Mickey Mouse is a pretty popular subject for LEGO artists, I myself took a crack at him almost 10 years ago. And I can tell you from first hand experience he’s not easy, especially at small scale. But thanks to some much needed parts, namely the 1x1 round black tile and 1x1 half round white tile, everyone’s favorite mouse has never looked better than this rendition by the great Bruce Lowell.
Mickey and Minnie have been an item since before I was born, so you know it's been a looooong time. And while they've never been officially married and don't live together (and according to Mrs BrickNerd it's "because they're smart") they're as classic a couple as you can get. This MOC by bricks.life.idea celebrates their love in a charming and magical way.
It would be totally unprecedented, possibly even controversial, but you know, I'd be totally cool seeing this lumbering down Main Street during a Disneyland parade. In fact, I'd even welcome it. Mickey needs his own mech, luckily Moko was around to make that happen.
Like I said a couple days ago, I was supposed to be at Disneyland last weekend, and I've been pouting about it for three days. But this outstanding MOC put a smile on my face. I love Mickey Mouse, especially a retro "pie eye" Mickey like this one from my friend Bill Volbrecht.
No trip to Disneyland is complete without a parade. Either one that you've camped out for on Main Street, or the one that you didn't plan on blocking your access to Tomorrowland. This Fantasia float by Brickbaron isn't actually based on a real float, but you wouldn't know it. I can totally see this cruising around the hub while some poor cast members bake in the sun and dance on the deck.
