New year, new LEGO Ideas Features! And we kick 2024 off with an absolute banger! The latest project by LEGOtruman, who we’ve featured before on The Brick Post. He is the fan designer that submitted Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night‘ among many others.  With 14 projects reaching 10k supporters so far, I can’t believe he isn’t hired as a designer by LEGO yet.

The project consist of a tiger head sculpture on a decorated stand and a plaque with details about tigers and a brick built paw print as side builds.

I wish to build a Lego sculpture capturing this beautiful animal’s facial features with high details and realism!

Some of my favorite details are the round tiles representing the black/white stripes under the eyes; the 6 pink quarter tiles arranged to depict tiger’s nose shape; And the different sized and shaped fangs inside the tiger’s mouth, with the four bigger canines.

The tiger’s face is certainly impressive! And it’s very iconic appearance certainly comes across well. To me, parts are used to great effect to create the desired (round) shapes, proportions and other facial features from tigers. The project was only posted yesterday and I was immediately in awe when I was picking this week’s feature. No doubt seeing this as a LEGO set will impress even more.

The fan design consists of 787 pieces. Behind the head sculpture a backdrop of hexagons is created with floral decoration. It looks rather interesting and reading the reasoning behind it I loved it even more:

This is inspired by tattoo art combining animals with geometric elements and flowers. I think it adds life and beauty to the model, without distracting from the main model.

Another cool feature in this project is the movable jaws, so the mouth can open or close for a more (or less) aggresive expression.

We would like to wish LEGOtruman the best of luck in gaining the required 10k support. If you like the look of this idea and would like to give your support, please use the links below. Registration is free to LEGO Ideas and only takes a minute, so head over there now and do your part!
