Minnie Mouse

I started my Mickey Mouse (based off Paul Lee‘s, which was in turn inspired by the Lowell Sphere) with no intention to follow up beyond the original build, but it’s morphed into seven builds so far. The last of those builds is this Minnie, which I originally wrote off as uninteresting and not possible with the color palette LEGO currently offers. I was wrong on both counts; once I found that there was an “official, non-standard” (red dress with white polka dots) version of Minnie, I decided to give it a go, and I’m really happy with where it ended up. My daughter is too.

Banana Stand

There’s always money in the Banana Stand!

Since I posted my original Banana Stand in 2015, I’ve received many requests for instructions, sets, stickers, etc. Since then I’ve been able to refine the design and, more importantly, have some professionally printed and die-cut stickers made up for the MOC. I heard the calls for making this available loud and clear. I wanted this to be a special kit; my first publicly available kit that incorporated full color PDF instructions, custom figures, high quality stickers, all in a fun build and a nice package!

Rathtar

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!

Han Shot First

“Going somewhere, Solo?”

LEGO Han Shot First

This Iconic Scene from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope was recreated with figures from my birthday set (75052 Mos Eisley Cantina).

The lights used for the window and table were provided by LiteUpBlock. Their new selection of battery and USB powered mini LED lights are amazing, and caused me to finally take a picture of this vignette I’ve had sitting around for five or so years (albeit with the older versions of Han and Greedo).
