Mr. Potato Head from Toy Story.
I originally made this in 2012 using dark tan for the body, but my 2020 version uses medium nougat, which I think is more accurate. I updated a lot of the internals due to better SNOT pieces being available now, and slightly updated the arms and hands as well.
My friend (and amazing artist and builder) Paul Lee was inspired by the Lowell Sphere to build a Mickey Mouse back in 2011. I’ve always liked how it turned out and wanted to make my own. It ended up taking on a life of its own and has resulted in six different Disney character builds (so far); this is the first of them.
I started this bust of Boba Fett, based off the Lowell Sphere, maybe 5 years ago, and kept it as a WIP in my bin of sand green plates. It wasn’t until just yesterday, when I purchased the Brickheadz Boba Fett and was able to use a good amount of the pieces to finish this model to my satisfaction. I’m REALLY happy with it! :)
Hello everyone! I’ve been pretty quiet in the last few months. I just realized my last post on the LEGO Ideas MMPR Project was just over 6 months ago… WOW! Life’s kept me busy–not completely away from LEGO–just away from the internet.
Anyway, here’s my latest: a rathtar from The Force Awakens. I’ve always loved making brick-built Star Wars creatures, and The Force Awakens offers several cool new ones. It was a fun build, and I’ll admit it’s always fun to use the Lowell Sphere as a base for any build but also incorporate different elements like the tentacles. My favorite little feature is that it fits a minifigure!
Oranges are my favorite fruit, and one which I very infrequently partake of. Orange makes everything better: juice, chicken, soap, food fights; you name it!
I’ve had these built for a while, but decided to finally take pictures and post them as an homage to Florida, which will be my home for the next few days as I attend the Emerge Americas Techweek Miami 2014 to work with IBM for some LEGO business.
I created the TIE cockpit design based off the Lowell Sphere back in 2011, originally for a TIE Interceptor. I then made this TIE Fighter, and have been occasionally revisiting the designs of the two since. I decided it was time to finally take some pictures and post them online.
