Lego GBC Observer 👁 Week 49, 2019

Welcome to week 49 of the GBC Observer.  Today we will look at some of the modules that were created for the Great Ball Pit Challenge 2019 - Wheels Up!

I've put together this playlist of 13 of the 15 modules that were entered.  It's going to be hard for me to vote when so many great modules were built!

Have a great week everyone!

Lego GBC Observer 👁 Week 48, 2019

Week 48 of the GBC Observer for 2019.  Some great new modules showed up over the last week that really impressed me.  Lets get into it!

First up Rohan has created a module that allows 2 people to interact with it.  The theming is great as well.  This is really taking interactive GBC to the next level, well done!

Now let's take a trip over to New Jersey to see the GBC that was at BrickFair last weekend.  Nice job with the new dozers!

Here is one of the entries for Challenge 2019 that I'm hosting which wraps up in a few days.  Ryk's use of the coaster track is pretty cool!

Have a great week everyone!

Lego GBC Observer 👁 Week 47, 2019

Here we go, a better late then never observer post for week 47 of 2019.  A lot of new modules and mechanisms showed up on YouTube over the last week, and there is lots to see!

First up, Aussie Brick Chick shares a layout from somewhere in Perth.  It has a lot of "new to me" modules.  The tilting ramps module with the different cities is quite nice to look at.

Next up a GBC Display from people in LuxLUG.  Lots of "new" modules/mechanisms to be seen in this video as well!

And lastly lets take a look at the dozen of modules that Caz has built over the last year in a well behaving loop 🤫.

Have a great week everyone!

Lego GBC Observer 👁 Week 46, 2019

Here we are at week 46 of the GBC Observer for 2019.  These are the latest GBC videos that I really enjoyed!

First up is a new lift mechanism from a Japanese builder.  I would describe it as a tip and shove type movement, very nice.

In this next video, BayLUG member Nonsense Wars shows us his "auto-dozer" module in detail. He explains both the mechanics and the theming, great video!

This clean set of 4 modules can be re-arranged and they are all powered from one PF-L motor.  A great looking shared power system!

Have a great week everyone!
