And boy, have we patented it!

Every year on January 28, we celebrate the day the LEGO brick was born. On that day in 1958, LEGO submitted the world-famous patent for the new brick design. Despite having an iconic meaning for the worldwide community, so far, hardly anyone has tried to recreate the document with plastic bricks! BrickinNick is here to fix the situation with an awesome rendition of one of the patent’s pages. A flat “paper” piece includes all the notes and comments combining both brick-built and printed ones. But the best part, of course, is the 3D bricks in various angles and cross-sections. Nick perfectly captures different drawing styles on the patent documents, like crosshatching, placing plates the other way around. The contrast between the surfaces is spot-on, and I wish a model like this one would be turned into another LEGO House exclusive set.

    It’s also on LEGO IDEAS, so don’t forget to support it there to help it become a real set!
