The Pokemon franchise has captivated fans of all ages for almost two and a half decades. In fact, the series has reached a whole new level with the release of the Nintendo Switch, which allows players to interact with their favorite characters on screen.
One dedicated Pokemon fan has built sculptures of some of the series’ titular collectible monsters out of LEGO building toys, and the results are visually stunning for all who see them. These life-sized Pokémon models are not only a work of art, but they also come with an interesting story to tell.
A fire-type starter Pokemon, Charmander has a reptilian body and a slender tail that burns with a flame from its birth. This flame is an indication of the Pokemon’s health and mood. It burns brightly when it is strong, weakly when exhausted, wavering when it’s happy, and blazing when it’s enraged.
This lizard-like Pokemon is considered one of the best starters to catch in the Pokémon world because it can evolve into another powerful Fire-type Pokemon, Charizard. However, if its flame ever goes out, it dies.
As with other Pokemon, Charmander has a number of variants that can be found across the various games and merchandise. For example, some artwork uses Charmander’s original three-fingered hand design, while the Trading Card Game, anime (including movies and specials), and 3D models use the more consistent four-fingered hand.
With all of these different variations of the Pokemon available, it can be difficult to decide which one to choose. That’s why it is important to keep a few things in mind while choosing your next Pokemon model.
For starters, it’s best to choose a Pokemon that’s not only unique but is also interesting to look at. It could be something that’s a little quirky or unusual in the way it looks, like this Tentacruel, which has a light blue body with red orbs on both sides.
You should also consider how the Pokemon would behave in battle. A Pokemon that is unable to move will lose the battle, so it’s important to pick one that’s not clumsy or prone to getting knocked out easily.
A Pokemon that’s able to jump is also an advantage, so it’s best to choose one that can do this. A nimble Charmander will be able to get away from a lot of attacks, and will be a much better opponent than a Pokémon that can’t jump.
While you’re at it, don’t forget to grab some extra bricks to make your Charmander a bit more durable. The last thing you want is a damaged LEGO Charmander!
There are many different kinds of bricks and plates that can be used to build these Pokemon models. There’s the standard LEGO blocks, but there’s also Mega Construx, a company that makes smaller, more affordable blocks. These are perfect for beginners or those who don’t have a lot of money to spend on their builds.
It’s important to note that although there are some LEGO Pokemon models out there, the official sets have yet to be released. The LEGO brand doesn’t sell a ton of Pokemon themed items, but it does have a wide selection of pieces that can be used for other types of projects.
