Tardis and K-9

February 6, 2013

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m prepping for my two upcoming conventions — one a Comic Con, one a LEGO Con.

One of my goals for each new convention that I go to is to have new products to sell. And because the first convention is a Comic Con, I wanted more iconic Pop Culture products. So I created these two new models for Doctor Who fans.

Now for the LEGO purists out there — yes, both of these are cheated. I can see you wincing from here, but frankly I don’t care. How do you think new LEGO parts are made? You have to “break” the mold as it were.

And the main reason I’ve “cheated” is because it was the best way to make the models the desired size of about an inch and to look as close to the original at that size.

Oh, and for those of you that don’t know what cheating means it is when you cut or alter your bricks or just glue parts on where they other wise could not connect.

For both of these models I’ve done both.

And if you’re wondering most of my online and in person customers don’t care either. 😉

I think they are simply adorable (even if I do say so my self 😀 ) and if you are interested in either model you can find them at my Folded Fancy Creations Etsy Shop.

Doctor Who’s K-9 — Bladewood Style

February 27, 2010

Louise Dade creator of Tranquility Base Comic has created a trio of K-9 models in a variety of colors — classic Doctor Who gray, Classic Space blue, and Space Police white.

Simple in design yet properly proportioned considering the Minifig scale. I can just see them rolling along behind the Doctor. 😀
