LEGO-men-tary, my dear Watson

Lego detective

“Why, the solution is as simple as clicking two bricks together!”

I came across the chap on the left whilst looking at the LEGO website for the Minor Offences earlier today.

If you’ve got a major mystery to solve, the Detective is your minifigure. He’s famed across the land for his amazing deductive skills, and he never gives up on a case, no matter how impossible it may at first appear. He just whips out his magnifying glass, follows the clues, and always arrives at the right solution in the end.


Lego_Baker_StreetAnd whilst we’re on the topic of LEGO detectives, you might be interested in this new series from publisher MX Publishing. Illustrator P. James Malacuso Jr has used LEGO to illustrate three Holmes stories in bricks, inspired by Sidney Paget’s illustrations and the Granada TV series. Roger Johnson from The Sherlock Holmes Society of London says that the photos  are “Different, clever and rather charming.”
