Charlie Chaplin Vignette 24 Oct 15

Charlie Chaplin is a favourite of mine. Using this monochrome minifigure as a basis for Lego vingettes allows textures to be highlighted due to the minimal colour palate.  There is always an anticipation of “something is about to happen” in a Charlie Chaplin scene….

Cat is ambitiously eyeing up a jump onto the roof – always good to aim high.

Built for minifigures.com to showcase their lovely detailed Charlie Chaplin minifigure. They have some printing plans for the tiles and signs so there are a few blank parts at the moment (eg the sign above the shop door).

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????

Round 4. Ding. Ding. It’s Race Day…100m Drag Fabuland Scooter Race. Natalie Bennett (The Green Party) insists on her ‘Carbon-Free’ Alternative ride. Meanwhile, Farage gets distracted by the ‘Frisky Bird’ beside him.

The Lego General Election Games!

Round 2. ding ding. Scrabble at the Westminster Gentleman’s Club. It’s Ed Milliband, Labour Leader, first to play with David Cameron, Conservative Leader deep in thought.

(don’t take my political persuasions from this, perhaps Ed is better at Hungry Hippos in Round 3).
