LEGO models can represent all kinds of different things, both imaginary and real. But this particular LEGO design takes on one of the more unpleasant sides of the real world – the seamy underbelly of society that is prison life.
Designed by LEGO fan GabKremo, this impressive maximum security prison model uses roughly 3000 bricks placed onto a 32×32 base panel. Outside, it’s got lots of neat details like a prison yard with barbed wire fencing, a prison transport bus, and a guard tower. The orange-jumpsuited minifigs even wear teensy handcuffs.
The interior is just as impressive, featuring cramped jail cells for its minifig inmates, a prison gym, kitchen, cafeteria, infirmary, and even a weapon armory for the guards. Naturally, all of the doors are made out of bars.
The subject matter of this model might not be the most kid-friendly LEGO design ever, but it’s still a really impressive build. If you’d like to see LEGO put this into production, show your support by casting your vote over on LEGO Ideas.
