A Fistful of LEGO - Building challenge

Postby Archduke » Mon Jun 12, 2017 5:14 pm

My challenge to you is to build something out of only the 15 parts pictured below. You can use less that 14, but you cannot use more, and you cannot use a part more than once. (However, since there are 3 yellow 1x1's pictured you can use 3 in your build, but you can't use 4, or use any pieces of different colors in their place.)
I will re-create the top 5 builds in a really cool way, (you'll see... :mystery: )

So what are you waiting for? Get Building!

(Contest runs for 2 weeks (to June 26) or until 10 builds are submitted- I might change this if a lot of people are interested.)
And have fun!...

I used to do microscale space only, I never used to do minifigure scale. So, after years of practice, microscale is one of my specialties. thx for the commendation.  :D

Ok so I didn't know if you did this intentionally but the title is "A Fistful of Lego" and I instantly thought of the Clint Eastwood movie, A Fistful of Dollars. So I thought, lets recreate some of clint's epic western moments using those bricks!

These models aren't very great but aw well.

"My Mule don't like people laughin" :scene from A Fistful of dollars.

Image

"The best standoff in movie history" :scene from TGTB&TU(The Good The Bad & The Ugly)

Image

"You see, in this world there's two kinds of people, my friend - those with loaded guns, and those who dig. You dig." (One of the best movie quotes EVER):another scene from TGTB&TU.

Image

If you haven't watched any of the dollars trilogy movies (A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More and The Good The Bad and The Ugly) you must see them as soon as possible! You do not know what you are missing out on!
