Studley Billund Returns..

Studley Billund the Lego compatible Mechtorian Mini figure is reborn in three factory painted versions with pad printed bodies.

Produced in collaboration with Crazy Bricks, each of the minifigures uses a combination of new injection molded ABS parts combined with re-purposed official Lego parts.

The new figures will be available from my online store on Friday 28th July.

There are three different versions available :


“Mourning” edition. A stylish black and silver design with purple hat and jacket.

The Brass edition. With summery light brown and grey attire.

The Steel edition. In a dapper black topper and coat. Sporting a cool bow tie!

Each comes bagged with a collector card.

Studley Billund had a dream.
A dream of total compatibility between all Mechtorians.
He dreamed of a world where people could help each other by lending a hand, a whole arm. a leg or whatever part
was needed at the time. A world where people could come together to build something greater than themselves by combining their unique abilities and unique parts for the greater good.
But people told him he was just playing.
His ideas were the dreams of a child.

He listened to them…..
Now he makes the most popular toy system in the world.

The figures are also available direct from Crazy Bricks in the USA.
