Lego Discworld Models??

Postby Ponder Stibbons » Fri Jul 03, 2009 4:37 am

Does anyone know if there are any lego models made specifically to look like discworld characters apart from Death? :twisted: I was thinking of making a stop-motion movie of one of the books. :x

I don't think there are any specific ones, but people have certainly adapted existing ones as you can see here.

There's a stop-motion video here that someone has done. It gives an idea of what might be attempted - you might want to put it on mute though. :lol:

I'm pretty sure they've adapted existing ones - painted new faces etc.

They are absolutely brilliant Lego figures. I have a lot of Harry Potter, or rather my Daughter does & a lot more besides. She collects Lego. We play with it for hours. :lol: :lol:

My brother collects Star Wars Lego. He's got this remote controlled walker. It really freaks our cats out, when that thing suddenly starts walking! :lol:

I lvoe the Star Warsd sets. I have the UCS (Ultimate Collector Series) of the Death Star fro The Return of the Jedi which was over 3000 pieces and took about 12 hours to build! I also collect the magnet minifigs which they just released 4 more! I have them all at my desk at work.

A couple of the best sets I have are the Republic Attack Gunship and teh walking AT-AT which is just so cool!

I find that working on the sets gets very zen-like and I feel very relaxed when I walk away from doing them after a while.
A legal Feegle? How could there be such a thing?
Today I feel like I am soaring like a tortoise!

I get that feeling when I'm drawing. I forget absolutely everything around me.

Thanks tony, those models ar great.

[color=darkblue]I find the opp. if i'm working with lego, that if i spend too long on it i get frustrated and tired. Esp. when i hav to get the sets mde frst. When i do stuff i tend to want to just get down to it without fiddling with stuff beforehand for hours. :idea: [/color]
