    A pretty quick little custom weapon for Wheelie. It's a slingshot, and a little gun (using 5mm peg on side).

    Can be a shoulder pea-shooter for when Wheelie wants to feel like one of the big guys.

    He can do the gun-face after watching AOE.

    The slingshot can store on his back, and on his waist (by wedging 3mm peg in the space above Wheelie's leg).

    A force to be reckoned with -- nerd power.

    And close-ups.

    Used 3 Lego pieces in total; no glue was required. For tools, only used a hobby saw, nail file for sanding, and a small drill for the barrel tip indent.

    Question: What color elastic do you think would be best?

    For three Lego pieces, that works incredibly well. Which ones did you use?

    The 凵 shaped part is from a magnet hitch piece that came with a train set:

    Only had to sand down its connector slightly to fit a 5mm hand better.

    The grip/gun barrel -- no pic, sorry. Only had the one. But you can kinda see what it was before I cut it down. A ring on top that would connect onto one of these:

    and off the side of the ring, sth just like half of the piece above.

    The 3rd is just anything with 3mm bar that I cut into two pieces.

    Do you think a pink hair elastic would look better than the clear one? Still thinking about which elastic color I'd prefer.

    I'll see if there's any number on it, but not likely, because it's probably fake-Lego. Lots of good quality KO Lego available around here, and just as good for Kreon customs and whatever I need pieces for. If looking for a particular bunch of pieces, I'll usually go to the real-Lego shop and dig through the bins. So my real Lego is all mixed in with my fake Lego.
    *edit. Nope, no number on that piece. There's also the piece not pictured above that I hope you can visualize with my description. The hitch piece looks like this when separated:
    (And any 3mm thick bar piece, like the one in the pic, will do.)
