What you see here is the LEGO version of Victorinox’s Swiss Army knife proposed by LEGO Ideas member Tall Guy Brick called Multi-Tool. Instead of a can opener, a sawblade, a pair of scissors, a main blade, and more found in a typical Swiss Army knife, the LEGO Multi-Tool is an attempt to create a, well, multi-tool for LEGO enthusiasts.
Even though you will probably only need the Brick Separator, Tall Guy Brick has gone ahead to include a screwdriver, belt punch, magnifying glass, corkscrew, and a Technic Axle. The result is a Swiss Army knife-like “EDC”.
Also, despite the fact that all the tools are odd shapes, Tall Brick Guy’s clever design allows all the tools to collapse into a compact form just like a Victorinox multi-tool pocket knife. Needless to say, it is a super cool build.
Key design features (yes, it has those) include independently articulating/closable tools, customizable faceplate colors, and interchangeable accessories (though not necessarily of use, it is fun that you can do that).
When all the tools are collapsed into the Multi-Tool, it measures 14 by 5 by 2 studs (which should be 112 x 40 x 16 mm, according to Sariel’s LEGO Unit Converter.
If you like what you see, you may drop your one precious support for the LEGO Ideas Submission Multi-Tool by Tall Guy Brick to help it achieve the final milestone of 10,000 supporters. It has 739 days to do so.
