Knobs in Black (Element ID 6199908 | Design ID 34103),

The square pattern within the fence design really shines here because they change position from row to row.  The structure is quite clever in its simplicity - the cage's base covers 9x5 modules so that fence pieces can  alternate position in each row.  Triple jumpers are the perfect size piece to finish off a 9x5 construction!

Those square holes in the fence are designed to fit a sideways 1x1 piece such as the green tile seen here. Black 1x4 plates with 2 studs (92953) and ingots (99563) make a nice top. 

Smaller still! Just three different pieces are used in this build but it looks great thanks to the intricate details within the design of the fence and 'that weird Minecraft piece', Plate 2X2, W/ Design in Reddish Brown (Element ID 6163991|Design ID 27928).

We have more to show you of this interesting piece, and we're posting new models every day.
