The Adventures of Gruff (Photography project)
« on: March 05, 2014, 06:17:19 am »
Meet Gruff, he's all you'd expect from a 2cm tall wildlife enthusiast and much more. Here you can follow his antics through the African bush as he gets himself into all sorts of trouble.

On a serious note, Gruff is a photography project. A light-hearted parody of life in the bush, and the reality that this little LEGO man experiences more things, takes more risks, has more fun and lives a fuller life than some life-sized people.

Gruff showing off his 4x4 skills.
Don't worry, he has all the proper permits for driving offroad in a nature reserve!

Very cool Gruff ... Maybe gruff should go on a 4x4 course too  :lol8:

Gruff tests the latest model. Both the handling and acceleration leave a lot to be desired, but at least it feels solid on and off road, and there's ample torque for even the trickiest terrain. If you're in the market for a rugged vehicle with old-school styling, Gruff highly recommends the 3L TT (Turbo Tortoise).

He does caution that you should not go for the SUV though, there's not much interior space since most of it has been given over to the powerful engine...

I really want a cowboy hat for him. Make him look a bit more ranger-ish.

Love it!  On AVCOM (aviation community) we had 2 Dumbasses (RC pilot figures) travelling the globe as well.  Very entertaining.
