Today we are talking figs of a different kind. Miniland is the scale and style that LEGO uses for their displays at their themeparks and are completely brick built.
Building one is easy and customizing is a lot of fun, so let’s get to it shall we..
You will need:
- 1 2×3 brick
- 3 2×3 plates
- 1 1×2 brick
- 2 1×2 technic bricks with 1 hole
- 2 1×2 inverted slopes
- 8 1×2 plates
- 2 2×2 plates
- 1 1×1 plate
- 2 1×1 round plates
- 2 1×2 jumpers
- 2 1×1 plate with clip
- 2 hinge plates
- 8 1×1 bricks
Take a 1×2 plate and stack 4 1×1 bricks on top of it, make 2.
Add a 1×2 inverted slope to the op of each leg, add a 2×3 plate across the top and 2 1×2 plates to the underside of the 2×3.
Add another 2×3 across the top, this is usually the belt.
Add a 2×3 brick, the 2 technic bricks on either end and a 1×2 brick in the middle of those 2.
Add the 1×1 round plates to the holes on the sides and place a jumper plate in the middle.
Attach the hinged plates to the round 1x1s and add the clips to the ends.
And now for the head.
1×1 plate with a jumper plate on top
2×2 plate with the “tube” part slotting into the stud on the jumper
2 1×2 plates at the back for the hair and 2 in the front for the face
cap it with a 2×2 plate
just attach the 1×1 plate at the bottom of the head to the jumper stud on the body and you are done!
So this is the basic construction of a miniland fig, you can chop and change around parts to build your own characters.
