If anyone has any ideas for more challenges, I'll add them to the list.
This thread makes me wish LEGO Masters would come back on already.
>>842 OP, just wanted to tell you that I love this thread and I've started brainstorming a few of these.
>>888 Awesome, can't wait to see! Nice trips

>>845 >Reuse a unique mold for something other than it's intended purpose
>>1191 Peak LEGO.
>>1191 Erm illegal building techique
Open file (145.46 KB 800x600 seafood for thought.jpg)
>>1193 >illegal building techique Surprisingly, this is technically a legal build. Lego has incorporated a Technic pin / 1x1 brick with studs on 5 sides into numerous builds, because the open space inside the studs allows the pin to sit inside the brick without being stressed (this doesn't work inside a normal brick because the extended areas on the lips of the pin stick out farther than the inner space of the brick). My fishman uses the same method; the two lips of the pin rest inside the open studs (concealed by the 1x1 eye pattern tiles). To my knowledge, Lego only uses this technique with the SNOT brick that has studs on five sides; this is probably because kids can assemble it without any specific positioning and the piece can spin more or less freely and will normally settle in a position that doesn't stress the pin. As I said, mine is "technically" a legal build because I made the effort of aligning the pin lips to the gaps formed by the open studs
>>1196 I was joking, my friend, its a very nice build. Very creative use of an otherwise relatively useless part (the Batman cowl)
>>1197 Thanks! I intentionally set out to use that piece for something else, and after I flipped it around in my hands a few times I realized it looked like fishman jowls. Also for the record it's a Batgirl cowl, which is why it has the bar extension on the back to attach her ponytail.
>>1199 >it's a Batgirl cowl Fair enough, I never got any of the Batgirl figures. My last Batman set was the two-tone Twoface armoured car set.
I'm adding "Make a stained-glass window" to the list of challenges.
