Look ma! LEGO made us a transformer!

Builder Serge S really really gets his money’s worth out of the LEGO sets he buys — especially the 10242 Mini Cooper. Last year he shared his alternate builds of the set that produced an elegant sports car and a monster of a truck, all from the very same set. This year he’s back with the same pieces to share with us a slick-looking two-propeller monoplane that includes a base stand. If there’s one thing I can learn from Serge, it’s that creativity gives birth from constraints, and perhaps all of us should whip out our older sets and give alternate builds a go!

    That’s an amazing piece of work. Anyone else remember when Lego boxes used to have photos of alternative builds on the back? Glad to see someone is still thinking about rehashing parts.
