Was unsure where to put this, so figured this forum was appropriate.

3 years ago-ish I made this head design cuz I had the intention of making Manny Calavera from Grim Fandango. However when I decide to get it printed by my guy, turns out he no longer was in business so I was unable to get it printed by anyone else (because printing is zomg expensive). Recently I pulled up the design and had another customizor engrave it in. I am happy with the result because I am slowly getting my work printed/engraved on Lego. :)

Also for those that don't know, calaca heads/dolls are for celebration of the Day of the Dead.

Those look great and being engraved just ups the value of these as opposed to being a decal. Decal would have been great, but this looks better.

These look awesome. While I am not really familiar with this Manny Calavera or Grim Fandango, I love calaveras in general. And the fact that they're engraved makes it that much better.

Grim Fandango is an old PC game by LucasArts. It is a hilariously well written story about the undead, and because it is Mexican themed, it is centered around the Day of the Dead. Youtube it. :P

What a crazy face, it'll make a great 'other face' in the 'undead world of Lego', Nice design Omi.
Also, pretty cool about getting these engraved.
