It's December, and that means we're counting down to two things Star Wars The Last Jedi and Christmas (not necessarily in that order). And what better way to count down that with a LEGO clock or watch? Join me as I check out a new Stormtrooper alarm clock and BB-8 watch as build a couple holiday polybags. Anything that passes the time before Santa visits is a good thing right?
Time, there's never enough of it. Every day I find myself racing one of these for some reason or another, I just have too much I want to accomplish. And now in a true twist of irony, here's something else I don't have time for, building a steampunk clock like Zilmrud. I'll just have to admire his, but not for too long, gotta get back to work.
What a time it must have been in the late 1800's and early 1900's, a fanciful new invention was coming out practically every month, opportunity was everywhere and craftsmen still made the furniture. The occupant of this study must have been fairly well to do, but had excellent taste. Builder Jared Chan shows us how vintage is done.
what do you do when your plastic cuckoo clock breaks? Build a new, better one out of LEGO of course! That's exactly what builder Miro78 has done and as you can see the results are brilliant. There's no little birdie, and the weights are just for show, but it's still a functioning clock, and a fine looking one I might add.
Builder gonkius has crafted a thing of beauty here, a fully functional clock with an NXT at it's core. This isn't some fancy trick clock with a motor driving the hands, it's a fully functional clockwork with an escapement and pendulum. It's a wonder of LEGO engineering, and beautifully built, and it's just as gorgeous with it's skin on. Check out the video to see it in action and click through for more pictures.
