These custom Time Bandits Minifigures take inspiration from the 1981 British fantasy film Time Bandits which was produced and directed by Terry Gilliam, and starred Sean Connery, John Cleese, Shelley Duvall, Ralph Richardson, Katherine Helmond, Ian Holm, Michael Palin, David Warner, and Craig Warnock.

Kevin learns that the dwarves, named Randall (the self-proclaimed leader), Fidgit, Strutter, Og, Wally, and Vermin, were employees of the Supreme Being, the creator of “all the big stuff” in the universe, while it was the regular job of the dwarves to create small bushes and trees. After designing a particularly foul-smelling tree, the dwarves were demoted to the job of repairing holes in the spacetime fabric. Instead, however, they spitefully stole the map of the holes’ locations, which they are now using to travel around, stealing treasures from across history. Meanwhile, in secret, this journey is being observed via mystical powers by a malevolent sorcerer, known simply as Evil, who seeks the map for himself to recreate the universe to his liking.

Using various parts from other LEGO minifigures these custom minifigs are nicely done and the combinations work well producing a great MOC (My OWN Creation).
