Good morning, and welcome to Nice Parts Usage!, the new game in the forum. In this game, I will pick out a brick and you will come up with clever new ways to use it or show ways you have used it before. Unfortunately, I cannot provide prizes at this time, but you may donate a polybag or something to the winner. You will have all week to submit entries and I will choose the winner next Sunday and start the next episode.

Those pants in the engine inspired this week's piece:
The celebrated 73200 Mini Lower Part, otherwise known as minifigure legs or pants. Available in an astounding number of colors and designs and in most Lego sets from this century, this is one of the most iconic Lego pieces of all time. Everyone has one in some color or another, so let' stee this week's Nice Parts Usages! Please, no custom minifigures.
saw the dog head in my spare bricks and came up with this lame idea lol
also my sister used every single regular white bricks
here is something a bit more elaborate, though I only really built the front, the back is unfinished. the pants at the top are also used as a hinge to hold the back part of the roof (the front part is held by other pants)
Someone tried a monthly mini-build competition once, but it never really took off, so it's nice to see this thread so active!
(I've always held the personal and slightly rude opinion that creative competitions like this are good for exercising the minds of crusty old collectors ;-) )
I had fun with this!
Both the full version:
And the exfoliated draft:
^like the tree!
Oh well, at least I'll get to sleep in my own comfortable bed tonight!
I don't remember imposing a limit, but five sounds good.
@SirBen ! Amazing tree.
