  1. I love these; some very happy memories of building these the first time around, back in the day...
  2. 2000AD Lego builds

    A few more recent 2000AD figures - none of them perfect but all a lot of fun to do. None of these are really planned out, just built as I go with input from the boys and using whatever bricks are to hand. I realise that 2000AD is definitely a niche interest but having seen at least some Rogue Trooper and Dredd Lego builds on here I figure there might be some interest here. Maybe. Judge Dredd “Gaze into what, creep?” Slaine Strontium Dog: Johnny Alpha & Wulf Sternhammer (complete with his Happy Stick and Gronk-fur coat) “Who the hell’s gonna mess with us?”
  3. 2000AD Lego builds

    One of the boys was given a Brickheadz figure for his birthday recently and it got me thinking... I had a quick go at Mean Machine a couple of days later then turned my attention to Rogue Trooper. Next up was Kano from the Future War classic Bad Company (Pete Milligan, Brett Ewins and Jim McCarthy). I've also done Judge Fear and Slaine so far; I've got a few more to try and get done as and when the boys let me have the bricks I need - given an infinite supply of Lego I'd do these all day long. Of all the 2000AD-related Lego things I've done these are definitely among the most enjoyable. Probably my favourite 2000AD Lego thing so far...
  4. 2000AD Lego builds

    Hey all, My two sons (seven and eight) are accumulating insane amounts of Lego these days and now and again they agree to share with me… Anything I get to build is just from whatever bricks are lying around; a fun challenge but involves some compromises between what I want to do and what I’m able to achieve with what we have. Nothing I’ve made has been perfect but we all have fun with these, which is what really counts. Anyway, I’ve focused on builds relating to the classic UK comic 2000AD, which I’ve read since I was a kid. Lego is a great way to introduce the characters and stories involved and to the boys and we sit and build and tell stories along the way. I’m definitely not a hard-core builder; this is first and foremost a fun activity and some of the things I do are extremely simple and stupid (and these are often the most satisfying). I’ll share a few things we’ve made over the past four years - starting with my take on Mick McMahon’s classic Pat Wagon design from the Judge Dredd Block Mania story… The original inspiration:
  5. Hey all, New arrival here but a long, long-time Lego fan, now with two young kids with ever-increasing amounts of Lego which they graciously share with me. Sometimes. :) I'm from the UK but have been based in Norway for some time now... My main interest, Lego-wise, is building stuff related to the long-running UK comic 2000AD (home of Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper, etc.). I started some very simple builds a few years ago (when we had very limited amounts of Lego) mainly as a way of introducing some great characters and stories I've loved since I was a kid. These have progressed a bit since they started amassing dangerous amounts of bricks, and it's a lot of fun to chat about this stuff as we build... I can share some pics in the Sci-Fi section if anyone's interested.
