Rupert the Bear-Knuckle Fighter 22 Oct 15

Rupert The Bear-Knuckle Fighter

Rupert the Bear

So it turns out that Rupert Bear is not really made for ‘bare-knuckle’ fighting. I mean look at those black eyes and bruised ears…..

Okay so I used the Panda head but as soon as I saw the new Trickster minifigure and those yellow tartan trousers, all I could think about was Rupert Bear!

I appreciate that not everyone will know Rupert Bear but he was a character created by an English artist called Mary Tourtel in 1920 originally. Rupert Bear was “a loveable little fellow who would gaily pass time picking flowers and playing with his chums” e.g.

The bare-knuckle champion’s custom torso is from Citizen Brick…wish I could have captured his awful back hair ha ha.

Round 5 Giant Jenga on the Lawn

UK General Election Alternative – The Lego Political Party Games

It’s General Election time here in the UK with Voting in a couple of weeks time.

After watching the Election Live debates, don’t you think that it would be more fun if we could pick a series of Challenges instead of debating??

Round 5. Ding. Ding. It’s Giant JENGA time on the lawn behind Number 10, that’s 10 Downing Street of course. Ed is meant to be holding the ladder for David but he’s looking a bit shifty! Natalie Bennett from the Green Party is very concerned about the Begonias looking rather dry!!

What do you mean you don’t know what Giant Jenga is????
