#839 TIPS: Dynamic minifigure posing

Minifigures are one of my favourite things about LEGO, with their detailed designs and ability to enhance MOCs. Today we're looking at how you can position the minifigures in your builds to create dynamic and interesting poses and scenes.

There are many different ways you can pose your minifigures, but to get the most realistic and interesting poses you'll need to detach the arms or legs. This allows you to position them in ways that weren't possible before, just like the soldier siting in a bunk in the example by Gabe F. Often you'll need to use small bits of blue tac to hold the parts in place and then try to hide the joining method if possible.
