So I was approached by a co-worker recently who was aware of my minor obsession with making crochet Sackboy dolls from the PS3 game, Little Big Planet.

Well, this co-worker wanted a Sackboy, too, but not just any basic old Sackboy.

She wanted one dressed like Mr. Spock from Star Trek.

"OMG", thought I. "How funny would a SPOCKboy be?"

After a bit of planning, a bit of improvisation (I heavily modified RichmondArt's Crochet Sackboy pattern from Etsy--Pretty much only the arms are unchanged, and even they have extra rounds and length added to increase size), and about a day of work, here he is:

I'm seriously considering a Sackboy Data next, because he's my fave, though Capt. Picard is tempting, too. Smiley

Actually, I need to do something for the Discworld swap, so the next one will probably be a Nac Mac Feegle or another DW character.

I know. No creature on Earth does the "Stupid human!" look better than a cat.

So cute!  You should stitch the first two and second two fingers together so that he can give the "Live long and prosper" sign!

And I vote for Data next!

Thanks for all of the kind comments. Cheesy

Here are the notes I made in my Ravelry project page for this little guy:

The head is completely my own design and was made in five pieces: main head, 2 ears, black mouth insert, and black hairpiece. I used the size F hook on all of these parts. Yarns used were Bernat Satin (Sable) and Red Heart Saver (Black).

The body was made in the round using the size H hook starting with a magic ring in Lion Brand Suede yarn (Denim) and continuing down to the waistline where I switched to the black acrylic yarn to match the legs. I changed the legs as well to look more like the in-game Sackboys more gradually increased foot base instead of the bell-like shape in the original pattern.

The Starfleet comm badge and trim on the arms were crocheted out of silver DMC floss using the size C hook.

The doll stands (wobbily) 9.5" tall and has red adzuki beans in pantyhose in his legs for weight as well as quarters at the bottoms of his feet to keep the discs flat.

Thanks so much!

Now that I've seen the new Trek Movie, I might do another one of Spock with the grumpy face I used on Kratos.

Data and Worf are still on the list, too. LOVE Data.
