Since it is my day of I had time to do another one.

Twoflower the Tourist


The original owner of the Luggage.
The power of someone pointing a camera at you is magic, it leaves him completely unharmed in the most dangerous situations.
He believes that everyone is nice and survived being guided by Rincwind, a brawl in the Broken Drum, a meeting with the thieves guild and dragons.

I did some minor custom work; just a sticker with the I love A-M written on it. I found that trick somewhere on brickshelf, so thanks to whoever came up with it first.

Great!
Just one minor quibble: Rincewind doesn't have a beard.
But I love the I Heart A-M hat.
Keep the Pratchett minifigs coming!
When people are force to look at a glass of water that is exactly half-full, some will say
that is is half-full and some say it is half-empty.
However, the world is controlled by the people who say
"Hey! My glass had more in it. And it was a different glass! Who's pinching my beer?!?!"  
Any one who could create Doctor Who, Monty Python, and is also the home of Terry Pratchett must be cool.

I think Rincewind's beard is supposed to be scraggly - much like the printed beard on that minifig head - I would lose the beard neckpiece.

Twoflower and the luggage look the part - the clips for feet is simple but effective!

Another little quibble: In your description, the brawl brakes out in the Broken Drum. Mended Comes after.

There has been some debate already about this. But I took the cover art of Josh Kirby as an example. If you look at The Light Fantastic (paperback) you clearly see a long, grey beard. Paul Kidby presents him as younger and with a scrappy beard.
So there's room for two and pick your favourite.  :laugh:

I stand corrected, Broken Drum it is.  :thumbup:

Kidby's art is "canon" according to Sir Terry his-self. Those are the ones I am working from in my (so far not as successful as I hoped) attempts at minifig creation.

If there was no such thing as science; you'd be right.

Rincewind without the beard.
This is more according to Kidby's artwork.
The sad expression on his face is spot on. The printed beard could be a bit more scraggy but is the best Lego has to offer.
