80's Lego

This is a personal project based on one of my favourite childhood toys, and now my sons favourite as well, Lego. I love the iconic nature of the mini figure it has endured decades and is now a design icon in its own right. I grew up in the 80's and played with lego mostly in the 80's so i decided it would be fun to produce 80 mini figures based on my favourite 80's icons.

These are just a few.

  1. these are fantastic - I can understand you being nervous about selling them as Lego are very litigious but I would kill (well, not really) for a set of the Judge Dredd lego prints - I did one myself that was bladerunner inspired - I don't have your talent but I was pleased enough with it :) they are great fun.
