LEGO fans, you have a new project this weekend: a cute one Black Panther statue, with instructions from Tyler Clites, co-winner of LEGO Masters. Brick Show Shop gives away instructions for this striking design for free, as a PDF download. You must provide the blocks yourself (or pick them up from an online store).
A little background: LEGO “MOCs” (short for My Own Creation) are patterns that are displayed and shared with society. Independent LEGO designers sell the instructions for a few bucks, and fans can use their own collections to make the set, or purchase pieces individually to complete it from sites like BrickLink.
This MOC is inspired by the Black Panther statue, seen in the fictional nation Wakanda in the Marvel series and the movie of the same name. It was designed by renowned LEGO artist Tyler Clites, who became nationally famous as the winner of the FOX video game show LEGO Masters last year, along with his wife and other LEGO designer Amy Clites.
To celebrate T’Challa / Black Panther actor Chadwick Boseman, who sadly died of cancer at the end of last month, Clites now allows anyone to download the instructions for free. Similar instructions from indie builders usually cost $ 5-10. Once you have purchased them from The Brick Show Shop, you can print them out or follow along on your phone.
Boseman’s death has inspired art and tributes from around the world. If you want to capture the original source material, ComiXology currently offers hundreds Black Panther problem free.
