When Lucasfilm was acquired by Disney, Princess Leia joined the ranks of not-so-helpless royalty who are known to encounter the occasional cute and furry critter in the woods. In this scene by Miro Dudas Leia meets the adorable Ewok Wicket, played by Warwick Davis who landed this promotion from extra Ewok when Kenny Baker fell ill. The figure of Leia is expertly crafted, particularly her hat, which has a distinct shape. The use of BrickHeadz eye tiles for Wicket is the perfect contrast to Leia’s plain brown eyes made from sideways facing 1×1 round plates. I suspect that Leia is as tempted to pinch those furry little cheeks as I am.
And I quote, “Stink. Stank. Stunk!” Dr. Seuss’s vile villain who stole Christmas, and his trusty dog, Max, come to us in LEGO form! This awful (lovely) model of Mr. Grinch by Miro Dudas is simply terrible (awesome)! In seriousness, this is one of my most favorite builds in recent history. Miro’s wonderfully expressive recreation is remarkably close to the latest version of the character in the new 2018 movie, The Grinch.
