“Doing more to improve the image of the English world-wide than any officially appointed ambassadors, Wallace and Gromit are the epitome of the English character.” – UK Icons nomination
Aardman Animation LEGO creations have popped up on The Brothers Brick a couple times in the past, namely Shaun the sheep and a particularly grand day out.
This time German builder Andreas Weissenberg gives us A Close Shave.
The intrepid window-washer/inventor/cheese-lover Wallace is joined by his trusty, mute, heroic pup pal Gromit. The characters’ distinctive looks are not only executed well, but this model also conceals some compact motorized functionality within the motorbike and sidecar! Check out the video to see Wallace and Gromit in action!

Now that the second series of Disney Collectible Minifigures are available, LEGO fans are already using them in creative ways. For example, grubaluk took Chip and Dale and turned them into a selfie image on a smartphone. To finish the scene, the builder made adorable versions of Disney’s beloved chipmunks. Dale’s goofy charm is intact here, complete with his face turned away from the camera with a toothy grin. While the image is not exactly mirrored on the screen, Chip and Dale’s expressions certainly are. The overall scene captures the spirit of Disney’s little rascals while, at the same time, bringing them into the modern age.
