Animation of Lego-Stones building a castle

Dear cgs-users,
I built up a Lego castle inside of cinema 4D with lots of modeled Lego-Stones (perhaps 500-800 Stones). It looks beautiful, but now I want to set up a little animation, let the stones fall down from the sky and build the castle from bottom to top, stone by stone.
Unfortunately I can't set a keyframe for every Stone, because it would take to much time and isn't that controllable.
So I thougt: We not try the PlugIn "Tranform", that allows easy transformations. But like "Shatter", this plug in destroys my Poly-Stones. I want the polystones to stay as they are, not to split up into its polygons.

Does anyone has an idea, how to get this animation done?

Thanks a lot and have a nice day,

Markus

As the image shows put all your bricks into a fracture object and and transform will not break them or fracture the objects. You will then be able to move them with the transform plugin.
