Nice Parts Usage! Week Eight: Jungle Cruise

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 two weeks this time around in a very special episode of Nice Parts Usage!

I will now point out some of my favorite plants.... That one... that one... Aaaaand that one. Oh, and this one:

4114348: Bamboo Leaves 3X3

These are available in two colors and have been in 173 sets. They were first produced in 1998. I want to see what you can make, so get to it! This has been...

Nice Parts Usage!




p.s. Watch out for Ginger... She snaps.

    I have a bunch of these, so I want to try - are we supposed to make a jungle theme build or just something using the part?

    Well, it would be very easy to do a jungle build, but I don't care as long as you use the part.

    Might have an idea, but since school started this week I'm a little busy with all the crazy teacher stuff.

    Well this is going to be interesting, I admit to having no clue what could this be used for in green.

    ^says the master of greebled garden scenes - lol.

    @Paperballpark Yes, that will work. It doesn't have to be a non-plant. That just wins you brownie points.

    @chuxtoybox, how fragile are his legs?! Looks really cool, though!

    They are  100% supporting him in these pictures but they are very fragile. Actually, ALL of him is very fragile! :)
       If anybody tells you those little plant pieces are easy to work with they're lying. They kept falling off. Then his arm would fall off when I tried to put one back. At one point he "exploded".
       As frustrating as that was it allowed me to build him better the second time. You can't get the full LEGO building experience building in a computer program. In the physical world there is a thing called GRAVITY. :)

    Er, isn't it time for a new one of these yet? :)

    I forgot last Sunday and it was Friday by the time I realized it, so by then it wasn't worth it. I can't think of a really good piece to make up for missing a week. Any ideas?
  • chuxtoyboxchuxtoybox Member Posts: 711
     A piece doesn't have to be obscure to be challenging to build with.

     Even though it's still a small piece, someone suggested the mug in another thread.

    Oh, that's right. I forgot about that. I'll do that, then.

    I ran out of time to do this week's challenge, but I WILL do it tomorrow morning.
