Steve Robbins had a brilliant idea: the creation of an amazing collection of virtual LEGO based on the Kabuki heros. Here are his words to explain this great project: "I enjoy the concept behind LEGO Minifigurines; a modular toy, much like collectible-art. However, they've been stuck to series (Pirates) or licenses (Star Wars). There's such potential for historical periods or legends. It shouldn't stop at safe and scrubbed! Push the envelope! So I've started to draw up ideas". Here they are, the incredible Kabuki LEGO MANS:

Kamakura Gongor˘ Kagemasa in the bombastic drama "Shibaraku"

The wicked priest Narukami in the eponymous drama "Narukami"

The Edo otokodate Sukeroku in the eponymous drama "Sukeroku"

The shishi parent and cub in the dance "Renjishi"

The monk warrior Musashib˘ Benkei in the dance-drama "Kanjinch˘"

Benten Koz˘ Kikunosuke in "Shiranami Gonin Otoko"

The shiraby˘shi Hanako in the dance "Musume D˘j˘ji"

The king of thieves Ishikawa Goemon in "Sanmon"

The evil Ikyű in "Sukeroku"

The Adachi-ga-Hara ogress in "Kurozuka"

Toraya T˘kichi, in reality Soga Gor˘ Tokimune, in the sogamono "Uir˘ Uri"

The boatman Jinbei in "Sakura Giminden"

The warrior Taira no Tomomori in the "Daimotsu no Ura" scene of "Yoshitsune Senbon Zakura"
