Brick Pic of the Day: 18 August 16

Today is 18th August which would have been the birthday of the late Patrick Swayze who sadly died in 2009. A notable film icon, especially for his iconic roles in Ghost, Road House, Point Break and of course Dirty Dancing, the latter providing the inspiration for this gorgeous little MOC by AzureBrick aka Elspeth De Montes. Although this MOC is actually based on the West End musical version rather than the film, it does feature the most memorable moment from the film which has been parodied many times.

Elspeth said “I had to be a bit naughty with Patrick Swayze’s arms and add a little length to achieve the infamous lift (it was cut 3mm hose so not illegal). The minifigures could balance in that position without anything to hold them – it must have been the perfect lift 😉

Hello, I'm Séb, your friendly neighbourhood AFOL. As a child, Lego was always my favourite toy and now as an adult it appears nothing has changed. I emerged from my dark ages in 2011 after rediscovering my old sets in my parents' attic and haven't looked back since. I'm a big fan of the licensed themes particularly DC/Marvel Superheroes & Lord Of The Rings, though Creator Expert provides the more challenging & technical build I'm rather fond of.
