Mini Mi

August 21, 2013

There’s a new App in town (well tecnhically on itunes) called Mini Mi that allows you to build your very own minifig avatar — also known as a sigfig.

Here’s the brief, but to the point press release:

What is Mini Mi?

Mini Mi is a little app that lets users create and share their own custom Minifig likeness.

Tap, double tap, swipe and shake to your hearts content as there is much to discover. In fact, at last count we calculated 3,805,928,543,217,530,000,000 (three sextillion, eight hundred five quintillion, nine hundred twenty-eight quadrillion, five hundred forty-three trillion, two hundred seventeen billion, five hundred thirty million) with a few other surprises to come post launch!

Mix and match different unique elements. Choose different colors and backgrounds. Save your favorites, or give it a shake to see what randomly comes up.

Who will you create today?

I’ve played with the app and its really fun. I especially like the random feature. πŸ˜€

Sadly I can’t get it on my phone because I have android. 😦 They plan to create it for android in the future, but its only for itunes at the moment.

Its free, so there’s no reason not to get it!

LEGO Girl Head 1

Creating a realistic LEGO face is one of the harder aspects of building sculpture. When I was working at LEGOLAND this was unfortunately one type of sculpture that I didn’t get a chance to do much of. So last week I decided to brush up on my skills by creating this.

The model took me about 6-8 hours. I honestly don’t know the exact time. Making the face have a good expression and “life” is the trickiest part. And of course working in the size of 6″ also was a fun challenge. I used a lot of jumpers to get the face right and used almost all of my 1×1 plates to design the hair.

LEGO Girl Head 4

She will most likely appear in an upcoming book or two. The model is a stylized sculpture of my online avatar Model Gal. πŸ™‚

Greetings from New York

September 22, 2008

Hi all, as I said, I’ve been really busy working on a project. I’ll post images of the project, and the event later, but for now I’ll give you a teaser.

You can check out the full details of the event by clicking on the image.

Its my first time to New York and I really like this city. I got to my hotel in the early evening, so I had time to do some sightseeing. Not only did I visit Time Square (not as big as it looks) but I also went to the Empire State Building and Grand Central Station. I also tried something I’ve never done on my trips, I took my Minifig avatar along with me and took pictures of it at different locations. I was inspired by the Flickr group Legos in real life.

The view from up here is really great!

I look forward to tomorrow’s event. And for those of you that live in the New York area, come on by the American Museum of Natural History from 4-8pm to check all the festivities out! πŸ˜‰
