TMNT Casey Jones :: Another custom LEGO minifigure

Hot on the heels of my custom LEGO Metalhead and Panda Khan minifigure comes my custom LEGO minifigure of the one and only Casey Jones!

I used an old slightly play-worn 'Evil Skeleton' headpiece, and it works pretty well as a LEGO version of Casey Jones' goalie mask. I may someday get creative and just draw a more comicbook accurate face onto a clean white LEGO headpiece, but this works for now.

I used a random black hairpiece and a torso piece that has what appears to be sports padding of some sort. I know Casey didn't generally run around with any padding, but it works with the theme. To finish, I gave Casey grey 'sweatpants', flesh toned arms and ddark grey hands (to emulate gloves.)

For his 'golf bag' I used one of these ubiquitous LEGO bits, and jammed a hammer of some sort in the end which looks a bit like a putter. I also gave him LEGO Nelson Muntz's baseball bat and a hockey stick form an earlier blind bagged hockey player minifigure.

  1. This is the best yet. Love the golf bag (I think that's a traffic light piece, right?). I also dig the hybrid element to him. A nice mix of the new & original Casey.

    1. Thanks! Yeah, I think the piece is often used as a traffic light.

  2. That's very clever, I love it! I really need to start making custom LEGO figs again.

    1. Yes you do! It's a lot of fun, and cheaper than therapy!
