The Vault Savings No Loan

The Vault is a coin bank made of LEGO bricks.  It has a secret door that opens in three steps. Only its creator knows the correct sequence.  Of course you could smash it on a concrete floor but it would be like blowing up your local bank to make a withdrawal : it is not advisable.


La Voûte est une tirelire faite de briques LEGO.  Elle possède une porte secrète qui s’ouvre en trois étapes.  Seul son créateur en connaît la séquence.  Bien sûr, on pourrait toujours la fracasser sur une surface de ciment mais ce serait comme faire sauter votre banque pour y faire un retrait : pas recommandable…

Building Utopolis - Original Assembly - Assemblage original

Building Utopolis - Phase 1

The ultimate master plan of Utopolis is laid out in the orthogonal method.  Eight-brick high bridges serve as the grid to which buildings are attached.  The City is conceived to sit on a shallow body of water - perhaps extending from the shore of a lake of the ocean.  The modular design of the structures make the arrangement flexible and allow a continuous expansion.  The following photos show the first official assembling of the metropolis in 2006.


Le plan ultime d’Utopolis s’organise autour de la grille orthogonale.  Des ponts de huit briques de hauteur relient les différents édifices.  La Ville est conçue pour être développée sur une surface d’eau à partir des rives d’un lac ou d’un océan. Le design modulaire permet des arrangements versatiles et une expansion continuelle de la Ville.  Les photos qui suivent montrent le premier assemblage officiel de la métropole en 2006.

Darth Vader Skyhook by Paul Yperman

Darth Vader Skyhook by Paul Yperman

Skyhooks are structures orbitting Coruscant and are owned by important persons to keep their precious things safe rather than having them on the surface. Darth Vader owned several of them. Circular structures are always a challenge in LEGO building and this one shows a great mastering of the medium.  This piece is made of 6900 pieces.
