Brickmania’s Ghost Of Kyiv Ukrainian Pilot custom minifig arrives at 8:00 AM CDT on June 1, 2022 on brickmania.com under the Ukraine Benefit tab. As with previous related items, proceeds will benefit the Wingmen for Ukraine, Direct Relief, and the Ukrainian Red Cross. As of May 28, 2022, the donations sent have totaled $111,831.22.
However, unlike previous Ukrainian Benefit items, the Ghost Of Kyiv Ukrainian Pilot custom minifig was designed in collaboration with the real life pilots of the 40th Tactical Aviation Brigade. Proceeds from the sale of this figure will benefit the Ukrainian Air Force via the charity “Wingmen for Ukraine” comprised of off-duty members of the US Air Force and their spouses and allies.
Our minifig is a tribute to the brave pilots that continually risk their lives for defense of freedom in Ukraine. Featuring an accurate Ukrainian pilot uniform designed by Lando in consultation with Ukrainian MiG-29 pilots currently on the front lines. The figure features modeled elements, and extremely detailed printing, designed and manufactured at Brickmania HQ.
On social media, the “Ghost of Kyiv” is a military hero, an ace fighter pilot hailed for shooting down multiple Russian planes. The tales began just days into the war and circulated for months, bolstered by official Ukrainian accounts.
We thank you for your support of this endeavor and for your support of the Ukrainian people. Slava Ukraini!
