#364 Favourite Brick Friday: 970c00 Minifigure legs

This week's favourite brick is or are rather the minifigure legs, a common piece that has many uses in MOCs.



Its obvious use is in mechs as the hands of the mechanical suits. In this case, the legs remain attached to the hips, but if you remove the legs you can utilize the unique shaping of them.


Jordan on Flickr has done just that, and arranged the minifigure legs using SNOT bricks to make a cross-bow opening. The legs have many other applications beyond this, as intricate stone work on cathedrals or statues.


Here is the piece on Bricklink: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=970c00&name=Hips%20and%20Legs&category=%5BMinifig,%20Legs%20Assembly%5D#T=S&O={"iconly":0}
