That looks really good! It is pretty big though, but it's hand-made so I forgive you :lol:

This has inspired me to make a simpler 1x2x3 from lego. One question however. Does this come unscrewed? (by twisting it.)

Never thought I would see a fully-functioning 1x2x5 made almost completely out of legos. :shock:

P.S. That is a compliment.

Oh !! That's a cool idea, to make a really big handmade puzzle out of legos, rather than molding or 3D-printing the entire thing. I like the way it turned out, quite clean-looking.

Great work, I love it when simple mods pop out of nowhere, the kind that no one ever bothers to think of. Excellent work on a creative, novel idea.

Pretty cool!!

A very good idea to use Lego. That's the way new concepts are born.

Holy crap!!

Nice work. I can't believe it took so long for anyone to make one (and by hand!). The design is just so deceptively (sp) simple!

I really like this mod :)

Didn't expect to see Lego used. Very creative use of materials.

Nice!

Damn. That thing is HUGE!

How does anyone keep the suspended pieces on and make them turnable when not suspended? I can understand a 1x2x3's, but this?

When's the 1x2x7 coming out? >:D

Cool, see if you can make it a little less bulkier. I would really personally hate something that bulky.
