Mickey Mouse makes a clean sweep

The new Disney collectible figures are getting put to good use all over the LEGO builder community. Take this Fantasia-themed model from simply bricking it, for instance — I challenge you to look at it without starting going “dum-de-dum-de-dum-de-dah-da-dum…” under your breath.


There’s some nice building techniques on display in this tiny vignette — the “masonry bricks” used for the sideways-built floor, and the unusual use of technic pieces for the textured wall. But for me, it’s the old-school black castle corner piece, and the choice of an Imperial Guard’s torso for the Mickey minifig which mark this out as a cracking little scene.

Minifigures are all the rage now, but back in the day, if you wanted to infringe upon play with an unobtainable license, you had to build it yourself with small colorful pieces called ‘LEGO bricks’. Sure, they might lack the pizzazz that minifigures have (nothing beats non-bendable knees!), but with the right techniques, they easily become more enjoyable. With that in mind, builder delayice has constructed some cute pairs from our second favorite (after LEGO) big brother company, Disney.
