Lego Keith Hernandez 1986

I’ve been working on this one for a while and it’s finally done: Lego Keith Hernandez 1986.

This was my first face decal. Thank you everyone who reviewed the variations. I also did decals for the stripes. I had a hard time getting the colors of the stripes right (because of the color of the plastic underneath) but other than that I’m pretty happy with it. Helmet emblem, belt, socks, and shoes are hand-painted.

The glove is made of Green Stuff putty. He’s got interchangeable right hands so he can hold the glove or the bat. The bat is from BrickArms.com

    In addition to mitt and bat, cigarette could be a third possibility (he was caught by TV cameras smoking in the dugout a couple times during that era).

    Too cool.

    That’s very cool. I still like the idea of Larry Tate as a lego the most.
