I’ve finally had time to go through the swag bag for registered attendees from Philly Brick Fest a few weeks ago and one of the items included was a LEGO mini build of the Philadelphia Phillies’ famous mascot, the Phillie Phanatic. The Phanatic is recognized as one of the best sports mascots and was the the first mascot to be inducted into the Mascot Hall of Fame.
I believe the LEGO Phanatic build was created by Carter Baldwin (correct me if I’m wrong) and it uses the new LEGO Mixels joints to give it plenty of articulation on the head, arms, and legs. It even has the extendable tongue by the way of a red wand piece. The sticker of the Phillies jersey completes the look of the character.
Overall the mini LEGO Phillie Phanatic is a very neat little build that was included in the swag bag. I really like the look of it compared to the real-life counterpart. I’ll be showing off more swag that I got from my trip in the next few days when I have some free time. I also have tons of pictures to upload of the MOCs that were on dispay so I’ll probably be breaking them up in a couple of posts.
