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! :)
Proto Man is the older “brother” of the titular character of the Mega Man video game series. I’ve always thought he was awesome with his shades, yellow scarf, and general aloofness. I’ve been wanting to create a large version of Proto Man for a while, and drew inspiration from Mike Nieves’ Proto Man and MOKO’s Masked Rider. I hope I honored their builds with this one.
Proto Man stands over 14″ tall.
Glad to have this off my list, and I’m really happy with the results! I initially got the drive to build this when the Series 6 Robot minifigure (with winder key) was released, but wasn’t happy with a rounded globe piece until LEGO released the spheres from Jurassic World. A free gumball to whoever guesses the amount of “gumballs” in the globe!
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!
To (more tangibly) celebrate passing the halfway point on this project, I wanted to build part of the Megazord. It has a removable sled that comfortably fits all five Power Rangers, too! Please continue to spread the word! #LEGOMMPR

Last summer I was commissioned by Lay’s® to make a sculpture of a Subway® meal consisting of a 6″ sandwich, a fountain drink and a bag of Lay’s potato chips to celebrate the two companies’ 50 year partnership and to be unveiled at an event in Las Vegas, NV.
The sandwich measures 15″ x 36″ and 20″ tall.
The cup measures 16″ x 16″ and 34″ tall.
The bag of chips measures 6″ x 18″ and 28″ tall.
This past October I travelled to Las Vegas, Nevada to build a 6′ LEGO sculpture of the NetApp logo. The build event took place at the NetApp Insight Conference 2014 at the MGM Grand over the course of two days.
Audience participation was a key aspect of the build. The NetApp logo is blue, and while the primary color used on the sculpture was blue, different colored bricks were added by the participants based on different levels of sponsorship.
The final product was over 8,500 pieces and was shipped and installed at NetApp’s corporate campus in Sunnyvale, California.
