Ladies and gentlemen! )  :sweet:
I'm proud to present you my latest minifig customs, inspired by the game Red Alert 3. )
Stricktly speaking I do not have the idea of following the game absolutely, it's more like a thread with all stereotypes that some people have about Soviet and modern Russia. )  :classic:

Here's a link to the game's main theme:

Armored War Bear. )  :classic:

Looking forward to your creations!

The Penguin AKA The Mythbuster:

Russians are militarists - BUSTED!

Bears are walking along the streets of Moscow (e.g.) - BUSTED!

Perestroika, Kalashnikov, Sharapova - BUSTED!


Nice conversion of polar bear into the "typical" one
Nice use of BA's AK-47
Sweet "sickle-and-hammer" round plate

It's a pity nnoone (eve Brickforge) do not supply military helmets in Khaki Green - those kepis do not match with Soviet Army's uniform.

Are those shields, as YG-49 calls them, painted on, or decaled? If painted, that is some excellent work!

The bear is a very nice custom, I must say. Is the minifigure holding an AK-47? If so, that is a very appropriate gun, because (If I'm not mistaken) I do believe the AK was originally a Soviet designed gun.

Are there any more coming?

Natasha is a perfect match, except her face looks a little less imposing and a little more shocked or sad.
The Russian soldier looks funny and how did you make that balalaika? It's great!

That made my day. :thumbup: Both of these two look good as well, one more than the other... And I take it that is Brickforge's take on an AK that she's holding? The tone of the painting is a little light, but wood is never the same color. :wink:

I love how the lighting makes the sand green color look darker on the troops. Did you make the sickle that the left statue is holding? I've never seen one of them before. If that is an official Lego piece, that is the absolute perfect use for it.
