Well, I got hold of a bunch of LED tea candles and went to work on them.

On the Wishing Well and Portal, the LED is multicolored and gently shifts from red to blue to green to violet to teal to yellow to white and back again to red to cycle again.

The Torch flickers like a flame. The Flame, water and portal effects are all clear silicone.

I wish I didn't have such a low speed connection or I would upload a video of the multi-colored LED effect on the portal and the wishing well.


I did my best to disguise the battery access of the torch and portal pieces so that they can still be used in the game without having to see the battery.


Also, I recently saw YANSOLO's prison set on ebay and watched its price grow to +$70 american for the 3-piece set. I decided to go to work on some corner, wall and door pieces. Remember, imitation is the purest form of flattery...

That's pretty awesome! I especially like the portal. Will you be selling these? Where did you get the led tea candles and what was the manufacturer's name?

Thanks

I got the tea lights on a wholesale lot. "Everyday home" is the manufacturer, they are a generic company. The tealights themselves are very poor quality and I had to rewire them (the internal wiring was all messed up-lots of re-soldering, 2 of a 6 pack were fried when they got to me).

The pieces here are proof copies for myself. I am waiting on a few more DF pieces to arrive before making many more torches. I doubt I will sell (on ebay) outside of the US because of shipping problems.

If you are interested in something, you can contact me at my email .

Please give me some requests on new items I can make with these and I will try to make them.

Currently on my workbench, I am working on...
2 LED portals (multi-colored)
2 Wishing Wells (multi-colored)
1 LED fireplace (Must improve on past design)
4 LED campfires (mounted on 2x2 floor piece)
10 torches (flickering)
1 vault door (wall with removable insert)
1 bricked-up wall (wall with removable insert)
2 Jail sets

That portal rocks!

(and the prison bars would be a great addition to a WA3 set for the vanilla Master Maze!!!)

Nice work...but i'm a bit disapointed:Yansolo's work is copied!!!:(

Your well is a mix of Yansolo's wells, and i won't speak of the torchs or prison set....I don't know you, and am a fan that already bought pieces from solo(partisan!!!!!arrrrgh)...if copying can be the best flattery, it also kills creation.

Your next step is to copy exactly Bombanat, and then finally Dwarven forge!!!No, i really don't like what you did;

why don't you create your own brand new pieces?

Sorry, but he didn't invent the flickering LED, nor the weel, or torch or fireplace.
He was among the first to use it, but that dosn't mean we can't do it. What are we supposed to do, wait until he mass produce them so we can have them ?
I rather make them myself. More fun and I like mine better :-)))

Thank you for the defense Crioux, I appreciate it.

I am not here to step on Yansolo's feet. I love his work. I just feel since I have the ability to use a drill and can sculpt putty, I might as well not spend a days pay on something I can make for the price of the materials.

And to galakorn, I respect the criticism but I am the first to make the portal design, and use rainbow LEDs (from what i have seen on this board)... I also looked at solo's torches and didn't like how the back of the piece had the battery pack showing, so I figured out a way to hide the pack so the piece was more playable. Heck, why don't you go after all of us for copying toy companies that have been making light up fireplaces for decades...

Also, I am working on LED centered minis and have been trying to get hold of a sci-fi accessories set so I could put some LEDs in the pieces since I haven't seen anyone else do that yet, and I wouldn't mind if someone beat me to it.

I think more specifically about the prison cell? That looks just like the one that Yansolo did " if memory serves which it rarely does "... anyway if someone can make these more power to them. I LOVE THAT PORTAL!!!!!!!!!! The others are great of coarse but I am just drawn to that thing!!! Please make more?? Many more, Kirk...!!

Just note that I didn't meant to diminish the Yansolo influence or what he has done, but I don't think that anyone should be offended if someone is inspired by their ideas for their personnal needs. We don't make a business out of theses.

Agreed !!

These boards are a forum to exchange ideas and inspiration. There is no copyright infringement in developing an idea that's been put out on display and isn't mass produced.

How do you think there came to be so many auto makers??

"No harm, no foul" as far as I'm concerned ...
