A quirky little creation that I made on a whim, I present to you my LEGO Cow!
About this creation
“Fight the power!”
A side shot of da Cow. I couldn’t make a satisfactory design that would allow him to stand up, so I made him sitting on his rear in an Indian-like position. I think it gives him a big (a.k.a .fat) personality, don’t you?
Mr. Cow expounding on the benefits of a steak-less diet.
“The horror! The horror!”
“Now THIS is REAL literature!”
BAM! “Talk to the hoof!”
Cow’s head in the grasp of the evil cook. Cow’s head was tricky to make, but I am very pleased with it.
“Hmmm...Is something hissing or am I hearing things?”
“Think I’m so funny, do they!? Well, let’s seem ‘em laugh at me now! Mwahahaha!”
The idea for the Cow (how original, I know) came to me when I was randomly surfing around the internet and found to my surprise very few custom LEGO cows. I decided I was going to rectify that by making one, but with a catch: I wanted him to look like a “Far Side” cow, meaning he would have to be fat, geeky, and have an attitude. Working those qualities into so small of a creation was a real challenge for me, but I am very happy with the result.
P.S. Kudos to my corn snake Checkers for letting me incorporate him into my creation.
