Sterling Silver LEGO Minifig Snaps Together with Regular Bricks: Metalfig
May 6th, 2013
Are you a LEGO fanatic? Then, maybe you’d like to add another minifig to your collection. But this isn’t any ordinary minifig, no. It’s made from solid metal.
Designer Jonathan Brady has created this gorgeous LEGO-inspired minifig from .925 sterling silver. It’s not only a perfectly accurate model of a minifig, but all of the joints are posable, and it even is compatible with regular LEGO bricks. It’s actually made from eight pieces of cast solid medal, held together with tiny retaining rings. But this minifig isn’t just for you to stare at. If you’ve got the dough, you can actually order one for yourself through Jonathan’s recent Kickstarter campaign.
Though it’ll cost you. A full-size posable minifig in sterling silver will set you back $475(USD). But if that’s too rich for your blood, you can grab one that doesn’t move for $270, a 2/3rds scale version as a pendant for $190, or a pair of 1/3rd scale earrings for just $70. Though it you want one that actually moves, you’ll have to go with the $475 version.
If you’re really rolling in the dough, aim high and go for the solid 14 karat gold version for $4250, or the one-of-a-kind platinum version for a whopping $9,500.
Be sure not to step on any LEGOs as you run over to Kickstarter to get in on the project before it closes on May 28.
