#524 Favourite Brick Friday: 30377 Arm Mechanical, Battle Droid

Today's favourite brick is the droid arm, a very common piece you're likely to have lying around in your collection. It's been in plenty of official sets (it was released in 1999 and is still in today's sets) and you often get a few as spare parts, so today we'll be looking at how you can use them in your MOCs.

You can use their unique shape, thin profile and connection points to create various bridge and railing designs. The bridge featured is by Anthony SÉJOURNÉ on Flickr and the railing by Rudi aus NRW on Flickr.

Theses pieces have also been used in various techniques by Playwell Bricks, and work especially well for creating rounded shapes with slopes. Check out his posts on Flickr here:
