LEGO builder LegoJalex is hoping that his LEGO Star Wars bobblehead concept will become a reality. We are too—I mean, just look at those LEGO heads wobble! The question is, how did he do it?
I was thinking about how a bobblehead could be made by LEGO bricks, and how the wobbling effect could be built. There is no real LEGO spring that can be used for this purpose, so I had to think of something else to use. After some trial and error I found a simple technic using an LEGO antenna piece which creates a wobbling effect that works really well.
I’ve seen LEGO and I’ve seen bobbleheads, but I’m pretty sure this is the first time I’ve seen them combined. Plus, the heads are swappable. Put Leia’s head on Vader’s body. How hilarious would that be? Check out more pictures and video below.
