Hey guys,

I was a bit bored today and decided to make my own little LEGO Tux, and as simple as it is, I think it turned out great ! :)
First time using Wine, btw, it seems quite nice and handy in situations like this.

It uses only 18 very basic 2 by x bricks, which I guess most of you will have around the house.

Bricklist:

3 yellow 2x4
3 black 2x4
2 white 2x3
3 black 2x3
4 black 2x2
2 yellow 2x2
1 white 2x2


I've included one brick which sticks out 1 peg deep and 4 pegs wide out the back, so you can hang it up if that is what you like ! :)
It's very sturdy and obviously a very simple build.

Here are the instructions (http://phrea.imgur.com/legotux).
You'll notice that LEGO Digital Designer decided to view it from the back, I don't know why, but once you are done building, turn it around and it's indeed a cute little LEGO Tux.
LDD also decided to make the build a bit awkward, but since it's a very simple design, you'll have no problem figuring it out.

I decided to make this one because, well I love LEGO, and I only found a VERY simple one online, and a few VERY complicated ones. This one is just a little more fun than the simple one I found.

Suggestions on how to make it a bit better [using only basic bricks] are of course very welcome. :)

Have fun with your little LEGO Tux !

I thought it was going to be a little lego robot. They have kits for that kind of thing.

Has anyone got that software to work under Wine?

There's a C compiler in the Archlinux repos for them. You could compile it on anything, of course.

Nice one, quite impressive for such a small number of blocks.

The lego store near me sells predone lego penguins as keychains. Attached a pic I found online.

Thanks, I just had a look in AUR & found seven packages that are one way or another involved in programming or communicating with Lego's Mindstorms robot kit. :)

To be a purist; they're called bricks. :D
