LEGO® Minifigures 17: "Impromtu Santa"

It occurred to me to do a Lego Santa Claus for the purposes of creating Christmas cards, but I had a small problem: no Santa. With November half-gone, and with the lead times that professional printers seem to require, I wasn't sure about ordering one online (besides, how much real play value is there in a seasonal figure? I wasn't sure I actually wanted one...) if there was going to be any likelihood of selling cards at the Christmas Fair...

This paining is called "Impromptu Santa" because he's made from borrowed bits. Donations came from Yoda, a gnome, a pirate and an anonymous figure with red trousers. Oh, and I had to change the hands. I suppose that Santa could have been wearing green gloves, but I think he looks better with conventional (for a minifigure) yellow hands.

  1. He looks a little worried, maybe he hasn't wrapped everything yet!

  2. I didn't get Christmas cards made up, this year...

  3. Beth, sorry, didn't see your comment... he *does* look worried, doesn't he? Mind you, some of us haven't done all the requisite shopping yet, either.


Tell me what you think!
