Custom LEGO Minifigure of the Week - Highwayman by Short and Plastic

Posted

We absolutely love this minifigure created by Short and Plastic on Tumblr (and wow, what a great username)! For those who don't know, like me until I Google searched it, a Highwayman is not a man who likes to drive on the highway. These were robbers who targeted travelers back in the 1600-1800s, sticking them up and stealing all their stuff. This one wears a sweet, custom painted (even in black and white, you can tell!) Pirate Coat with a Tricorn on top for good measure. He also holds a Lantern for light and, although you can't make it out clearly and I'm not entirely sure, I believe his weapon of choice is a Flintlock Pistol. Don't want to be on the opposite end of that! A magnificent custom minifigure, and a bit of a history lesson to boot. How about that? 

(P.S. Did you know that you can find BrickWarriors on Tumblr? Check us out!)
