NEW LEGO Storage Opportunities

I have recently found some new and interesting LEGO storage units.

This is the IRIS LEGO 6-Case Workstation and Storage Unit

There is a smaller version with three drawers.

This is another design called the BOX4BLOX Lego Organizer.

If you don’t have a large enough collection to warrant drawer-type organizers. Here are some options using bins:
LEGO 4-piece Square Stacking Basket Set with Wheels TSB-SQ

or the
Lego 4PC Project Case Set each case of which has dimensions (3.125″H x 13″W x 12.25″D).

This is an interesting possibility: The Container Store LEGO Storage Brick (2×4), which comes in several colors

which also comes in a smaller size
The Container Store LEGO Storage Brick (2×2)

and smaller still…

or you can always revert to the plain white IRIS 6 Drawer Cart

Naughty Nestor is Bent on Destruction

Some time ago, I invented this character Naughty Nestor.

Naught Nestor

Ready to Blow up some LEGO creations!

Nestor does not play well with others.
He doesn’t play well at all.
His favorite pastime is blowing up LEGO creations.

Here is an example of what Nestor is capable of.
This creation is called Stalker and it was created by Misterhaan.
But Stalker is being stalked!
Look out Stalker!
Look out for Nestor!

Look out Stalker! You are being stalked!

This animation was made using LDraw, POVRay and a Matlab script that generated a set of POVRay files each with the parts individually spinning and moving away from the blast center. Add a flash of light in a few images, and voila! Explosion!
