BrickCon Colab?

Posted by xccj , in Lego Conventions Jul 10 2013 · 793 views

I know BrickCon has done some pretty cool collaborations in the past, but the closest the Bionicle gang has come is to build a mosaic.  But here's an idea I have, so feel free to critique it, add your own ideas, suggest improvements, ext.
So I built this tower out of Bionicle limb pieces and reinforced with Hero Factory limbs and liftarms.  It's 3-4 feet tall, and relatively sturdy, but bend a few joints wrong and it'll bend over.  It's nothing super awesome to look at, but it's tall for something made purely with Bionicle / HF elements.
So here's an idea for a collaboration; we all build Toa / humanoids that can hang onto the tower.  They can hang onto the edges, dangle from the supports, or be trapped inside.  Ideally, I would say that each figure would need to be about the size of a Toa Metru or an Av-Matoran body.  But I would suggest not using super advance techniques.  The figures should be relatively lightweight, and not be fragile, because they're liable to fall off.  So, basically make a cheesy basic Toa.  :P
Should we have a certain theme?  Certain colors, or do we want to just throw whatever random stuff we all come up with on it and call it good.  See how many we can fit on it before it breaks?  In theory, each Toa should have some ability to connect to pins to keep them securely in place, but other forms of grip could also be used.
So, what do y'all think?  Anybody interested?

Sounds fun. I can throw something non-fragile together beforehand if this (and I) pull(s) through.
