Dumfries and Galloway LEGO - Hall of Fame
We are massive fan of learning history here at United Bricks, espeically local history, and so we delighted to create these amazing famous people from Dumfries and Galloway in LEGO.
To help mark World Autism Awareness week, we teamed up with the Dumfries & Galloway Autism Awareness Project Group to create five unique and exclusive printed minifgures using our Bespoke Printing service. Our first task was to pick which famous people we wanted to represent in Lego.
With much deliberation we settled on five people that show the vast wealth of culture here in the region. From the famous Scottish poet, Robert Burns to the more recent Formula 1 driver, David Coultard, Jesse M King the childrens book illustrator, Lady Dervorguilla and not forgetting the most famous of all, Robert the Bruce!
We quickly set about designing these figures and careful research was undertaken to ensure that these figures were historically accurate. For some, like David Coulthard and Robert the Bruce, we found many reference photos to aid in our design but for others such as Lady Darvorguilla and Jesse M King, images were harder to find. While designing these figures we made sure that we captured famous details, such as Robert the Bruce's Red Lion, Robert Burns hair style and even Jesse M King's black hat.
These minifigures were launched and presented at Gracefield Arts Centre in Dumfries alongside a LEGO exhibition. This exhibition starts on 24th February and runs until 7th April 2018. Gracefield is open Tuesday – Saturday 10am-5pm and the exhibition is free admission. That's plenty of time to explore and join in with the LEGO fun! To learn more about the exhibition please visit the Gracefield Art Centre website.
The full set of five famous Dumfries & Galloway characters retail at £22.00 per set and an additonal £2.00 P&P for UK delivery.
