[Custom CMF] Science & Nature

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

It all began with that Spider Man heart torso. As soon as I saw it, I thought it would be perfect for any spider lover.
So I made an arachnologist.
And since I had much fun building my first custom minifig series in the Historical forum, I decided to build an other serie, dedicated to scientists. To keep my arachnologist company.
Note : I hesitated between posting it in this forum or in the Minifig Customization one. I chose this one because this is sort of a MOC within the Collectable Minifigures Series theme, using only non-customised LEGO parts. Sorry if I made the wrong choice!

An entire custom Series made up of "[insert here]-ologists" archetypes? I LOVE IT!!! :thumbup: :grin: It'd be awesome to see any of these more particular ideas come to future Series of Lego's, and I haven't heard of so many of these professions before either! My favorite designs have to be the Primatologist, the Herpetologist (excellent reuse of Poe's Nathan Drake torso BTW), and the Mineralogist... :blush:

@Robert8 I may have an idea of whom that someone could be...:laugh: Thank you very much for your comment, I'm really glad you like them. 

@Digger of Bricks Thank you so much for your enthusiastic comment! I also learned quite a few things about earth science while creating them...
And now I know how to spell ichthyologist!

Well done.  Very interesting idea.  Nice use of existing parts in this series.

A well-composed figbarf is a beautiful thing, and boy oh boy is this a wonderful figbarf!

All of your choices are fantastic and such a novel idea to create a series of minifigs on this theme. I love it!

Traditionally this would've gone in the minifig customisation forum but I think it's just fine here. And now it's frontpaged as well!
