Behold my arts & crafts capabilities! With a kitchen knife and some sandpaper, I made a custom Voort “Piggy” saBinring LEGO mini-figure just for kicks and giggles!
How did this come about? Well let me share the tale!
On Jan. 1, LEGO released a new set for Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing. It was a bit smaller and a bit cheaper than usual, and seeing as how I’m on a real LEGO kick these days, I snagged me a copy. But I already have a mini-figure of Luke in his orange pilot jumpsuit; I don’t need another one. So I got it in my head to make a custom mini-figure of my favorite Wraith Squadron character, Piggy!
I knew there existed a Gamorrean Guard mini-figure. What I didn’t realize was that this thing was an entire body armor piece. I just wanted the head. So I got a sharp knife and some sandpaper and simply…cut off all the extra body and shoulder armor. I whittled it down to just the head and put it on top of the Luke jumpsuit body. And just my luck, the big Gamorrean head just barely fits into the new X-Wing cockpit.
So this isn’t exactly some marvel of engineering. I just did a little work and can now pat myself on the back for a custom LEGO character.
