When there’s something square in your neighbourhood

There’s been a lot of LEGO creations inspired by LEGO’s new Brickheadz line recently. So it takes something special to catch the eye and rise above the rest of the blocky crowd. James Zhan does exactly that with these renditions of the Staypuft Marshmallow Man and Dr. Venkman from Ghostbusters.

Mr. Puft is looking very dapper in his sailor’s hat, and there’s good work on his little red bow tie too. Setting him loose amidst some microscaled buildings is a nice touch to give an idea of a different scale. Peter Venkman looks fetching in his boiler suit, and the ghost trap is excellent. But just check out Smiler — the use of a green minifigure tub as his mouth is absolutely inspired!

    It’s Slimer (though the creator called him just “Slime”, and my computer has it flagged as being misspelled, so maybe there’s some weird competing autocorrect issue going on?), and the “tub” piece is actually commonly known as a D-basket. It’s D-shaped when viewed from above, and it’s designed to attach to a minifig neck as a medieval backpack of sorts.

    That Stay Puft is adorable. Since Lego has the Ghostbusters license, I could see these becoming a real product. I’d buy them!
