Behind the scenes: Building a tribute to ToyHive’s first 100 Facebook fans.

There was a lot more minion mayhem than our Facebook photo revealed last week. The goal was simply to take a photo of 100 lego minifigures and thank our first 100 fans on Facebook.  Our minions were more than delighted to help out – it was a nice break from building rocket launchers and fart guns…

Early stages of ToyHive’s Facebook Tribute

Our back drop consisted of a half-dozen “World of Warcraft” cups we got from our recent Comic-Con. They were giving tons of these away for free.  Near the end the organizers were begging attendees to take entire boxes of them. Both Stuart and Dave managed to take several “breaks” during the construction of this tribute.

Break #1: Minions discover that the cups were the perfect size for hats too…

After returning to work, it was soon time for another break…

Break #2: Minions challenge each other to a cup stacking contest.

And back to work again… Eventually, Stuart completes the tribute by placing the 100th mini-fig.

Putting the final touches on…

Until Dave knocked a bunch over (again).

I recall Stuart telling Dave to “Be careful!” just before this happened.

That’s when Stuart lost it. Chaos errupted. Mini-figs, cups and minions went flying…

And they were so close to being done…

After several more breaks. The minions got the job done – and we proudly posted the photo on our Facebook page

 

WARNING – DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!

Break #(we lost count): Minion with a mouthful of mini-figs

AGAIN – DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!

After observing this odd behavior, my guess is that the goal was to see how many mini-figs you can stuff in your mouth while saying “Minnions love Mini-Figs” three times fast. We suggest you play Chubby Bunny instead.
