The images are from Brickshelf - but I found them through this site http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/11344
In the second picture you can see a detail of the arm and side of the body. I'm thinking this is a brilliant (and cheaper solution to the problem of having 2 x 2 x 3 slopes). Clever! (like me for finding it so quickly).

I never bought the set at the time because it was pretty expensive and I waited to long for it to be on sale! I built the set from the instructions available at Peeron and by pieces I already had. I had to compromise on some pieces as I did not always have the correct parts, but the finished model is the same. There is a lot of 'L' shaped bricks and plates in the set and they are not always easy to get hold of. I also used a lot of my green plate for the hat!
I do have some LEGO logo stickers from the Promo Truck set that I thought of using, but I personally think it looks better without them (like most sets).
I have to agree with Richard that there is something wrong with the proportions, especially with the limbs. It's also a strange choice of colour, but I think it looks pretty nice as a display piece rather than a true scaled-up Minifig.

I don't know why, but I had the urge to build something scaled up to Deskpal size '4x'. I had a go at a section of The Week-end House 6370. Unfortunately my camera flash is a bit bright and you can't see the detail on the door. I don't really intend to keep this model, but it might be cool to finish it - or build something smaller like the blue Post Office 6689 - or CAFE CORNER 10182 - Droooooool (The door is the same design after all).
OK, so this is not really a scaled-up minifigure. It is more like the proportions of a Jack Stone figure as it has longer limbs. A lot of the park models tend to be done to this scale.
The question is, are these models 'allowed' on this blog? If this is something you would like to see thats fine, please let us know. Likewise, if you feel this is out of place here we won't include ones like this in the future.
Can anyone suggest an appropriate name for this type of display model?

Could this be the x30 model from
Sorry for the size of the picture - it was a tiny picture in Bricks 'n' Pieces. I'll search for it again to get info on where the figure was displayed.
