Would you just look at this super cute LEGO sloth byChi Hsin Wei. I mean, do you see that precious little face? It is oozing happiness. The use of the wedge for eyes is perfect. Did you know that a sloths’ eyes don’t function all that well? They completely lack cone cells in their eyes and because of this all sloths are colour-blind. They can only see poorly in dim light and are completely blind in bright daylight.
However, the best thing about this LEGO sloth is not their cute squinted eyes, nor their claws which look just like the real deal. It is that sweet smile across that little face. This expression of pure bliss would have been a lot harder to achieve were it not for the perfect use of the sausage as mouth.
A while back IKEA released a line of LEGO-compatible storage boxes. We’ve seen some creative builds based on them before, but this creation by Chi Hsin Wei (LEGO7) is a little sus. Sorry, I mean “fishy”. The white IKEA box makes for a perfect insulated container, transparent 1×1 brick makes realistic ice, and metallic silver tile and slopes add just the right sheen to the saury. The brick-built sign with pricing really elevates the build, giving everything context and letting you imagine visiting your favorite fish-monger for the catch of the day.
I don’t want to carp on about what a great build this is forever, so I suggest you go check out some other featured fishy builds.
The incredible brick artist LEGO7 has brought these two teenage fools to ABS with perfect articulation. The 90s proved itself as an era of animated comedic satire with the likes of many cartoons, though none poked their finger as hard as Beavis and Butthead. The shaping of each grungy hairpiece is instantly recognisable, as is their position on their much-loved couch. His remarkable ability to construct facial expressions is not lost here either. The use of a pink 1×1 round plate as Beavis’s gum line is so perfectly placed, that I cant help but hear the sniggering laugh coming from these two delinquents. The colour scheme used in their attire has been excellently chosen, showing their worn out AC/DC and Metallica T-shirts. Even the slight twist of each inner leg, brings these two socially inept teens to amazing brick built likeness. All they need now is a decrepit lounge room and some headbanging play features.
