#558 Favourite Brick Friday: 42446 Minifigure, Neck Bracket with Back Stud

This week's favourite brick is a favourite of the awesome builder Ralf Langer, who utilizes the minifigure neck bracket in ways never really seen before. Usually, it's attached to a minifigure and serves no other function; despite it's stud it doesn't really connect well with the other Studs Not On Top pieces on offer.

Ralf instead uses multiple neck brackets connected together, realising the potential for a range of applications. 4 can form a cross which has many uses in MOCs thanks to the unique shape and thin profile of the piece; see the pictures for uses in flooring, roofs and even bottle stands!

Check out his two MOCs the piece is featured in here:
