Stitch together your very own lovable LEGO alien [Instructions]

Season 1 LEGO Masters US winner Tyler Clites is nothing if not persistent. A few years ago, he uploaded a LEGO model of everyone’s favourite havoc-wreaking extraterrestrial, Stitch, to the crowd-sourcing Ideas platform. We covered the first iteration way back in 2016, and it was subsequently re-worked twice before hitting the magical 10,000 supporters mark. Neither model was approved, but Tyler is not content to let this little blue alien be a footnote in LEGO Ideas history! He’s now released instructions over on his website for you to download and build your own. And the best part? They’re free! All you need to do is source the bricks.

And why not get creative with it? Tyler has shown that Stitch can be rebuilt in a variety of forms, so have a go at customising one of your own! My personal favourite is this Elvis Stitch-ley. Look at that immaculate quiff.

Stitch of the purple dolphins

There are lots of interesting techniques to see in this model! Logan W has built this impressive model of Stitch from the Lilo and Stitch franchise. Two dolphins have been cleverly incorporated into the design, representing the purple insides of Stitch’s ears. There are more aquatic parts used in the model such as a large clamshell for the lower jaw and flippers at the arms. Black knit caps portray the adorable pupils of the character with Admiral Thrawn’s hair used as the nose. The legs are formed of stumpy wings, featured in the Mario penguin costume. It’s a great build that perfectly captures Stitch’s cheeky personality and proportions.


Busting a Stitch

Stitch is an adorably cuddly alien lost on Earth, and as the weirdest blue teddy bear he’s rather difficult to translate into LEGO. But this bust by Joffre┬áZheng is fantastic, capturing his expressive eyebrows and ears with ease, while also employing a variety of shades of blue. Joffre says the internal structure consists mainly of Mixel ball joints, which help him achieve the odd angles of many of the pieces, like the quarter circles for the eyebrows.


Ohana means family, and you’ll want this adorable LEGO Stitch to be family

Tyler Clites is a master character sculptor, and he’s turned his hand to Stitch, the universe’s cutest little genetically-enhanced world destroyer from the beloved Disney film Lilo & Stitch. This LEGO Stitch stands 7 inches tall, and has 13 points of articulation so Stitch can be the expressive and lovable little monster he is, from wild terror to cuddly friend.


Tyler has submitted Stitch to LEGO Ideas, so maybe someday we’ll be able to buy one!
