Why Are Some Minifigs So Got Dang Expensive?

Posted by Octodad , Aug 20 2014 · 19 views

I know why, don't tell me. They come in more expensive sets, are more sought after, etc. It's a rhetorical question as I lament that a Luna Lovegood minifigure is a good $30 on Bricklink.

1000 supporters on the Fossil Museum!

Posted by Octodad , Aug 14 2014 · 97 views

Over on LEGO Ideas, my Fossil Museum project has hit over 1000 supporters in a mere week! At this rate of support, I could hit 10,000 in nine more weeks! In celebration, I did something I'd been meaning to do for a while: draw up a rough design for the torso print for the Paleontologist.

The eagle-eyed among you probably notice the similarity between this design and my earlier self-minifigure. I freely admit to living my dream through this minifigure. If LDD had the capabilities, I also would have made the arms two-tone so she could avoid wearing long sleeves with shorts, which is a weird thing. She also has a Velociraptor claw around her neck. It's very rough because I am not the best artist, but it gets the idea across.

Thank you to all my supporters!


Guardians of the Galaxy

just went to see it today. it was a fun, entertaining movie with some nice emotion to it. I had my quibbles (as always) but I was able to put them aside to enjoy the movie. I definitely recommend it for those who haven't seen it.


Fossil Museum Update #1: Updated Spinosaurus

A concerned commenter on LEGO Ideas said they couldn't help but question the scale of the dinosaurs. To help people better gauge the scale, I made this size chart. The sizes aren't perfect, but Deinonychus, Stegosaurus, and Apatosaurus all fall reasonably close to accurate scale to a minifigure. Spinosaurus, however, was small enough compared to what it should be that I felt the need to fix it.

Posted Image
Along with fixing the scale to a minifigure, this build also fixes the wonky legs and sparse spine of the original. The skull is still an annoyance, but there is just no way to fix that lower jaw.

Thank you, everyone who has supported my project so far! If you haven't yet and want to, it's over here.

Honestly, you can make this sound like some kind of crusade for justice all you want (I'm going to hope that some of how you worded it is just meant as hyperbole to make a point, though?), but it just comes across to me as being anti-fun and anti-imagination.


There's a time and a place for joke entries to place high in a contest (actually no there really isn't but w/e), but the first site-wide BZP contest is certainly not one of those times.


The first entry offended my eyes.


Well, this was probably in the bottom 3 comics I've read in my life. Didn't make much sense, and some things were hard to read because of the coloring and font style.
