Continuing my Monofigure Habitats project, the next on show are The Dive Shop Owner, The Museum Thief and The Suit of Armour.
I love Sand Blue and this habitat was very much influenced by the divign helmet and shell which are available in this colour. The design was completed digitally first, before I started collecting all the pieces I needed to complete the build.
The Museum Thief was inspired by the Medium Lavender woolly hat, which seems to be the perfect headgear for a lot of LEGO City baddies. I then had to build the museum around him, crammed full of precious treasures to tempt hiim with.
The Flat Silver Suit of Armour was a very tricky monofigure to make a habitat for. There just aren’t many bricks which come in that colour, and although the Habitat was designed back in December 2020, it has taken me a long time to source 16 special pieces to build it – I’m taking about “Brick, Modified, 1x1x2 with Square Hole”, part 15444. The flat silver version only ever came in Benny’s Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP! (set 70816) with just one example in each!
