Today’s LEGO Ideas feature is a little closer to my heart than others as it was made by a good friend. Mark, a.k.a Brick_beat, has produced and shared his very first Ideas project based on one of his favourite performers, Ed Sheeran!
Ed Sheeran is one of my favourite artists, so I wanted to create something I could keep on display. – Mark
Titled Ed Sheeran ➕➖➗✖️ Tour, the idea stemmed from needing a display option for the custom Ed Sheeran Minifigure by Minifigs.Me (10% discount link). Using several other elements from them including the many speakers dotted around the stage area, the whole build looks stunning.
If you’ve ever seen Ed Sheeran live, be it in person or via a video, you’ll know that he has an amazing technical setup, with foot pedals and loop machines. Mark has captured that in his build and to great effect. Showing a section of the stage and having it all tightly packed into the space given it really works well, your eye is ultimately drawn to the Ed Sheeran Minifigure first, then you realise the many details and album covers lined up along the back.
I’ve recreated his album artwork as mini designs and displaying them in order of release…➕✖️➗ and his current album ➖I also tried to highlight his classic look with his guitar, keyboard, double mic and loop pedal. – Mark
Each album cover is brick-built and represents Ed Sheeran‘s discography. Mark’s love of LEGO Mosaic making really shines through here with the album covers basically being small mosaics, finished off with tiles to create a smooth, image quality, look.
The items on stage help to flesh out the build and bring it to life further, including a brick-built Keyboard, Microphones, Speakers, Rigging, Spotlights, raised floor and Stage area. Using LEGO lattice plates and small grille elements as the stages floor is interesting, it works extremely well and adds so much to the build overall.
Being tightly and neatly kept within a small foot-print area, this ultimate Ed Sheeran display piece will fit comfortably on any shelf or slot into any display area.
I believe this would make a great LEGO set and gift for any Ed Sheeran fan or even Ed himself! – Mark
