Secret Lego III: The wine-glass brick

Welcome to Secret Lego, where we show you the stuff Jørgen doesn't want you to see!

For this, third episode of Secret Lego, we're gonna return to the brilliant multi-purpose wine-glass brick:
There it is. These come in many different colours, but the main ones are clear (as above) and black. It's used often as any sort of liquid-holding vessel (glass, cup, tankard), and also sometimes for spaceship greeblies due to their bumpy nature.

But what is so special about this brick? Well none other than the 'uniring', a little ledge on the inside of the brick used to wedge other bricks in, such as...

  • The 1x1 circular plate: this has the all-important 'wedge', the circular protrusion that must be a certain diameter.
  • The frying-pan brick: quite a useful brick for tennis rackets, but quite useless if you try and use it in this context.
  • 2x2 parabolic dish: looks great as a lamp with a lampshade.
  • Ice-cream brick: Well, duh! But why would anyone want an ice-cream in a glass??
  • Large, tubed pole: A great way of mounting this pole is using it on top of a wine-glass brick. Looks great as a pillar / stand for something.
  • 2x2 disc plate: these can be found almost anywhere, from clock faces to pizzas. Mmm, pizza.

...and many more besides! So go on, have fun with that brilliant brick, and remember:

Sshhh! It's a secret!
