A couple of months ago, The Rambling Brick website announced a competition to win Series 19 Minifigures, by building a Minifigure Habitat to a template by Handoko Setyawan posted on Flickr in 2016. While I didn’t enter the competition, I did notice some habitats built by Steve Guinness and others on Instagram, and really liked the concept of these little interlocking stackable vignettes based around an 8×8 plate.
These are the pieces you will need to build a basic habitat:
- One 8×8 plate
- 24 1×4 bricks (I’ve shown them in two colours here so it’s easy to see how they are placed in the build)
- 8 1×3 bricks
- 4 1×2 bricks
- 2 1×6 tiles
- 1 1×2 plate
- 2 1×1 plates
This video shows you how to put them to gether to form a basic habitat, which you can then decorate to suit the minifigure at hand.
