About this deal

Also, I made a left hand because I'm left-handed, but you could just switch a couple pieces around to put the thumb on the other side. This model acts as a tool to help understand the structural makeup of the palm and achieves this in very few pieces. This hand is modelled from the structure of a human hand, the palm being the highlight of this work. but I've occasionally seen pictures, and sometimes official Lego ones, that have the hands turned the other way. It follows the anatomy of the human palm and is able to perfectly replicate the posture of the palm in action.

This may result in the creation of profiles, although direct identification of a person is usually not possible due to pseudonymisation.Minifigure hands have appeared in every set that contains a LEGO minifigure, which means it has appeared in almost every LEGO set since 1978, when it was created. Given that the pinky is shorter, and that the thumb is further away from the pinky, I would think that the "fatter" end makes more sense to be the "top" of the hand (pointing up/forward). In fact, it's probably the one bit of Lego that I get all OCD over, it bothers me when the hands aren't 'right', even when I can't think of a reason for it.

That's the typical orientation, because the wider parts represents the longer fingers and the thumb (supposedly, first time I consciously think about it). The palm is just solid and flat, unlike a real hand, but I don't think that detracts from the articulation at all, because of the range of movement in the fingers and thumb. Build the Robot Hand and investigate what pressure is needed to hold different objects without dropping or crushing them.If these cookies are not allowed, some or all of these services may not work or may not work properly. It is used to hold weapons (such as the Part x1740), objects and tools (such as a cup) or LEGO bricks. The last few years have seen massive jumps in terms of minifig detail, first dual molded arms and legs, now side and toe printing on legs, (the new Sam Wilson cap looks amazing and is what got me thinking about this) and all that’s really left to improve is the hands, either dual molded or printed, or both.

I just showed someone, who knows hardly anything about Lego, a minifigure with its hands orientated differently and she said the flat-topped, wider section up hand looked better. With the exception of some parts towards the middle of the hand, the dark red coloring is all pieces like the fingertips or exterior panels stuck on top of structure. I've always been confused as to what the "correct" orientation of a minifigure's hands is, particularly when holding utensils. I find that the design and articulation of human prosthesis very interesting, and would be very beautiful in LEGO form.

I've just given it a try with a minifig holding a goblet, and there's definitely a difference in how "active" the goblet is. The loose LEGO is amazing, contains so many different elements for anyone bulking out their own collection.
