The REAL Elephant Knight

Postby Elephant Knight » Mon Oct 27, 2008 11:01 pm

After a conversation on Chat, (It had something to do with Josh eating my trunk or Shooting frozen peas out of my trunk or both) I decided I need a trunk. So I made this:

CHOMP, CHOMP! ;)

Looks good. It is difficult to make a brick-built solution at this scale. You did it!

Wow, good job on a minifig-scale brickbuilt elephant head!

Josh says you need to get hold of every Lego part ever catalogues on Bricklink! Better get started!
(Josh, you linked to the general Bricklink catalogue ;))

Hmm, I didn't know there were such things as Fabuland elephants. I think I might be able to trade. I'll PM you some details.

I thought it was kind of odd that Josh would link me to that. Though I don't think I will be able to buy every single Lego peice with out going bankrupt first!

Last I checked, Josh is the one who eats people.

Oops! :oops: I have no idea how that happened. I was looking at Fabuland elephants. Must be going senile...

Nice, little bro, nice.

I wonder, though, if a clip plate on the end of the trunk might not be a nice addition. I mean, it DOES function as a third hand, in a sense...

Hmmmmmmmmmmm, I never even though of doing that. I will have to give that a try. I also have another thing I want to try.

:shock: AGH! It's the elephant man! All insensitivity aside...(*ahem*) :P No, it looks great, EK. You should build a maxifig of yourself with a fully posable trunk!

God bless.
May the blessing of the Lord be upon you. <><

Nice, but I have a nit-pick! :o

Um, if you put a 1x1 cheese slope on the stud showing on the first plate on his trunk, and replace the second plate on his trunk with a 1x2 tile, that might look good. Gee, having trouble explaining this. Hope I got through to you.

I get what your saying, but a few promblems with that. First, there are no such things as light grey cheeses slopes, and I don't own any grey. Second, the cheese slope is 2/3rds of a brick high, not 1/3rd.
