If this isn’t enough, here’s more than you ever wanted to know about me.

Here’s stuff I’ve created or have been involved with over the years.

I’m not looking for a job at the moment, so my resume is not well maintained.

  1. Hello Mr. Fong,

    I came across your DC Comics LEGO figures on the Comics Alliance website, and I have sort of a strange request. Is there any way I could commission and purchase a Superman, Batgirl/woman, and Robin from you? The reason I ask is that I am getting married in mid-March and I’m lucky enough to find a woman who not only digs LEGOS but is appreciative of comics. She’s a huge Batman fan, and I’m proud to say she consumed my Sandman volumes after I introduced them to her. We wanted to have our cake topper be LEGO figures of Superman (me), Batgirl/woman-the Barbera Gordon look (my fiance), and Robin (my son) to put on the cake. After reading the articles on CA, I just love your work and it would mean a lot to us.

    Thank you for your time.

  2. Hey, I like the custom lego Batgirl you created. Any chance you can do another one but with her as a brunette? I’m planning my wedding and would like it as part of the cake. Let me know if you’re willing and how much to commission the work.

    Thank you so much,

  3. The plugin supports Forsyth-Edwards Notation (FEN), which allows for descriptions of arbitrary starting positions – this is useful for setting up chess problems which are outside normal play. The plugin also fully supports Fischer Random Chess (Chess960) and the castling rules specific to that variant. As an example, here is the position after 7 moves for the final match of the Mainz Chess Classic Chess960 tournament in 2007 between Viswanathan Anand and Levon Aronian. The opening position is described using the FEN tag:
    [FEN "rnbkqnrb/pppppppp/8/8/8/8/PPPPPPPP/RNBKQNRB w KQkq - 0 1"]
    I fail to succeed.Could you tell me should I insert:
    1.only [FEN "rnbkqnrb/pppppppp/8/8/8/8/PPPPPPPP/RNBKQNRB w KQkq - 0 1"]in html in word press(but the trial failed)
    2.only .only [FEN "rnbkqnrb/pppppppp/8/8/8/8/PPPPPPPP/RNBKQNRB w KQkq - 0 1"] in visual(also failed)
    3.Or between [FEN "rnbkqnrb/pppppppp/8/8/8/8/PPPPPPPP/RNBKQNRB w KQkq - 0 1"] (also failed only a chessboard.
    What shall I do?

  5. Hi fella,
    I’m a lego animator (see website) and have been thinking recently about making a Street Fighter II brick film.
    Your minifig designs for the various S.F. characters are the best I’ve found and I was wondering if there was any way we could work together. Let me know your thoughts, I’m not asking to borrow them so much as perhaps get an idea of how they were made. However much input you would like to make would be very appreciated and of course you’d be mentioned in the credits.
