I was looking through Google at Cubeecraft characters – free, downloadable patterns that you can download. printout, fold and create – when I thought, “I wonder if I could create something like that in LEGO?”
The format seemed simple enough – 2×2 for the legs, 3×3 for the body, 6X4 for the head. Getting the right bits for the 2×1 arms was a fun little challenge, as was ensuring that the eyes were “right” on the head. Once I’d finished, I realised that having created it in grey, it should really be a trunk!
I have no idea if someone has already created one or not (google didn’t show up anything), but it was a fun little creation that should provide an interesting challenge in getting everything to fit together!
So, here is Nellie, my forgetful elephant.
