“BUILD!” Brickfilm, Minifig Customiser, POTC & MF4

Via Wired I saw the brickfilm ‘Build!’ created by David Pagano and Matt Witham that I’ll like to share.

Also thought the Wired interview with minifig customiser Kris Buchan was quite interesting.  I can’t imagine hacking my minifigs, or even painting on them (ha, I’m traditional that way), but I do enjoy seeing unique minifig customisations.  Kris shared some useful customisation tips during the interview if you are interested.

I also found more pics of the POTC sets taken during the launch event, including the front of  The London Escape set that I was curious about.  Added to my earlier post about POTC sets here

One more thing… hi-res pics of Collectible Minifig Series 4 are all over the web thanks to Grogall, and here is a link to Brickset’s 8804 set list if you want to start adding them to your want list.  Wonder which minfig will be the Cheerleader/Spartan/Elf of series 4?

More brickfilms are available from Pagano’s YouTube channel.

So Many New MOCs I Like..

I hate it when I get a backlog of stuff that I really want to post, and unfortunately with so many I really have no time to comment on what I like about each MOC individually.  As usual, do click on the links to their Flickr sites for more pics and close-ups.

Two are entries for the FBTB MOC Madness 2010 Tournament (I’ve been looking at the entries and there are some really cool ships), one vignette that has all 16 of the Series 2 Minifigs, a new stained glass SNOT technique (she has been developing the technique for a while), an eerie castle scene, a war scene, a modified TRU truck (I do like this size a lot more than the original), a steam punk and an abandoned museum.  Really quite a varied offering and I hope there’s something for everyone here. 🙂

Tattooing your minifigs

If you haven’t seen these 6 tattoo-ed minifigs, you should. They are pretty amazing considering they are created for a Pilot Extrafine pen ad campaign. Considering how small minifigs are and how intricate the tattoos are, I’m pretty convinced of the ‘extrafine’ bit. Problem is, I can’t imagine why I would need such a fine nibbed pen. Other than tattoo-ing a few minifigs of course, that is always a possibility…  Enjoy! 🙂
