Schroeder loves Beethoven

Sometimes one doesn’t need a proliferation of parts to make something fun and recognizable as Michael Jasper proves with this clever Peanuts scene. Building small can be tricky, especially when trying to represent characters as iconic as these, but Jasper does an admirable job by employing a variety of clever part combinations.

The Schroeder minifig features his classic striped shirt, and his blonde hair is perfectly coiffed. His beloved tiny piano is a simple but effective little build that pairs nicely with the bust of Beethoven. Snoopy is on hand with his best buddy, the enigmatic Woodstock (represented here with just five parts). The Snoopy build deserves closer inspection with its inspired use of a white saucepan to create the body, and the skeleton legs work great as dog paws. A small but mighty build!

Good grief Snoopy! Does it begin with A Dark and Stormy Night?

This has got to be one of the most adorable builds of the gang from Peanuts that we’ve seen. Builder Genecyst does an amazing job with this little scene showcasing Snoopy, Woodstock, Charlie Brown and the always opinionated Lucy van Pelt.

However, while it all looks great, there’s something I feel is somehow amiss which I just can’t see. I’m pretty sure it’s not just my observation, but I’ll still take the perception that this is one fine build that deserves looking at.

Snoopy and Woodstock at rest

This brilliant little LEGO recreation of Snoopy and Woodstock was apparently a commissioned model. I really hope _BrickBro_ didn’t get paid peanuts for it. This is a deceptively simple build, and I predict it took a long time to get it this perfect. The use of old-style minifig capes for Snoopy’s ears is inspired, and the version of Woodstock captures the scruffy bird’s character in a handful of tiny yellow pieces. This would make a lovely desk ornament for any Charles Schultz fan.
