How to Make a Flexible Minifigure . extreme purists turn back NOW. .
these are instructions i made for the flexible fig contest! on how to make a flexible minifigure.
if you have never spent a solid 5 hours in your room with your lego, then you might not know that a standard minifigure can be divided into nine parts.
get a legoŽ rubber band, and put it through one arm hole of the torso.
it should look like this. now grab something long an thin, (a ninja sword is ideal)......
and use it to push the other end of the rubber band back into the torso....
so that it comes out the other arm hole.
if it doesn't look like this, then your a- um, moving on.....
now stick the sword through the bottom bit of rubber band to hold it in place and put the arms in the hole as shown.
remove the sword, and if it does look like this then you not the thing i was going to mention earlier.....
now to the hard part! the legs. in my opinion its always good to start by sliding the stem of the hand into the hole of the leg
now put it through the rubber band like this. (looks a bit brutal doesn't it?) there are a million things you can do to attach the other leg, but unfortunately, no easy way.
one way is like this. get a robot claw and put it in the hand....
place the other leg a stud in front of the back one, and make sure the end of the claw is holding the torso from twisting.
experiment, and you can come across heaps of cool poses!
this guy is featured in battling it out!
to attach his right leg i put it between the bottom right corner of the torso and the flat top side of the hand.
this guy is complex, but in my opinion not really worth his complexity. i wont go into the details, but you can have a look at the pictures to try and figure it out....
this one is my favourite! i got one bit of the rubber band around his leg, ant put the top of the hand in the bottom hole of his right leg for extra support. i then gently placed the bottom front right corner into the to hole of the leg, otherwise he twists to the left.
here you can see the hand.
for more cool poses, check out the timinater!'s en guarde!
and you dont have to use rubber bands either, without them you can build the stuff below
upward shooting skeleton sniper. try to figure out how i did it, its easy.
i did the same thing with this guy's right leg as i did with the previous one. the left leg is just sitting there.
and thats the lot!
phew! that was alot of typing, glad its over.... anyway, dont forget to join the flexible fig contest!
