A lineup of rebel scum is assembled

I’ve always loved LEGO microscale building. It’s all about challenging yourself as a builder to find the simplest and smallest expression of something that remains immediately recognisable. Whilst not exactly regular “microscale building”, I set myself the same challenge with these creations, trying to depict iconic characters in a “minimalist domino” style, using as few pieces and colours as possible. I thought the heroes of the Rebellion would make for an appropriate line-up and I’m pleased with how they turned out…

Once I started building in this style I just couldn’t stop — it’s fun, but surprisingly challenging to capture the essence of well-known characters in so few pieces.

I really liked the line-up aspect of the Star Wars figures so aimed to continue in that vein with further models. Here are the Avengers, minus Hawkeye — no matter how many times I tried, his outfit and appearance just isn’t distinctive enough to capture in this style..

And sticking with the superhero theme, here’s the Dynamic Duo…

    It’s still not the most minimalist I’ve seen, where characters are usually represented with three basic 1×2 bricks, but it definitely allows more creativity in the final result. The color-banding thing is creative in coming up with the original idea, but more a mathematical exercise after that.
