The Making of Lego sculptures
• Creating sculptures from Lego
Now we will look at the workshop Master Builders team. Mainly it is a sculptor Mark Roe During his 22-year career in the company's Roe designed and created more than 150 sculptures from Lego in full size.
It looks like a workshop, which is located next to the headquarters of Lego in Enfield, Conn.
At the entrance you can see a stand on which the head of the previous sculptures.
There are all kinds of figures in a full-length for special events or premieres of films. Usually such figure out 20-50 thousand. Cube.
Wonder Woman made for the premiere of the eponymous film in 2017.
Cubes for shapes are stored in large containers. Each master has a box in which it collects the necessary items, and then sent to their workplace.
Workshop containers cubes. Here are the details sorted by size, color and shape. Any creative mess ... ehhh .. pedants.
Before you begin, Ro explores object, collects and analyzes its image. Then, in the special program "Brick Builder" created a variation of blocks. To create the model Rho team is doing measurements in full size. After the completion of the design pattern (it takes about 60 hours) program is a step-by-step wizards specifies which to use cubes.

Here is the platform model. In the center is a rod, which provides support for the figure. With this design, the foundation can be easily moved.
Of course, all parts are bonded to each other, otherwise it would have broke, well, or someone to complete his collection.
Master collected pieces around a steel rod that saves it from falling. they often turn out not very difficult, because they are empty inside. For instance, Bumgarner figure weighed only about 54 kg, which reduced the cost of moving. About three weeks, the model was constructed.
Of course alone is impossible to build. In this sculptor has three assistants.
And here is a special device to dry the glue, it is encased in the ceiling.
Most often, the master model is selected for stable posture.
But sometimes the figures are unsustainable, forcing creators nervous.
For some companies, they create the statue is not the first year. So for this baseball team, they created two figures, and now it turns out the composition of Lego, which will adorn the club's stadium in San Francisco. Soon it will be possible to save on the payroll athletes.
