Talented sculptor Mike Nieves has put together an impressive Rapidash creation that uses almost no traditional Lego bricks.

It reminds me of a much more adorable Thestral from the Harry Potter universe that happens to be on fire. It uses parts from the Lego Bionicle sets to create a curvier creature than typical Lego bricks allow. The Pokéball in the corner is a nice touch.

Nieves has made more video game inspired Lego creations. You can see his Arcanine, Scizor, Starcraft Mutalisk and Hydralisk, and Halo Spartan by following the links.
