Minidolls Legoman 05/18/2020 (Mon) 02:59:00 No.474
Minidolls! First released in 2012, they were exclusively used in the "girl" lines until The Lego Movie 2, after which time they immediately went back to being exclusively used in the girl lines. Minidolls have fewer points of articulation than minifigs and are thus more challenging to customize. Let's see your custom minidolls!
Here are a few that I've made

>Buy Friends sets for the amazing choice of parts and buildings compared to City, the white with purple/pink as aesthetic is also a nice choice >Scalp the mini dolls, use the hair and the dozen Parker clones' heads (from buying multiple Hidden Side sets) to make a bigger variety of LEGO minifig girls >Use the constant addition of little animals as vermin army units for BrikWars Am I the bad guy?

>>482 Nah, Friends is a great line for parting out even if you have no interest in minidolls OR minifigs. This remains one of my best scores. $75 for everything on the table. Practically brand-new, assembled and barely touched. They even threw in all the extra pieces that came in the sets.
>>483 Nice haul, anything you're planning to build with it?
>>484 Been slowly working on this for the last couple years
>>485 Kowloon?
>>485 Very nice clusterfuck. Would like more pictures. :)

My only problem with minidolls is how limited customisation is with them as there's only a small handful of torsos and legs and you can't switch out the arms or hands. The best way to increase the range would be a minidoll CMF line, although a more action oriented minidoll line would be great. >>485 Every time I see these they grow even higher. I don't even know if I want to see the finished stacks because they'll be massive behemoths

>>486 Not exactly, but that's an inspiration >>487 I have a few more but they're a little out of date and I've been intentionally not shooting the really weird stacks to keep them a surprise >>488 >Every time I see these they grow even higher. I don't even know if I want to see the finished stacks because they'll be massive behemoths Right now I have five drawers full of them, plus some stacked on top of the drawers

>>495 >>487 Forgot you can post batches of images. Here's another shot of the city and some individual stacks. I made these using a 16x16 template as the standard, with a few studs along the tops of the walls to anchor them to the next level, i.e. the way the Creator Expert building floors attach to each other. A few stacks have a footprint larger than 16x16 but most stick to that size. These are for the same setting as the hoverklocki that I occasionally post.
>>497 Obscenely detailed, especially with the piping along the walls everywhere. This stuff is just too good, you're harming my confidence.
>>497 This looks like so much fun
>>488 >you can't switch out the arms or hands That's not true, the arms can pop out of socket and be switched. I do it all the time. You just have to pull them straight out, instead of how the minifig arms need to be popped out an an angle.
>>512 Thanks for that, I thought with how thin the arms are popping them out would be impossible.

I'd like to see more minidoll mocs in 2021!
>>810 Beautiful LQ, just beautiful. The lighting is absolutely perfect.
>>815 Thanks! The instant I saw that 3D glasses head the idea for that picture immediately popped into my mind.
>>821 How did you get the light at the back? Was it just a simple LED light?
>>824 It's [spoiler]a shop

>>895 Can't argue with that!
Didn't Lego briefly introduce sets with was basically a "Barbie's little sister" style doll back in the 90s?
>>910 Belville and Scala were both doll-based lines

>>910 >>912 How popular were those, any way? I wonder how compatible their parts are with normal LEGO for MOCs too. Still on a mini doll genocide kick by the way, the 'totally-not-gypsies magic carnival' summer wave has some nice new parts including glow-in-the-dark slopes. Great for fantasy/Castle themes,
>>1178 That is clearly an Elves elf

>>1180 I once came up with an idea for a continuation of the Elves theme: >New minidoll theme for 2019 will be Space Friends like the other anon said, but in 2023 the new theme will be magical girls in the Earth realm after the link between Elfland and Earth is severed. Main characters will be a team of teenage girls from Earth who are recruited by a handsome older man who wants to collect several hidden treasures "of great evil" scattered around Earth "to stop them from falling into the wrong hands". HOM is actually the bad guy orchestrating everything to collect the evil objects for his own use. Supposed antagonist is a thief not much older than the girls who may or may not be half-elven. Gimmicks will be magical smartphones that contact Elfland and are collectable like Nexo shields, and cute animal familiars for each of the girls. Sets will all be scaled-down versions of famous landmarks around the world where they fight the local monsters for possession of the artifact. >Source: I squinted real hard at the wrinkles on the Wyldstyle Duplo polybag and thought I saw it in the background
>>1181 >a team of teenage girls from Earth who are recruited by a handsome older man >a handsome older man The gimmicks and set locations are great but that part? Let me guess, HOM has a striking resemblance to you in your mind?
>>1182 lol it was a reverse Charlie's Angels situation where Charlie is secretly the bad guy
>>1184 Oh thank god, I was worried we'd have the next Marv Wolfman on our hands.
>>1185 Nope.

>>1187 He wrote Terry Long, which is his self-insert (a 'handsome' older man) dating one of the Teen Titans. (Emphasis on the teen part.) The Elves sets were cool, I still want to use the giant animal heads as arm cannons for a mech. Or some fucked up hydra monstrosity.
