Even after the historic win by the Toronto Raptor’s in the NBA Finals, some of us still have Raptor fever. Now a fan has created an amazing tribute to the team, using LEGO!
Twitter user Aaron Chapman (@legovader217) has made a custom creation out of LEGO featuring the Toronto Raptors.

He posted the creation on LEGO’s Ideas website, where users can submit their creations for everyone to see and vote on. If a creation reaches 10,000 like supporters, it qualifies for the ‘LEGO Review’ which takes place 3 times a year. The LEGO Review Board reviews submissions during that time and considers them for production.
The creation features a sign with the Team’s motto ‘We The North’, a ball rack and launcher, the starting line-up with LEGO mini-figures of players, the court and even a Raptor!
The 370 piece set is described as both a mantle piece and an action playset, as the ball launcher works to shoot some baskets. There has been a great deal of attention to details with the creation, including the Raptor’s logo on the basketballs and 3 of the players in the final game-winning jerseys and 2 others in the more traditional home and away jerseys with each player’s name.
Chapman also plans to update the mini-figures to match the face, hairstyle and shorts of each player.
