Lifesize LEGO Riedell R3 roller skates

These awesome brick-built roller skates by Julie VanderMeulen look sturdy enough to take a spin around the local roller rink. Seriously, at first glance I thought I was looking at two pairs of real skates! The lifelike toe stops, shoelaces (with aglets!), axles, and the accurately-sized wheels really sell this build. The stylish black and yellow color blocking and the R3 lettering on the heel isn’t bad either.

    There was no way I could look at these skates compared to the originals and not take a few minutes to comment!
    Julie is an example of what all LEGO builders should ascribe to! I loved her realism and details. And yes, I agree, they look like you could just slip them on and take a spin in the park or roller rink! BRAVO, Julie!
