Nice Parts Usage! Week 3: Take That Apart Right Now!

LordofLegoLordofLego Member Posts: 311
edited July 2015 in Building and Techniques
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.

This week's part is from my suggestions box. It was suggested by @Shib and I thought it was a good idea. Soooooo...

4654448: Element Separator


I'm not going to bother with the information on this one. It's in every set with more than like six pieces, so chances are you have one.

Or two.

Or seventeen.

Shouldn't be too hard to think of something.

    I actually like the natural slant for putting the control screeny thing (you can tell I know nothing about treadmills).

    Oh and since the Flash has pants technically this includes a piece from each of the challenges so far.

    I didn't they made it in anything other than orange.
  • FauchFauch FranceMember Posts: 2,447
    I think it comes from town hall or horizon express? they make them green when there are a lot of orange pieces.

    Mine came from the HE. According to BL it is green in the Palace Cinema as well but I would've sworn the one that came with my PC was orange. Perhaps they discontinued the green and switched to orange? It is green in the movie poster sticker though.

    The green separator came in Horizon Express because of all the orange pieces and in the Palace Cinema to go with that monster separator on the movie poster.

    Quick little park build with a slide!  There's a green separator in the back, too.

    So who won? I was going to join in on this one but I've been working on another build. I was actually going to do something like snowhitie. I'll do the next one if I have the piece.

    It's a tie between @Fauch and @dannyrww because of their creativity and interesting techniques. Danny didn't really use it right, but his was too funny to pass up. Tomorrow I will post the next challenge. I have no time today.

    The next challenge will be even more late. I have the part, but I don't have the time.

    @LordofLego - Can I suggest you try announcing the part on Friday instead of Sunday? It give people the Weekend to start the build. Also the time difference means that your Sunday announcements might not be picked up by some people until Monday morning.
