    So here it is. My Lego iPhone Dock. I based it off the same color scheme as my Lego iPad Stand and my brothers Lego iPod Touch Wheel/Holder. This one took a bit longer to make because I didn't want to overdo the blue and to slim it down a bit more than when I first made it. I had to use an iPhone 4 case in the pictures because I used my iPhone 4 to take the pictures. So here it is.

    This one I do plan on improving in the future, mainly to just make it look more appealing and to slim it down. So tell me what you think? Any improvements I could make?

    I'd also love to see your rendition of a Lego iPhone dock. So why not go out and try to make your own then upload some pics so we can all see (or not see) your creativeness.

    See I could add an extra level on but it would add more bulk to it. With my iPhone 4 in it it is very sturdy and cannot fall out backwards or forwards.

    Yeah today was a very slow day for me so I had tons of time to do whatever and just came up with these

    Is there enough room for the cable? I found I had to raise my iPod up in my lego dock so that the cable wasn't too bent.

    To the OP, great job.

    I will post some pics of my dock soon. Lemme go find my camera.

    UPDATE: Taken some pics of my dock for comparison.

    Right, I have so much Lego yet so little time so my dock has multi-coloured bricks in it (You're making something black but you can't find a black brick so you put a brown one there instead, you know).

    It took me around 20 minutes to build. I made this a few months ago. How does mine stack up to NoJoDeL's dock?

    Excuse the dirty screen on the iPod, please.

    Could put a microfiber cloth against those slanted white pieces to protect the back.

    This dock has a lot of room for modification. I could add a heap of stuff to it if I wanted. First I need to match up all the bricks to be the same colour.

    Also, perfect angle for me to view my iPod on my desk.

    What else should I do to mine?

    If you wanna know how to make mine, PM me.

    Nasra1n, I like how yours does landscape, the only thing I didn't like is the bulk of it.

    Here is some pictures of the dock I just nocked together:

    I made the cable semi-permanent (With a little duct-tape) so I can just pull my iPod straight out.
    When I rewire my sterio, I think I will put a jack in the dock.

    Ahh. I see you have multicoloured bricks also. I like it how my dock does landscape too, I originally made it for that (I was gonna find an app that showed PC CPU usgae, temp and RAM usage, but couldn't find one) and then converted it to do both orientations.

    @RandomEskimo - I don't like how high yours is, but I like your idea of making it semi-permanent. Not possible for me, as I am constantly moving between computers so my sync cable is always on the move. I may try your idea and connect the audio to my PC speakers.

    Let's keep these docks coming guys!
