I made these back in September, and sort of rushed to finish them so I could bring them to the LEGO Fan Weekend in Skærbæk, Denmark. Unfortunately, the quality has somewhat suffered if you ask me :tongue:. I'm sort of happy with some of them though...
And of course, the reason I haven't posted them online yet, is that I've been extremely busy since then... But now, finally, here they are!

Wow! Very creative.
You just gave me an idea how I can display my collection of minifigures, especially those minifigures that doesn't fit in the city theme.

I love them, just like the rest of your minifig vigs. That's an excellent way to display the CMFs and you're very creative.

You are really good at these little vignettes, it's amazing how much detail you can put in that small of space! Are you done with Series 8 yet? Already planning Series 9 and 10 (from the leaked pics)?

Nice work! :thumbup:

Love the swimmer girl's one especially, great use for the pistols! :thumbup: Nice way to display your CMFs... I'd probably try it but I'm not one to keep things built for long... :laugh:
Nice how they can all fit on top of each other too, great job!

Whoah, slow down! It's going too fast :sing:. No, I'm not done with series 8 yet, haven't even started yet, in fact... LEGO are making these too fast for me!!! :tongue:. Hehe, but thanks, I'm having fun trying to cram in as many details as I can :laugh:

Thanks :sweet:. I'm quite pleased with the use of the pistols :grin:. Making them fit together like a shelf was the whole point when I started out with series 1, which is why they all have a standardized size :wink:. But that standard is giving me headaches sometimes :wacko:

Thank you, and I'm not sure how I keep going myself, it has become quite the never-ending project :tongue:

What I always wonder when thinking of your CMF vigs (and that is quite often) is if you keep all these vigs assembled!? I would love to do something like that, but the part count keeps blowing my mind.

This is cool!  My wife recently told me that I need to find a better way to display my minifigs and this is so far the best setup I've seen to date.  Now I need to come up with some ideas of my own :)

These are so awesome! They all look so nice, but my favorite might have to be the Swimmer's vig. And wow, those vigs look even better altogether! You've got quite a lot of them. Great job and I look forward to seeing these for future series! :thumbup:

Love seeing the new vignettes! The only one I have a slight nitpick is the dark knight, his castle doesn't look very dark. Other than that they all look very fitting to the fig and very well detailed :classic:

It's impressive that you keep them all built!  I don't think there's anyway I could do that!
