It was impossible to grow up in the 80′s and not play with Legos. I spent countless hours building whatever my imagination would let me. Unfortunately Legos do not appear as ubiquitous in a child’s life as they once were. I was surprised to see this clever and delightfully meta machine allowing the owner to create their own Legos. The kicker is that the machine is in itself, made from Legos.
Joseph of Replicator says, “This is an exclusive Lego set that you can purchase on the factory tour in Denmark. It has semi-functional injection molding mechanics. Really a neat toy.”
“The set consists of two moulding machines, the first was a replica of the original hand operating injector back from 1949. The second, Larger one is copy of the current Moulder that LEGO uses today that … well made the bricks that made this model.
Each model has working features – the little one can ‘press’ the mould together. Where as the large one has a little slot to put in 1×1 round plates in (or raw abs) , followed by a separate mechanism to ‘press’ the mould together. the little 1×1 round then drops down an incline and into the yellow basket below – where it waits to be whisked off by machines to storage.”
