Product Idea

Toronto Rocket Subway Train

Final Redesign & Update

On

The original set was designed according to the bricks I owned and/or was able to purchase easily. That was the reason for such a HIGH piece count.  Ver#2 was redesigned with bricks I could order online.  Ver #3 (Final Version) is a way to reduce piece count further while using different techniques and new pieces I learned from switching over from LDD to STUDIO 2.0

Ver #3 Result

  • Over 1300 fewer bricks on the train cars from the original design.
  • Improved look and functionality of all the special features. 
  • Stronger build while reducing the pieces and overall size of the train.
  • More accurate and consistent colours.
  • NEW FRONT END - Operator's cab now comes off for easy access.
  • Custom Minifig TTC Operator uniforms.

Unofficial, official sponsors

On

I have talked directly to The Canadian Tire Corporation, and Tim Hortons about using their logo's as part of the TTC Lego Project.  Both companies granted me permission to use my lego inspired version of their logos.  I was hoping they would also assist the project with some kind of internal or social media marketing messages... Still hoping..
