You dirty rat!

At Toyriffic World Headquarters, whenever anyone picks up a Lego Mini-figure we like to build a little diorama around the figure's theme.

That's just how we roll at TWH.

So when I obtained the Gangster from Lego mini-figure series five I pondered all the wonderful possibilities until the future Mrs. BubbaShelby said 'why don't you have him tossing a guy in cement shoes off a pier?'

Gotta love a woman who suggests making a Lego mini-figure in cement shoes and getting tossed off a pier by a ruthless Mob Boss!

So I designed a little dockside pier with a lamppost (because if movies have taught me anything it is that this type of 'business' happens on the docks and usually at night) and put together a Construction Foreman in cement shoes who clearly wasn't willing to play along with the crooked union leader's plan.

I also designed the platform so that the Foreman can also be attached to a swivel-piece; when you lift the pier he swings down into the 'water.' The Gangster did not originally come with the Tommy-Gun, but every goog Gangster worth his salt needs a Tommy-Gun! He did come with a handgun and the violin case, which opens up and will hold the handgun inside.

So is this it? Is this the end? Is there no hope for the poor Foreman, a man whose only crime was to stand up for what is good and right in this world...?


Aw yeah JSA! The Golden Age Flash (aka Jay Garrick), in a blur of super speed is about to disarm that malicious mobster and will have the Foreman back in proper work boots before you can say 'Myeah, myeah!'
