It counts as one of Only Fools & Horses’ most iconic scenes: Del Boy Trotter trying to ‘play it cool’ in the Nag’s Head pub before falling through the bar as he attempts to catch the eye of some female drinkers.
Now a super fan has recreated that hilarious moment from the 1989 episode ‘Yuppy Love’ and many others – using only Lego.
Only Fools and Horses ‘addict’ Saso Zibert, 35 customises Lego figures to make them look like legendary characters Del Boy and Rodney as well as Uncle Albert, Grandad and Trigger holding his well-used broom and even built Trotter’s recognisable council flat in Nelson Mandela House entirely out of Lego bricks.
Mr Zibert who is an artist from Slovenia said: ‘The project came about due to me having a large collection of Lego and also being an Only Fools and Horses addict.’
Saso Zibert’s attention to detail makes the scenes come to life and this was one of his favourite to create (Pictured) Del Boy and Trigger during the famous ‘falling through the bar’ scene in the 1989 episode Yuppy Love

In Slovenia where re-runs of the BBC sitcom are shown repeatedly Zibert said: ‘I have been a fan since the first time I saw it as a teenager. I watch it regularly, from the first episode to last. It is still on television to this day here with subtitles.’
He could not recreate the 80s series scenes without props and Zibert has made plenty of minature pint glasses, tiny ashtrays and even mini betting chips to further add to the authenticity of the comic scenes.
Recognisable props such as tiny plastic cups, a broom and a chandelier are key for the scenarios that the wheeler-dealer pub-loving Lego men get themselves in to.
Zibert recreates some of the most hilarious moments from the legendary sitcom such as the memorable scene where Del falls through a bar, the 1996 Batman and Robin episode and the one with the chandelier.
The well-loved episode where Del’s love interest Raquel performs a duet with cheesy club singer Tony Angelino only to realise he cannot pronounce his ‘R’s’ is even immortalised in Lego.
As for best episodes, the artist admits that: ‘One of my favourites is Yuppy Love when Del falls through the bar.
Zibert’s artistry is on full show in his Lego take on the famous poker game between Del and Boycie which was first broadcast in 1982.

Zibert uses his own materials to capture scenes of the classic comedy but found this scene the hardest because: ‘It is hard to make the Lego Batman and Robin look like anybody else’

Mr Zibert found a gap in the Lego products as he said: ‘Since Lego doesn’t do Only Fools and Horses I said to myself I will give it a go.
‘I customise the Lego characters according to different scenes and I use photos of the scenes to work from.
As for the most challenging scene to make, Zibert said: ‘One of the hardest was probably trying to make Del and Rodney look like Batman and Robin, just because it is hard to make the Lego Batman and Robin look like anybody else.
‘I post pictures of my work on various Only Fools and Horses and the response I have has been amazing, even from some of the cast members.
Zibert hand paints the figures for extra detail such as Triggers medal (pictured) The Lego version of the broom scene in 1996 episode Heroes and Villains where Trigger receives his medal from Councillor Murray
