Decent weather afforded me the opportunity to photograph lots of the minifigs that have been waiting in piles around our living room. I’m too impatient to dole them out slowly, so I uploaded them all at once, which obligates me to blog ‘em all, I suppose. ;-) Anyway…

I love building musical minifigs, but my taste in music generally runs to indie and alternative rock, and those bands pretty much all look alike in minifig form (white guys in T-shirts and blue jeans). Thankfully, I was chatting with Nelson Yrizarry and he suggested using Voldemort’s face for Alice Cooper. Hurray! :twisted:
