"minifigure" redefined!

Noah is such a stickler when it comes to proportions. Remember how he used Toy Story Woody's long legs for Ultron here since he's supposed to be 8-feet-tall vs the regular-sized Ironman & Captain America minifigs who are 6-feet-tall?

So when he told me he wanted to make Ant-Man, I tried to manage his expectations and said it might not be possible to make a really tiny minifig. After all, they're called minifigs because they're already "mini"! But he said he could with this trophy of this sumo wrestler minifig. 

After we purchased that tiny trophy, I was worried he'd end up frustrated if he couldn't draw Ant-Man's details to fit that tiny minifig. But he proved me wrong. He started with tiny details on the chest. 

Then drew even tiner details on the face. 

Then he put silver paint on the pedestal. 

He even put these tiny details at the back of Ant-Man's tiny head. 

And it really was tiny. 

Unbelievably tiny. 

I am so amazed he was able to draw such fine details on this minier-than-mini minifig! Now this, this is the real "minifigure"!

Noah's age when he created this: 10 years, 5 months
