This extremely clever design for a minifig-scale LEGO coat rack makes use of some newer parts that you probably don't have. The effect is worth it though, even if you don't have that part on the top or the base (I don't either). It's also surprising to me that the color scheme works too - it's hard enough just to keep track of new elements, never mind finding them all in just the right color. I love the way that minifig torsos with the hands removed are used as coats. I'm guessing it wouldn't be too hard to copy that technique and the hanger technique on a coat rack of a less conventional shape, but this is really an exceptional model.
