I am Guybrush Threepwood, mighty pirate

Not all LEGO creations begin with a brilliant flash of inspiration. For instance, earlier this week SuckMyBrick was stumped. An attempt at building a famous celebrity using LEGO bricks didn’t turn out quite as planned, so the builder turned to their flickr followers for suggestions of how to salvage the build. Lucky for us, a couple commenters suggested that the character might work as Guybrush Threepwood, the protagonist of the Monkey Island video game series.

The BrickHeadz eye tiles make fantastic pupils when paired with the 2×2 and 3×3 radar dishes. A variety of curved slopes and curved arches are used to recreate Guybrush’s signature pompadour.

This just leaves us with one question: why is his head mounted on a plaque? I don’t know, but if this was an adventure game, I would definitely check behind it for secrets.

    Thank you for the attention/recognistion, it is an honor to be among the great builders reviewed on BB.
    And again I thank our fellow builders for helping me salvage the build with your ideas…. I can reveal now that it was originally intended to become the worlds biggest youtuber, swedish Pewdiepie. In retrospect Guybrush was a much more deserving and fun character to build so it turned out for the better!

    I might give Pewdiepie another go in the future but he keeps changing his look all the time so hard to keep up. :)

    About the plaque… I sometimes get real bored building bodies… I figured this might be a first of many to cover our walls at home.
