The LEGO Brick Separator is a very useful tool to separate LEGO elements and save them from teeth-marks (and indirectly save your teeth too!). While the first generation of the LEGO Brick Separator was only included with large and exclusive LEGO sets (and thus was quite rare), the updated new Brick Separator is added to pretty much all medium to large sets. This of course means that most LEGO fans will have quite a few of them. In fact, some LEGO fans use the number of Brick Separators they have as a status symbol – the more Brick Separators, the more LEGO rich they are! 🙂
Having so many Brick Separators in the hands of creative people almost guarantees that these useful orange (and less frequently green) tools will end up in some very clever LEGO creation. After all, the Brick Separator has several standard connection points; two studs on top, tubes on the bottom and even a small axle. So what sort of things can you build with a Brick Separator? I will show you some examples below for inspiration.
First up is a cute momma and baby duck pair by Conrado PLG, with two Brick Separators forming momma duck’s beak.
The LEGO Separaptor by Alexander incorporates five Brick Separators for the body of this prehistoric creature.
Somewhere between creature and machine is this LEGO Clown Fish X-wing Fighter by dr_spock_888 with sixteen Brick Separators. The same builder also created the various LEGO Brick Separator weapons below.
Because of the shape, connection points, ridges, and color of Brick Separators, they are most often used for various vehicles and spaceships. The first two are examples by Simon Liu, and the last two are by F@bz.
And how about using several Brick Separators to make a hand? Like in this LEGO creation by Jalkow.
Building with LEGO Brick Separators is often used as challenge for contests during LEGO fan events, and this is something you can also do at home; see who can build the most clever LEGO creation with Brick Separators! Keep in mind that if you use up all your Brick Separators to build something, you won’t have anything to take it apart with. 🙄
