Adly Syairi Ramly is a former music journalist who, in an interview with Poskod, revealed that he has been a fan of Lego since the age of two

A former music journalist who currently works as an Assistant VP at Astro, Adly has been making painstaking Lego models of his favourite bands. He then photographs the models on his iPhone 5.

Adly says he wouldn’t describe himself as a serious collector, because he only collects what he likes. But he derives great joy in building Lego musicians, with some of the characters requiring pieces from four or five different minifigure sets. “I love the challenges and the satisfaction in Legolising the subject to near perfection.”

Adly has plans to exhibit his Lego collection at 17A Snackfood & The Off Day in Bangsar this August

“Saya akan ambil wajah orang Lego yang hampir sama dengan wajah artis yang ingin saya buat, dan mencamtumkan beberapa bahagian Lego seperti kepala, kaki dan badan mengikut karekter sebenar artis tersebut." - Adly Syairi Ramly

"If there's one thing I'd like to see more is brown-skinned coloured Lego minifigures"

So what’s the biggest challenge of building bands in Lego? “If there’s one thing I’d like to see more is brown-skinned coloured Lego minifigures. It’s kinda hard to do a Legolised version of African-American personalities without it, which is kinda frustrating.” - Adly Syairi Ramly
