(Ten years ago / In 1972), a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade  to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire... The A-Team.

Another childhood throwback. With the new film coming out soon, I could not resist. You gotta love the A-Team. I know people have done LEGO versions before, but here's my take on it. Let me know what you think. Thanks for looking.  :thumbup: And I hope I have the right forum for this??

Great resemblance. I really like B-A's hairdo.  :grin:
Are all of these original minifig parts (I ask because I don't recognize the middle two torsos)?

Ahhh, of course, I only everuse 100% official LEGO parts, unless a competition requires otherwise.

The Murdock one is Mutts from Indiana Jones, and B.A's is also from Indy, its Mola Ram's.

Thanks for the feedback guys, glad you like. :thumbup:

Ha ha, I was hoping someone would think that, I wonder what they could make? Maybe a 24 seater plane or a 67 Chevy?  :tongue:

Hello again!

It looks like you have been quite busy! :classic: Another great set of easily recognizable minifigures! The figures are excellent, but also the typical accessoires which you have added! :classic:

Cheers,

Everybody forgets that Amy was a member of the A-Team too...

... with good reason.

Nice minifigs! Hanibal's head is especially nice a fit.

So was Tawnia and Frankie.  

And, you need B.A.'s van with Faceman's Corvette, to have a more complete team.

Perfect. Mr. T could use more of a scowl, but I'm not sure if you can find a face like that.
Like others said, the hair is really simple but works well.
I really like the torsos as well, I'm surprised Mola Ram's fits.

All your figs are great, except Mr. T, the face and hair and even clothes are just to hard to reproduce into a minifig useing only TLC parts.  Thoufh you did a pretty darn good jb with what you were given, nice work.

Thanks for the comment. Contrary to popular belief B.A. does smile, and did not always look moody, I thought the head was a pretty close choice, and am really happy with the torso too. :thumbup:

B.A. had possibly the most terrifying smile ever seen on television. Especially in the way it formed so slowly, like he had to send each electric pulse to his mouth muscles separately because they sure as hell didn't know the way themselves.

Now you should make the A-Team van to make it complete.
