Clare Grant – The Minifig Series

While I am an AFOL (Adult Fan Of Lego) I also happen to be a geek in many other ways. This is no surprise to those that know me.  I’m a comic book collector, sci-fi fan, gamer, aviation geek, spacetweep – well the list actually goes on.  A few years ago I started to see more and more geek girls, and geek women to start and finally come into their own.  This has given me both great joy and great hope for mankind.  One of the more popular and visible geek girls on the planet now is Clare Grant. She is an actress, and geek, co-founder of  Team Unicorn and I recently found out via her Twitter feed, a fan of Lego Bricks!!!  So, how could I resist in fulfilling her wish to become an, albeit unofficial, Lego minifig.  I did this as a fan gift to her as I have greatly enjoyed her work and what she has done to remove the myth of there being no geek girls/women.  Once completed (they’re still a work in progress), I’ll ship them to her as an EARLY Christmas present.

After starting this project it became very difficult to pick a single character to represent her in Lego bricks.  So, following the Lego Group’s example, I decided to do several minifigs in a series.

So without futher ado, I present Clare Grant – Lego Minifigs, Series 1.

Clare as Lara Croft in the music video G33K & G4M3R Girls

SPOILER!! Clare as the “Red Spartan” in The Guild’s Season Five Finale.

And lastly, Clare as Lexie, one of the Sexy Nightmare Slayers.
