Moodland-Scale Figs: A How-To!
By request, here is a step-by-step post to show you how to build your own Moodland-scale figure! I hope no one thinks I'm being egotistical by naming a scale of figure after myself. These figures started out as a desire to build action-figure-scale characters out of Lego. They're really just bigger, more-articulated versions of Lego's Miniland-scale figs (hence the play-on-words name). So, for our purposes here, I decided to build a neutral colored figure with no certain stand-out details. When you build your own figs, a big part of their "look" will be coloring and certain details, depending on who or what you're building. Hopefully, this helps those of you interested in building your own "Moodland-Scale" figs! If you have any questions, please drop me a line:)
About this creation

Here are the parts you'll need: 114 total for this figure.


Legs


Arms


Torso


Head


And...Begin!




































This is the piece i normally use for noses, but you can use a hinge plate or no nose like miniland figs.






And you're finished!






As you can see, this figure design is VERY flexible.


EXTRA INSTRUCTIONS: How to build a Moodland-Scale lightsaber (and so i can post this in SW groups)! Lego purists might want to look away for this one, since I have to cut a 4L bar in half to fill the inside of the blade properly.

Clever, that's a lot of poseability at that scale.

That's a great tutorial, thanks for sharing! Great job! :-)) If you don't want to cut the lightsaber blades you can use a 10L rigid 3mm hose instead: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=75c10.

Perfect. This will be a challenge for amateurs that are just causal persons/people, but will be a cake walk for professionals that are great LEGO collectors. But it will be somewhere in between for those who are amateurs but great LEGO collectors, and for those who are professionals but casual LEGO buyers. Hm...

Cool! I'll try to build one, but torso looks a bit... fat. Don't get me wrong whole fig is awesome, and when I'll build it I'll try to fix it for you.

Just gotta get me a bunch of those t-pieces and I can build me some MOODLAND figs! Thanks for sharing this tutorial. The techniques you provided will also be useful in other builds such as mechs and whatnot. Thanks buddy!

Moodswim this is awesome! However those t-bars i have about 2 of them. Is there an alternative part I could use? I might make some SF characters using your design, and I will credit in every post for the design.

BTW I made a pum MOC. It's funny when you read it. "White Accent Pieces" is the name. I have heard that term before, so, pun MOC! Hehe.

Quoting E.K.O . Very nice! I like the poseability in your Moodland figs. Btw, didn't Brickdoctor come up with the word "Moodland"?
Thanks! Sort of; he said that he would start calling my figs "Mood Scale". I thought it would be funnier (and a play-on-words) to call them "Moodland Scale".
