    never underestimate the power of Lego!

    It would probably end up being a very bulky case, but I'm sure it could be done.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    There be hundreds of Lego cases out there though a lot will have used glue in some areas with them for strength (except where areas need to be opened).

    It'd be easy u'd just need a hell of alot of lego and some glue and well thought out plan.

    Would a LEGO case be louder than a standard steel case ? I know that Alum. cases are a bit louder, as are clear cases. But what about LEGO ?

    The Lego case, having thicker walls, would probably be quieter... esp if any cracks are well-sealed (w/ glue or whatnot). Furthermore, the makeup of a lego brick would probably quiet things down too; the sound waves would have to travel through at least phases (solid, fluid, solid) before it left the case. My guess.

    never mind, check out this piece...its a lego case but i wouldnt be proud of it.....hes 16 too and its his first mod but i think he coulda done a bit more planning or actually do pla it cause it looks like my 5year old sister built that......heres the link cause he was sooo proud of it he took like 26 pictures of it...gotta give him some credit though the many many pictures of the lego case

    I wish ppl would be more considerate to others with their picture sizes :(
