Cool blacksmith. I actually checked Bricklink myself after I posted, and couldn't find it, but I didn't edit my post.

my favorite so far is the blacksmith(if you gave the aprentice dark gray gloves they could be guantlets and it wouldnt look so painfull) :shock:


If they were gauntlets, they would melt to his hands!*shudder*

Thanks again for all of your feedback, I really appreciate it !:D

I'll continue with the next character, a baker.
This guy obviously likes to taste everything he makes, before selling it. :wink:

Hi marakoeschtra,

you have the same idea like me. I've created a Minifig with a round plate 2 x 2 with rounded bottom, too.

Mine is no baker and I'm waiting for a red hair...

I will present it in the battle-contest. I like the presenting of Minifigs, please go on!

regards,
jens

These are all great! I've used the bundle before (as a water bucket) but the brown mini-fig hand on the other end is ingenious!

God Bless,

Nathan

I like the baker; it has one of my favorite heads. The "fat" pieces are also done well.

The first two are good but not "special"I really like the sheep in the third.The Blacksmith is great!!I`m` not sure what`s new about it but the look of it really draws me!Now the baker :? His belly looks kinda` odd. :?

Hmm, interesting technique. I've always had problems making 'larger' minifigs, and I think this can work. I'll have to play around with it some to see if it looks good to me up close, but I think it works for this guy at least.

Keep it up!

I just wonder....how does the "fatness" stay on the minifig? I can't see any form of attatchement.

This is a really nice little gallery! I'll be sure to keep tabs on it, like everybody else.

Actually, there isn't. :wink:
The 2x2 round plates are held between the minifig's hands.
For a permanent "fat" look, I would suggest using white rubber bands.

Aahhh. Okay, well, that detracts a bit from the fig, but overall, these are great. :D

Today's character is this young gooseherd, who tries to make his geese walk in a row.
They get easily destracted, though. :wink:

Again, great character. I think the head is very fitting, he looks preterbed, or annoyed with his dumb geeshes. Plus I've always liked that torso, so that's a plus.

Awesome geese! I like the gooseherd too, but the geese are the best.

I really like the torso used for the geeseherder. I wish I had it.

The Geese themselves are awesome too....the 1x1 slopes are SO THE BEST NEW THING LEGO HAS EVER MADE!

Your best one yet, if not for the fig, then for the geese. My favorites keep changing with every installment! :D
