The Christmas Lego Men of Kansas City by Skimbal

The Great Hall, Union Station

The Great Hall, Union Station

You may already remember Michael Curry, aka Skimbal on Thingiverse, from his epic Cathedral Play Set or his rubber band design challenge winning rubber band gear mechanism.  Well, you’re going to love his latest design – Christmas greeting themed oversized Lego people.  My favorite part is the slide show of his twenty Lego people touring Kansas City.

This year instead of sending Christmas Cards I decided to use my Makerbot to make something unique for my friends. And naturally the project took on a life of its own.

The final result was 20 Lego Men at 4x the normal size. Each inscribed with a holiday greeting.

Before dispatching them off to the world, I decided it would be nice to take all 20 brothers on a photographic tour of Kansas City.

Happy Holidays to all of the Thingiverse Community.
