Playing with The EYEcatcher is playing with two buildings in one. Each building with
his own appearance and function. Good against evil / Papilla* against EYEwoman.

can control because of the EYEdisk on their heads.
the transformation room, the minifig walks up via the extendable staircase,
pulled out from under the building. The minifigure takes place in the movable
(for- and backward) transformation chair where it gets the EYEdisk. The ‘All
Known EYE’ on the back of the chair decides which colour of disk the minifigure
gets, you can flip it left to right. Each
disk has its own power, for you to decide. When the light falls in from behind
in the transformation room, the trans bricks create an effect of dazzling
important object for using the transformation chair is the connection with the EYEsat.
The EYEsat is a standing satellite. You can place it wherever you want. The EYEsat
is also important for Papilla, because it is used to undo the transformation at
To undo the
transformation, Papilla has to shoot with the canon on the white square on the
foot of the EYEsat. The RC-canon is stored in the white building and can be
used by pulling the RC-canon out of his box. Prepare the installation by doing
the necessary steps and go for the decisive shot. When the EYEsat is hit, the
RC-canon picks it up and brings it back to base. The supercomputer Papilla uses,
can control the RC-canon and the arm.
On top of
the building Papilla uses the arm to catch the transformed minifigures and put
them, via the hole in the roof, in his box. The arm can also be placed on a set
of wheels which are stored under the building in a drawer. In the drawer you
also find the EYEdisks and the EYEspinner.
the transformed minifigures in safety and conquered the EYEsat; Papilla helps the
minifigures bringing back to themselves. By putting them on the backside of the
EYEsat you start this process . Put the EYEsat on the rotating device, the
EYEspinner, which is held by your own finger. Then spin it with the disk around
to undo the transformation.

question came from my wife when I told her the story, hahaha. The inspiration
and motivation for The EYEcatcher came from a number of things. It started when
I saw Lego Masters on the Dutch television, the episode where the participants
had to build their all-time apartment. This was the moment I took my Lego from
the attic. In first I wanted to build an apartment myself, finding interesting
Lego bricks inspired me to go another direction. The final moment for this
story was when I clicked an eye on a disk and put it on a minifigures head,
then inspiration came more and more.
finished the first concept, new ideas and colouring came up and became the
model what it is now. The model has contradictions and at the same time it
forms a unity. Black / white, blue / pink, red / green. I built it brick by
brick, ordering new stones and continuing building. It was a process of trial
and error and a lot of patience. But my enthusiasm kept growing for my first
Lego Idea project, also feeded by my 5 year old son who was very excited when
he saw it coming all to life.
In my eye
there are three reasons why The EYEcatcher is a fantastic Lego set. The first
reason is the new and unique storyline. Second is de cooperation between the
two buildings, each unique of themselves and closed the two buildings form a
unit. And last, all parts are movable/playable and can be used in different
I had a lot
of fun building it. What do you think of The EYEcatcher? If you like the idea,
please give your support and help it make the eye catcher in many homes. Thank
you, regards Erwin

EYEwoman. She thinks nobody can stop her, but Papilla is there to defeat
