Bat Music Box
Continuing the retrospective today.
This is one of my oldest MOCs. It started as a desire to blend a real object with a sense of Whimsy. To make a fully functional (LEGO) musical jewelry box as a gift for my partner.
Then the LEGO Batman Movie dropped. And it became the perfect chance to showcase one of my favourite minfigs from that wave too..
It is fully functional too. The lid opens and closes, there are spaces for jewelry. And when you turn the handle on the side, music plays, and Ballerina Batman spins around.
It's just a bit fragile and, and could use a bit more internal space.
Also a huge hit at exhibitions. The lid is far more technical and advanced than, to give that "wow" for other AFOLs; and the kids love getting their hands on it to give it a go., and listen to it play.
I only wish I could've found a music box that played the Batman theme. But Greensleeves will have to do.
