When the first Star Wars movie not part of the epic series, Rogue One, was released, people had a mixed reaction. Personally, I loved it, and a lot of great characters were introduced. LEGO creator Nobu_tary has been building some amazing creations of a few of them using key parts from the official buildable figure sets, but making a number of delightfully unique design choices to give them personality. Take this shoretrooper, for example.
Flickr user SuckMyBrick has created these wonderful brick versions of characters from 10 classic movies. Can you guess all 10? Post your guesses in the comments!
Matt De Lanoy (Pepa Quin) turns to a classic subject I’ve rarely seen in LEGO form before: Looney Toons. The figures are spot on. Now all we need is for Matt to build Elmer Fudd to hunt the wabbit and duck.
Kristal (part of True Dimensions) has brought to the brick one of the most beloved childhood friends, that sagacious bear, Winnie the Pooh. Pooh also has his perfectly quaint little home in Hundred Acre Wood, though I am a little disappointed that there’s no bridge from which to play Pooh-sticks; oh bother. There, are, however, instructions to build Pooh if you’d like one of your own.
The entertaining piratical musician was built by Sweetsha. The dreads look appropriately unwashed, and I like how well the essence of the character is conveyed in a relatively simple build.
Sweetsha is apparently engaging in a seed-part contest, with the brown claw piece as the mystery part. His floating windmill island is also worth highlighting. The clouds as structural elements to stabilize the base and hold the flying machine aloft are a nice touch, and the round Hobbt-door is too cute. Be sure to check out his flickr-stream for more cool models utilizing the brown claw.
