LEGO ITheatre





Introduction: LEGO ITheatre

About: I'm mrballeng's son. I like spending time with my friends, playing on my iTouch, and building LEGOS. I also like to eat cheese rice and salmon. I post instructables under my Mom's account.
I made this LEGO iTheatre  so I can enjoy music and watch my favorite movies. I started with a cardboard version but I wanted to make it better. So, I made one out of LEGOs. My Dad showed me the LEGO contest so I decided to enter it. 

You can use it as a display for you favorite Mini Figures. The speaker fits right into it. When your not using the speaker, the iTheatre works as an amplifier. 

Step 1: Gather Your LEGO Pieces

Find a platform to build on. I'm using a platform from a space set. Measure your ipod using LEGOs. Grab enough so you can build a wall as wide as your platform and two brick rows taller than your ipod. At this point you can also decide which accessories to add on. I thought it would be good to use movie props. 

I use an old cookie sheet to keep all my pieces together. 

Step 2: Build the Walls

Build the back wall 16 layers high. Build the side walls 7 layers high. The side walls have a notch in the top layer to prop up your ipod. Make sure to interlink the bricks so it stays together better. I didn't interlink the walls because I wanted to take it apart for travel. 

Step 3: Build the Accessories

I found my accessories in my uncles garage. They were in an old plastic bag. I think they are from a LEGO movie set from the 1980's. To build the camera I put three circular 1x1's on. Then put a piece on the bottom so it could go on. 

The clapperboard snaps into another piece so it can go on to. 

Step 4: Put It All Together

I put 2 flat pieces on the top and another 2 in front on the bottom. This makes a ledge for mini figures on top and accessories on bottom. All that's left to do is choosing which mini figures to put on. 

The speaker fits in the bottom perfectly.

    Good job sir! Hang in there & in no time you'll be showing your Pop's all your tricks when you post new 'ibles! I use to go out with a girl who loved playing with Lego's at McDonald's. I met her in college, but she had a youthfulness that she really enjoyed them. I hear variations of Lego's are very popular! Keep on building. :)

    That is pretty sweet! I might just have to break out my bin of legos and try this out. I've been looking for a good way to hold my iTouch. And the idea of using a cookie sheet to hold them is genius, there's nothing like just using the floor and stepping on them :P

    Awesome... I am sorry you just missed the Father's day contest, this would have been a winner for sure.
    Keep them coming, you are a bright kid :[)

    Did you make this or did your legos come alive while you were out and built it for them selfs....hehehe. Great work keep it up!!!!

    Hey, this looks like fun...Nice job!!!

    What, no polished beaten metal?

    Work hard, youngling, and will soon eclipse your dad. (If you need help, PM me.)

    That's very nice. Its a clever idea.
    I hope your Mummy and Daddy let you help make their Instructables too. When my boys were little they made lego models like you, and now they post their own Instructables.

    Awesome job on integrating the speaker! Please post more stuff!
