A Look At LEGO…. Fabuland

According to the My Sets section of Brickset, I own 1700 minifigures and of all those minifigures only one is an elusive resident of Fabuland. The Fabuland minfigures are like no other, too big to be a standard LEGO® minifigure and too small to be a Duplo figure. They are unmistakably LEGO but remain one of the most unique range of characters to appear in the world of LEGO. So we thought it would be fun to take A Look At LEGO…. Fabuland! Before the cross-product success of Bionicle, Ninjago, Legends of Chima and NEXO KNIGHTS, The LEGO...

The arrival of the new theme was first teased during Comic Con in a LEGO Prince of Persia display, by a hidden Captain Jack Sparrow Minifigure. The first wave of sets...

The Story Behind The PlayStation Minifigure Collection

Back in 2015 I was approached by the Official PlayStation Magazine asking if I could help with a feature they were planning. They wanted to know if I could direct them to someone who could create a range of custom minifigures based on some of gaming’s biggest icons.

Then around this time last year, the brand new issue of Official PlayStation Magazine hit newsstands, and within its...
