Hi all,

Today I set out to make a suitable buddy-icon, avatar, sig-fig, -or whatever you call it...
After some thinking and playing around, I came up with this;

I call it "LEGO²" becuause it is Lego made in... Lego!
The wooden duck was actually one of the first toys made by the Lego company, around the year 1930.

The construction is a little rough, but I thik it looks good in 100x100 pixels...  :laugh:

This is like seeing ancient LEGO!  :laugh:

Looks great in your second version and somehow, it reminds me of our Eurobricks Fellow, Etzel.  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

I love it!

Too bad it's not the perfect colors, but it's great nonetheless.

I love this. Taking a Lego toy (made in the wooden era) and make a similar thing out of modern Lego seems like a great idea for a contest!

Excellent brick-built version of the classic Lego duck Hoexbroe! Truly one of the most unique 'sig-fig' avatars in EB. Now Etzel is happy to have a fellow duck member around. :laugh:

Amazing Lego work from on of the very first Lego toys!

It all started in 1932 with wooden toys. The name 'Lego' was only be used 2 years later in 1934. From the beginning He (Ole Kirk Christiansen - 'Father' of Lego) alsways payed attention to the quality of his products. Which you can still tell from the Legos we can buy these days.

I don't think anyone saw this coming!  :laugh:  A very unique spin on the historical foundations of LEGO.
