It’s party time! The humble minifigure has been around for 40 years and Brick Fanatics is celebrating by presenting each character from Series 18 in a bespoke vignette
For 40 years, LEGO sets have been brought to life by the little characters known as minifigures. To celebrate that anniversary, the LEGO Group has released a special series of minifigures who are ready to party. [geot exclude_country=”United States”]Series 18[/geot][geot country=”United States”]Series 18[/geot] has more of the popular fancy dress characters than any wave before it, with the elusive classic Police Officer thrown in as a chase minifigure.
The latest Brick Fanatics build series presents a new vignette each day, one for each of the 17 new minifigures.
Birthday Cake Guy
I love the idea of Cake Suit Guy bursting out of a cake in the most awkward of places. I figured somewhere he really wouldn’t want to be is an old grungy warehouse filled with gangsters after a successful heist, but that is exactly what’s happened here.
This build actually came together a lot quicker than I thought. The 1×2 bricks with brick pattern really help to create a nice background without too much fuss and I’m really happy with the addition of the light bluish grey panels at the top to add height and detail.
I tried to include enough accessories and detail in the background to give the impression of an everyday kitchen, there’s even a 2×1 trans-blue tile in the sink, which just adds that final bit a detail. The only thing missing is a black half circle 1×1 tile for the mouse’s hole – sadly the LEGO Group don’t make that part in that colour yet so I had to make do with a regular 1×1 tile instead.
