I Just built it and modified for iPhone no problems nice work iApple guy. I just widened the cradle & made less back wall to make iPhone lean at a nice angle, the hardest bit was finding all my bits in my sons GoGoSac full of lego but at least clean up of lego after was easy.

That's what I did!

GREAT IDEA!!!!!
I added a speaker on each side to the lego structure and it looks and sound fantastic!

iApple guy (author)kucherf2012-02-19

I think I will do that.
