My favorite band is Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers. Iíve made several different Tom Petty Lego models. The first can be seen above, which is a lDraw virtual model of the complete band on stage performing. The second creation I made was a wall sculpture of the Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers logo. My third creation was a photo mosaic of Tom Petty and the 2013 logo.

My version of the iconic logo is based on a newer version (seen below) of the logo. The simpler color scheme made it easier to construct out of Lego.

I decided to make my Flying V guitar white instead of tan as in the original, as the wedge pieces I needed were too hard to find in tan Lego, My model was made over the span of three weeks, with about 1/2 hour of work done on average per day on it. The final model measures roughly six feet across and three feet high.

My hometown of London Ontario was fortunate enough to be the only Canadian date on the Heartbreakers 2013 tour. Theyíve been fantastic all the previous times Iíve seen them, but I think this was definitely my favorite . I decided to create a photo mosaic which I could hang on the wall based on one of the 2013 tour shirts I had purchased. The image I based my mosaic on is below.

 

Below is the my final mosaic. It consists of six of the large gray baseplates. Click on the picture below for a closer look.
