    Cool Lego Case??? Hmmm...

    Hey i'm so cheap that i decided to make my own new case out of lego, and so far so good.
    I have finished one of the "legs" and i'm gonna have a total of five "legs", each one with an 80mm red led fan in it. It looks real cool in the dark and i'm still working on the body. The fans fit perfectly once u get one of the lego squares done, Then i will drill holes in the lego parts so that the wires won't be showing.
    Of course i will superglue all the lego pieces toguether once i figure out how the parts will go toguether... I will have pics once i'm done... so you guys just let me know wut yall think of this idea ... (I Will be providing a link to pics) Oh and is there a way to post pics on this thing?... if so ow do u do it?

    Sounds interesting enough if you can make it happen. Definitely interested in seeing it as it progresses. As for adding pics you can get a Premium Membership through SG and they will give you 5 MB of space.

    That does sound interesting, can't wait to see some pics. Like mentioned above if you want to upload your files here you will need to pay for a premium membership. Your second option would be to use webspace if your ISP provides any. And I could host your images if you wanted. Just send me a PM and I'll reply back with my email address.

    I would use an epoxy or something else, rather than superglue. Sounds interesting enough though!

    garage sales, flea markets and swapmeets. only chance of of keeping the cost down would be to buy used.


    have you checked eBay?

    Cool pics, I tried doing some Google searching for you to find clear Legos but no luck. I've seen them used on other peoples lego mods but no clue where they got them at. It would look cool though, expecially through the frosted one's.

    Yeah i want the clear legos just so that i can make cool designs in the sides of the case. But i'm thinking too much about the finished product when i haven't even drawn up the blueprint for the case.... and i don't have the legos yet... but finding legos shouldn't be a hard task... imma go to toys 'r us tomorrow and see if i can find sum clear legos. I'll have more pics later, and maybe i'll add some of my other case (which is a $120 case). And guys, if you have any ideas on how to make this case look cool feel free to post it on here! Thanx

    Ok you know what, legos are too hard to find. So i've drawn up a new plan for a cool looking case. I will post it on here later, it's gonna be worth my time.
    Let's just say there's metal, plexiglass or acrylic involded in this project, and alotta lighting, including see-thru drives ... it's gonna be alotta fun!

    yes i am aware that making a case out of acrylic plastic or plexiglass is gonna be a hard task... but at least you know where to find the materials you need... and i have already started on it. The see thru drives won't be done until next month. it's very hard to sculpt this stuff.... if you're not carefull it will break on ya. But it all looks good at the moment and i didn't know this when i bought the stuff but the glass is clear, not blue... oh well... guess i'm just gonna have to add some color!
