I can’t resist anything to do with Lego; I have been a huge fan of since before I learned to talk, and some thirty odd years later, nothing has changed and my love for the small, coloured, humble Danish bricks has not flickered out. Over the years it has been very interesting to see how Lego has changed and grown, and indeed, how it has had to in order to remain competitive and interesting against the might of computer consoles, social media and the other toys which children desire every birthday and Christmas.
There are of course some people out there who take Lego’s versatility to a whole new level. Unofficially, fans of the small brick have built cars, furniture and even houses purely out of Lego, just to show how limitless its possibilities are of which no-one knew it had.
I however am not that adventurous; sadly not having the time nor the resources to build my own Taj Mahal. I did make the Bat Cave once, though. But the reason for this article is I wanted to show you just how customisable Lego minifigs can be, not just the bricks themselves. I came across this snippet online where various iconic film characters had been recreated in Lego, though ashamedly I have to admit I didn’t guess them all. Perhaps you can?
