A couple of months back, I was contacted by the PR company for LEGO Batman 2 and asked if I could create superhero versions of UK celebrities using only official LEGO parts to promote the launch of the game on June 22nd. Of course, I said I’d be thrilled to. The celebs I heard back from, the PR company and Warner Bros. were all thrilled with the results. Here are most of the mini-figures that I made.
Jonathan Ross and Jane Goldman
Peter was so happy with his villainous mini-figure that he made it his Twitter icon and kindly @ mentioned me too.
Ant & Dec
Chris Moyles & the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Team
I also built their recording studio.
KISS FM Radio Breakfast Team
This is Melvin, Charlie and Rickie. In the end the radio studio set was sent to these guys instead and they seemed really happy with it even going as far to pose as their LEGO selves:
From L-R: Carol Vorderman, Denise Welch, Janet Street-Porter and Andrea McLean. I never thought I’d be paid to make a LEGO Superhero Janet Street-Porter.
It was a lot of fun to make these and come up with different Superhero costumes without using any Batman, Superman or Marvel LEGO. Needless to say I’m nearly out of tiny capes.
