Product Idea

Spike the LEGO Dragon

Spike is a friendly young dragon who lives in the colourful and fun world of LEGO!

This model is challenging to build, yet satisfying. It is formed of mostly simple elements such as regular square/rectangular bricks and plates- no curves here! Another thing that sets this model apart is the hinged arms, wings, and mouth. These can be moved and posed manually, when younger children play with the model, but there is also the potential for the more experienced LEGO fan to add motors and program them to move as they wish! The inside of the model is therefore largely hollow, to aid with the addition of motors if desired, and to make it lighter.

The design of Spike was inspired significantly by my recent trip to LEGOLAND Windsor, as I was amazed by the large-scale LEGO sculptures, built using mostly simple bricks to create a structure that is anything but simple. I thought that this would be an interesting concept for me to experiment with myself- only I chose to design Spike to be a more manageable size to keep the cost down when attempting to build him in real life!

Please support my project if you would like it to be a reality, and want to have your very own "Spike" on your desk, bedside table, or in your child's bedroom/playroom (if they are lucky enough for you to not keep him for yourself!).

Thank you for taking the time to view my project, and feel free to share it with other people who may enjoy it!

My other project is a model based on Planet Skaro, from the Doctor Who series. Check it out at https://ideas.lego.com/projects/121505
