Lego Despicable Me

Our son finally saw Despicable Me and seemed to really enjoy it, so for the heck of it I decided to make one of the little creatures. As you’ll see, my Lego skills are a tad basic. I could blame the selection of bricks yada yada but it’s just cos I is no Brunel.

It’s not too bad really. I dread to search the web to see the better versions others have done…


Dragon of Duplo


Beware the dragon of duplo,
He does not have a name.
His calling cards are blocky claws
His breath a plastic flame.

I need a few more Lego bricks and characters methinks. Even still, I could never compete with some of these gifted Lego creations.
