    Ok, so I went nuts this weekend designing a dock for my 928 and Nokia Wireless plate. This is the result. I haven't had a chance to build it. I'm afraid the parts list is quite extensive and kind of expensive. The only I have done for sure is made sure the phone WILL charge with 2 plates and 1 flat tile between and it does work. Almost every part is available on Pick a Brick on lego.com. Some need color changes if that's the only other place to buy. If there's enough interest I can post a link to the designer file.

    That's sweet! I personally would like the link to the designer file so I can check it out and I'm sure others will too.

    Ok, here goes. I hope this works...

    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...20dock%202.lxf for the designer file
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...0dock%202.xlsx for the Excel BOM if you don't want or need to install Designer. Keep in mind, some items won't show up as available in Lego.com pick a brick. For example, a 1x12 plate isn't available in black but it is available in grey. Not really a big deal for me, I just swapped colors. I didn't update the designer file to reflect this. Also, kind of a biggie, 8x8 black plates aren't available either. I think I ordered grey again, or maybe white. It was a long list.. ;) The peg connectors aren't available at all it seems. I have some so it's no big deal for me. Good luck! If you see anything that should be altered, let me know. This is my first attempt at a custom model using designer. If you use it or share it, please link back here. I want to see your work!

    Thanks

    Got it built! Had to make some modifications, though. The top plate for the phone would not allow it to charge. Happy with the result though. and the funky color thing is because Lego Pick a Brick online didn't have enough of the right pieces in the right colors.

    It's really over-engineered, but I don't care

    Fun project. Now to think about one for the iPad...
