Straight out of the Old West, this somewhat functional Lego cowboy puppet sports a hat made out of capes, a mustache made from whips, and a loaded revolver. Something out of my comfort zone as far as construction techniques go, this was a challenge and a joy to build. Enjoy!
About this creation
This shot was nearly impossible to take. Taking a picture with your feet is about as hard as it sounds.

Fantastic idea! Do the knee hinges have too much friction, or do they fall naturally?
Great question. The knee and thigh hinges unfortunately are a bit to stiff to fall naturally. I was hoping the weight of the boots would reduce the friction, but the legs are really not that operational.
Wow Paul! You never cease to impress! Love the entire thing. I am also impressed with the shot taken with your feet, but, couldn't you have someone else take the picture while you are holding the marionette? Anyway, Love all of the detail. Cheers!
Lovely work Paul! The part usage is excellent. I'm particularly impressed with how you did his hair (facial hair included). When this has 350 likes and you're being interviewed by ABC News, I'll try to avoid getting "hung up" over having been the first to learn about this project. I know, I'm so humble right? Kidding, kidding! Now all he needs is a cabbage or two and he'll be good to go. Great job buddy ol' pal!
