A fully posable adult Link figurine from the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I’ve always liked Nintendo videogames and for a while now wanted to render one of their renowned characters in bricks as a tribute. The initial thought was to make a figure with a fully posable body. This meant many articulation joints, but […]
A transforming alternate from Creator set 31007 Power Mech called “Toxic”. If there’s one subject difficult to render with bricks, it’s transformers. Swiveling parts everywhere while maintaining structure integrity is one thing, but having both modes look decent is another story. Keeping all this in mind requires a lot of compromises. Add to the formula […]
This prehistoric monster is an alternate of 31008 Thunder Wings. This T-Rex type of dinosaur is certainly something different than the official models. This beast has plenty of articulation with hip-, knee-, and ankle joints, including swiveling neck and tail. This ferocious creature can even move its arms, although it prefers to use its jaws.
Jumping-jack girl Lola with several joints of articulation. This model was specifically made for one of my LEGO courses in which kids got the assignment to build their own Jumping-jack figure. Of course I had to design one myself as inspiration and example on how to build one. Because jumping-jack play figures are not so […]
This funny robot character is an alternate of Designer set 4888. This set has some great parts, but it’s tricky to come up with any good alternates. Luckily it contains a lot of hinges, so I was able to build some articulated droid, called Mr.Y, which fully spelled forms MisterY.
My first and only creation built mostly with Bionicle parts. Sometimes you need a break from the usual stuff, so why not build a Bionicle figure instead? Meet Bi(r)on Black, a stealthy, ninja type of figure. In the night this black figure is almost impossible to spot, but put him on a white background during […]
The classic SideSwipe transformer, based on the Lamborghini Countach. 2 types of models were already a while on the ‘to do’ list. A highly detailed 1:17 scale sportscar, based on a real vehicle and a transformer. So why not combining them both using the original SideSwipe as inspiration? With a lack of specific wheelarches and […]
Banjo and Kazooie, the famous N64 video game characters made exclusively from set 4884. As one of the best platform games on the N64, those crazy characters deserve more attention. Banjo the not so smart bear, and Kazooie the sarcastic bird go on an adventure to rescue Banjo’s little sister. Having to deal with the […]
The Tatty Bear, also known as Me to You or shorter Me2U bear. Background This cute little bear is often used to express love or friendship towards someone else. This was made for a friend of mine. It has articulated arms and legs. The biggest challenge was to give it a cuddly and soft image.
Scrat the squirrel from Ice Age, built exclusively with parts from Designer set 4884. When mentioning Ice Age, the character that most people seem to remember directly is this cute little Squirrel Scrat. Always looking for those precious acorns, which are more like unicorns to him; (almost) impossible to get hold of. My main focus […]
