1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    instructions for this will be available soon :)

    the little knob on the side switches the dock from car dock (not useful in the house) to multimedia dock... (a magnet is on either side of the checkered flag piece - both hold each other on, while the negative polarity & position of one activate the car dock mode, and the reverse of it, activate the multimedia dock mode)

    ive done a few "upgrades" to it to make it more reliable since the photos, but still have not harmed (modified) any legos in the making. Aside from taking a hand from a minifig for a "min/max" thingy.

    let me know what you think :) (and if you think its worth my time to put instructions together)

    assembled versions...

    That makes me miss my legos!!! I heven't played with legos in about 20 years.:mad: Nice work!

    I know what I'm asking for next Christmas.:icon_ banana:

    "Sweet spots" are located in the rear of the phone about where the "fingernail divet" (don't know what else to call it) is in your battery door. It's pretty flexible though...especially if you have a good magnet.

    I don't see the charging cable attached - is there a hole for a micro usb cable in there? I don't think Lego made USB passthroughs. :)

    Here are some instructions on how to take a photo without the flash bouncing back into the camera lens. STAND AT A SLIGHT ANGLE, LEFT, RIGHT, UP OR DOWN.

    When you lose that "kid" in you that is a sad day indeed. We should all remember how to play... :biggrin:
