Citizen Brick, a store in Chicago that designs custom LEGO pieces, has created custom figures of the symbols of resistance.
The company have created figurines modelled after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Molotov Cocktails. Citizen Brick are raising money for medical supplies in Ukraine and the surrounding countries.
They design custom LEGO pieces and fans of the plastic construction toy brand can buy all kinds of items including cigarettes, bandaged LEGO heads and various other items that don’t particularly go well with LEGO’s mainstream corporate image.
Now, the company is offering Molotov Cocktails and Ukraine’s President as custom pieces. They stated in a Facebook post:
“In light of the recent invasion of Ukraine by the Russian military, Citizen Brick has decided to raise donations to help Ukrainian refugees. During tomorrow’s sale, shoppers will have a chance to purchase these two custom items—the Molotov Cocktail ($10), and President Volodymyr Zelenskyy minifig ($100). Supplies will be very limited,”
“100% of the sale of these items will go to @directrelief to assist with their efforts to bring medical supplies to the people of Ukraine.”
Direct Relief is a charity that provides disaster and humanitarian relief to countries around the world. According to Citizen Brick, it’s raised $16,540 through sales on their website with an additional $170 through the donate button on Facebook.
We love to see it!
