New artwork for LEGO 18836pb04 shield

A drawing of the 18836pb04 LEGO shield.

The LEGO Classic Castle shield 18836pb04 is part of the collectible Minifigures series. Time to create a new drawing of the artwork. I have to find a way how to incorporate this new shield in my previous poster and t-shirt.

Emmet’s Full Size Dream House

In the LEGO Movie 2, Emmet is inviting Lucy to his dream house. Similar to a Tardis, it is bigger on the inside than from the outside. But when we get to see the backside of the house, it becomes clear that there is a full size version that is different from the set 70831. I too several screenshots and tried to assemble this full size version of Emmets house based on the shots from its rear side.

The house can be opened up by removing half of the roof and by opening up the other half. We have the famous couch and the double decker porch swing. Here are some screen grabs from the movie and their MOC counterpart.

LEGO Brick Dimensions and Measurements

The LEGO bricks are precisely designed to fit perfectly together. There is a 0.2mm gap between bricks next to each other. The gap between two bricks stacked on top of each depends on how careful to pressed them down. Of course there are several websites that show you the exact measurements, but some of them were a bit confusing or even broken.

LEGO 2×4 Brick (3001)

I enjoy working in 3D so I used Fusion 360 to create this technical drawing of the LEGO Brick. You can download the model over at GrabCAD and the PDF file from here.

LEGO 1×4 Technic Brick (3701)

The technic bricks have a hole in the side for pin connectors or axles to go through. I had to cut open a brick to get the exact design of the inside tubes right. The model is available at GrabCAD and the PDF file from here.
