One of the more memorable scenes in The Last Jedi was The Battle of Crait. Now someone has replicated the scene in LEGO form. That someone must be one of a handful people that actually enjoyed the movie.
While everyone is waiting for more Game of Thrones on HBO, and for George R.R. Martin to finish his next book, we need something to occupy our time. How about this awesome LEGO version of the Red Keep Throne Room from Game of Thrones?
It was created by Chicago software engineer Matt Omori, who spent over a year building it.
We’ve seen plenty of Super Mario Bros. dioramas, but most of them just stand still. Not this one. Jason Cichon created an actual moving side-scroller based on the classic Nintendo game, using LEGO bricks as his medium.
It took Jason eight days to build this after designing it and waiting for the parts.
Did you know that Metroid turned 30 this year? Time flies when you are battling parasites and other nasties. Well, for the anniversary, Jared Rosenblitt built this awesome diorama recreating the big boss battle with the Parasite Queen.
For those of you who don’t know, this is the very first boss fight in the Game Cube classic, Metroid Prime.
LEGO fans – and LEGO itself – love to create dioramas of Batman’s headquarters. But Flickr user Dayton aka Forgotten Days turned his attention to the villainous hive that is the Arkham Asylum.
Dayton says he’s wanted to build the infamous hospital for years.
Earlier this year, BigBoysToys launched its Street Fighter The New Challenger line with a kick ass Ryu figure. The toy maker has stayed busy and has since released a Ken figure and a Chun-li figure. Like Ryu, both collectibles have light up effects integrated into their respective diorama stands.
You can pre-order both figures from Play–Asia for $90 (USD) each or as a bundle for only $160.
Marc Hagan-Guirey aka Paper Dandy specializes in kirigami, a variation of origami that allows for cutting paper as opposed to just folding it. Marc and his skills became well known when his haunted house kirigami went viral back in 2012.
We already saw a fan-made LEGO Cacodemon in Iain Heath’s Doom diorama, but this MOC by Flickr member Jerac is as gory as the game and really nails the look of the lightning-belching monster. Jerac says he had to resort to “illegal techniques” such as cutting and bending pieces to create the Cacodemon.
Let’s go to Jerac’s Flickr page and stare at Doom Guy’s guts some more.
Hong Kong-based toymaker BigBoysToys is working on the next best thing to Street Fighter Amiibo. Its Street Fighter TNC line feature miniature figurines of the World Warriors, with a diorama stand as well as lights and sound effects.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve never seen a LEGO machine like this. It’s a custom built animatronic coin-operated machine and it is a lovely sight to see it in action. Just put your coin in and watch the little LEGO people come to life.
Game of Thrones fans will recognize this diorama straight away. It’s the Wall and Castle Black from the popular HBO series. The massive snow and ice construct from the series was recreated here with lots of white bricks.
November 1st was Ewok Appreciation Day. Yeah, it was new to me too. C-3PO must have started it so he could be worshiped. Ewoks first appeared in 1983 in the movie Return of the Jedi. Many fans did not like them since they were obviously there for the kids and for Lucas to make toy money, though they’ve sort of grown on some folks over the years.
Forget cutesy LEGO games like Indiana Jones, I want LEGO DOOM. I loved DOOM on the PC, even though it scared the crap out of me regularly and made me jump like a child. I think DOOM is one of the most memorable of all the shooters I played back in the day.
Ain’t much Matt De Lanoy can’t handle with LEGO and creativity in hand. Matt aka Pepa Quin built this sweet diorama based on one of the early levels in Bastion. Matt built it as part of his Iron Builder entry.
Here’s a closer look at Matt’s take on the Kid and the gasfellas.
The reader wants to see better shots of the diorama.
The late Don Ivan Punchatz’s cover art for Doom is as memorable as the game itself. Gaming Heads immortalized the illustration with this badass resin diorama. It’s called Doom: Knee Deep in the Dead, and it comes in two variants.
Filmmaker Andy Jarosz likes to make miniature sets in his spare time. He recently spoke with Game Informer to show off his latest work – a 1:26 scale replica of a set in Bioshock. Andy 3D printed the Little Sisters and the Gatherer’s Garden vending machine, but most of the pieces were made from “all manner of materials and tools.”
