LEGO might easily be the most creative toy in the world. Small wonder the little coloured building blocks have inspired a wide range of fan art for lots of movies and games. Iron Grip: Marauders is now among them!
Personally, I like that the artist added Cinnamon to the Farlix LEGO figurine. Although I’m not sure why he made Emilia black.
I would like to use this opportunity to tell you a little more about one of our favourite heroes, Vancer. I think his figurine is the most accurate. An old pirate in the Captain’s Bar once described him like this: “… he’s good at keeping the troops in line, but I’m sure you’ll agree that the nicest thing can be said about him is that he knows how to kill people.”
I must say that this LEGO version of Vancer looks a lot more harmless than the real one. He’s almost as ugly as Farlix, but a lot meaner. To say that he knows how to kill people, like the greybeard at the bar said, is an understatement. Sitting snugly in his tank, he leads his bands of marauders to strike where he can get the most money, and he is ruthless on the battlefield. While Farlix has some sort of morals, Vancer is just in it for the cash. Did you know that has a lucky cat in the cabin of his tank? Before he engages in a battle he says a little prayer for luck and riches. Maybe that’s the secret to his success.
