Sufferin’ succotash! Timofey Tkachev has built two of of the Looney Tunes Rogues’ Gallery, in the form of Sylvester and Taz, capturing all the details of the loveable characters in LEGO form! In the building of these two characters, Timofey has used the wealth of brick types available to craft naturally posed likenesses of the two. The dynamically posed Taz captures the wild and constant movement of the character. I love the facial expression with wild eyes and ruffled hair all beautifully realized using well placed tiles and plates to craft the pose.
This is again replicated in Sylvester. I love how Timofey has crafted both expressions but the fluffy cheeks and wide eyes of the loveable cat are perfect here! Let’s hope I’m following up on this post soon with more of the Looney Tunes characters!
Space Jam was a staple film of any 90s childhood; which kid back in the day wouldn’t have enjoyed the movie? It had everything kids wanted – Michael Jordan, basketball, great music, and of course, the Looney Toons. Ian Hou brings his best 90s game to the world of LEGO bricks in this awesome brick-built Space Jam model.
“Look at our facilities! We’ve got weights! We’ve got hoops! We’ve got balls!” well, Hou’s build doesn’t have any weights, but certainly, there’s a brick-built orange basketball in Bugs Bunny’s hand, and this basketball court fashioned by way of the SNOT (studs not on top) technique features a basketball hoop element from the LEGO sports sets dating from the 2000s. Bugs bunny is also brick-built himself; his build utilizes slopes, tiles, bricks, and some technic elements along with hinge pieces granting his figure some articulation. As a 90s kid, this build brings absolute joy to my heart; seeing a happy and expertly fashioned brick-built bugs bunny shooting hoops in his basketball garb is a very welcome sight.
The Tasmanian Devil may be a whirling mess of destruction, but he’s still a lovable addition to the Looney Toons lineup. He’s also one of the few Looney Toons characters I’ve never before seen LEGO-ized. This caricature by Oliver Becker nicely fills in that gap, giving Taz his famous hands-raised stance and ravenous mouth.
