This realistic flora build is making us go nuts.

One of the downsides to collecting LEGO’s Collectible Minifigure line is ending up with rampant duplicates, thanks to their blind bag packaging. Mellegobuilder must have run into this problem, as she’s got at least 8 of the acorn caps from Series 22’s Forest Elf figure. But, when life give you lemons, you make lemonade. So, when life gives you acorn caps, make oak tree branches. With just a few radar dishes, 1×1 round plates, and some flex tubing, Mel turned the accessories from some extra Forest Elves into a branch so realistic that it made the Brothers Brick bullpen do a double take. If you’re still looking to cut down on your duplicates, remember that you can always rely on our handy feel guides. But Mel has me thinking the duplicate figures might be worth it.

What is an Acorn?
