About this creation
Wow. I can't believe I'm uploading something. It's been many months, and several battles with Java, now apparently resolved in my favor, since I've been able to upload anything.


(Warning: backstory stuff coming early this time) Why Pikachu? Why not?!? Okay, when Pokemon came out in '99, my youngest brother was a big fan. I...was not. In fact, I found it annoying. Fast-forward to '15, when my five- and seven-year-old children start watching this crazy animated show I remember hating from my childhood. *groan* But, it turns out, they are crazy about the show, and talk about the monsters constantly, so I get sucked in. Finally, in June of this year, I promised my youngest two: I will make a Lego Pikachu this summer. In July, Pokemon GO suddenly appeared: I downloaded it, got hooked, and now, Pik-a-CHU!




Pikachu is relaxing in his natural environment, the wild grasslands of North America.




Pikachu with his creator.




Luckily, the park where I shot the pictures had a couple Pokestops so I could stock up after the photo session :)






So cute!






















I had a few more "under construction" pics but they uploaded all distorted. This one shows the part of the spider collection my ten-year-old placed inside Pikachu in an early phase.




While working on the head, I set it on a pillar. Later, to attach it, I simply built an upper and lower beam coming out of the head, high and low, in the back. The beams make a simple friction hold that keeps the head secure but allows easy removal.




Pikachu is going to help promote my next Lego Camp. He is also going to star in my school's upcoming reading contest, "Gotta Read 'Em All!" This Pokemon card will be displayed next to him along with the paper Pokedexes students will fill out as they read through various genres of the library.

Not into Pokemon BUT that aside this is a marvelous representation of the character Pik-a-chu! I love the fact you included how you built it, close-ups, and the research from the game! I also loved your photo shopping the trading card! Well Done! And I love you posed with it so we could get an idea of it's size!

That photo of a hollow pikachu with spiders inside is pretty darn creepy. Nice job otherwise.
