LEGO: Sumo Battle

Here's another LEGO diorama fresh from the fertile mind of Andrew Joseph... so fertile you can smell the manure! (Is that a better joke than: "... so fertile you can get pregnant just by looking at it"?)

Anyhow... here is my LEGO sumo ring, complete with clay (made my own play-dough with food coloring), ring from the Ninja-go set, two sumo wrestlers from the LEGO Minifig Series 3 (which also had a samurai warrior). Man... LEGO loves Japanese culture (old school) almost as much as I do!

I also made a Gyoji (a sumo referee), gave him a fan used to point to the match winner and to act as a tray to provide the winner with his match winnings. Dammit all... I even found a wild pattern I liked and made a uniform and hat for him. I know the hat is not standard, and neither is the color, but I wanted him to stand out a bit and add some flavor to the diorama that food coloring could not duplicate.

I am also quite proud of the fact that there are footprints all around the ring from this particular match.

Who's going to win? I'm betting on the fat one! Oops... I shouldn't have said 'bet'.

Other diorama's made by myself can be found below:

LEGO DIORAMA 5

Anyhow... the Gyoji is shouting: "nokotta nokotta!" (You're still in it! You're still in it!). Enjoy:

LEGO diorama built and photographed by Andrew Joseph - that's me!
