The dudes abide

It’s hard to believe that it’ll be 5 years next month since Angus Maclane unleashed the CubeDude phenomenon upon the LEGO fan world, providing AFOLs with a simple template that would make ‘character building’ simple, fun and enormously popular.

In that time, the CubeDude Flickr group has amassed almost a thousand unique CubeDude creations, covering the gamut of characters from every corner of pop culture. And while the CubeDude fad has certainly diminished since those heady early days, it’s fun to see newer builders picking up where the rest of us left off. As demonstrated in this growing collection by Cristiano Spiller

Milhouse and Krusty from The Simpsons
 

“Chromed up” Daft Punk
 

Gentleman’s favorites, Jessica Rabbit and Hello Kitty
 

Babar the Elephant, and his wife Celeste
 

But mostly notably, Cristiano just found out that he is soon to become a ‘CubeDad’, resulting in this rather unique addition! Congratulations, Cristiano!
