For Lego GBC Super Tower Battle I wanted to challenge myself to build a tall accurate shooter.

The initial idea always had two shooters to reduce the fire rate down to 1 ball every 2 seconds.

The Superhero aspect came later after my kids started to place mini-figs on the building, from here it evolved to show specific powers for each hero.

Night Lighting

This module is set up for night running and uses a range of lights for different effects.

The initial loader uses one of my custom Lego UV/Led lights, with the UV shining on the balls and the lego light lighting up the gearing.

There are also lights shining through various transparent colors to light up the shooter barrels and superheroes.

I also use another UV light to make Green Lanterns construct glow.

In order to fit, it breaks into several key pieces.

  • Tower-Top and Net
  • It is also packed with Lego GBC Cardan Lift V2 as I run these modules together.
