LoZ Gift Series Diamond Blocks: Minion Dave

I have always been fascinated by the simplicity and elegance of building blocks. You can build anything you want with your imagination, up to the physical limitations of the blocks. I remember seeing the Nanoblocks for the first time in Singapore, and given that I have loved building blocks since I was a child, I instantly fell in love with the product, but not with its hefty price tag. Same with Lego building blocks, they’re quite expensive to fit into my budget and collect.

Then here comes an cheaperimitation” for the Nanoblocks, yay! =3

Introducing LoZ Gift Series Diamond Blocks: Minion Dave:

Minion Dave is from the movie Despicable Me, if you haven’t watched the movie, you’re missing out! :p

Blocks count is 260 pieces according to the box, but I didn’t take the effort to count the block myself. It is challenging to build this guy because of the small blocks.

Of course it comes with instructions on how to build this guy.

It took me around 45 minutes to build him since I had trouble in the first few steps. It would be wise to have a pair of tweezers around to handle them, especially that I have thick fingers.

Some areas I built crudely since it was really hard to handle the single unit blocks.

While building, he seems to be flimsy at first, but when you finally complete Dave, he seems sturdy enough.

His back right side looks shitty, was lazy to fix it anymore. XD Anyway I’ll be displaying him front faced.

They have a lot more other characters on sale and I will be exploring them. 🙂

I miss blogging here and building gunplas, I hope I can allot time again for my hobby since I am busy right now with financial duties. 😀

Till next time! Thank you for viewing! 🙂

Here are the instruction sheet for people requesting it:

  1. Hi,
    can i have some tips regarding on how to start to build as i have one as well . and im having troubles on starting .
    thank you !


    1. I only followed the instructions step by step. He’s a bit hard to build I admit, my tip is to use lighter pressure in handling him so that you won’t offset the other blocks that are already in its proper place. 🙂

      If your fingers are a bit large, you can use tweezers for the single block ones like I do. 🙂
