With my latest creation in the Iron Mountain Legion theme, I wanted to add some levity. It’s a post apocalyptic military force, but I imagine their grip on historical record might be a bit lacking. I imagine them recovering a prewar robot, and deciding to turn it into an inspirational tool, as well as a Continue reading →
LEGO ApocaLEGO models on The Brothers Brick | Page 2
Zombie hordes, nuclear annihilation, rising sea levels, the monkeypox — the future doesn’t look too bright for all those smiling LEGO minifigs. But survivors abound in the post-apocalyptic wasteland, entrenched in well-guarded camps or on the road in crazy armored contraptions. Check out all these post-apoc models to see that there is indeed hope for LEGO humanity after all…
Brian (Âtin) uses microscale buildings and mountains in the background to create a fantastic forced-perspective diorama. Don’t miss Brian’s behind-the-scenes shots showing some interesting techniques for the road in particular.
I’m back from BrickCon, and ready to unveil the only new creation I’ve built since July. I had the funky idea to build this one evening, and actually had the time to do so. I figured that the post-apocalypse building scene could use a little more levity, and what’s better than cheerleaders to bring some Continue reading →
I’ve seen quite a few humorous uses of the ostrich head, but this robo-bird by Stuart Delahay is taking things to the next level. The backstory on MOCpages is quite hilarious as well, you should check it out.
Brian Kescenovitz (mondayn00dle) is another builder who probably has more works featured on our blog than not. What makes this creation unique is the combination of an emotionally arousing scene and backstory (yes, a Lego creation can be more than eye-candy). The rust stains on the rare Bionicle mask of the hardsuit mirrors the stains Continue reading →
Alex Eylar (Profound Whatever) recently rendered Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks in Lego, but this new development featuring zombies stole the show. Speaking of the dead, what does it have to do with these spacemen?
This one is mine, though. It’s an addition to the Iron Mountain Legion theme that I’ve been tinkering with on and off lately. I wanted to keep with the overall style of that theme, which meant large bulky armor pieces. It also requires somewhat comic proportions, hence the tall turret. I wanted this creation to Continue reading →
This friendly-looking zombie loves you. Naturally he loves you for your brains…but that’s what they all say. by Captain Spaulding
Justin Vaughn (Mainman) uses 1X2 transparent clear plates to sculpt this beautiful frozen waterfall. My favorite part is the rocks underneath the frozen ice. The angled cliffs flanking the fall greatly enhances the visual appeal of this creation.
Kevin Murney (legorevolution) apologizes in advance for ruining your childhood with this disturbingly apocafied rendition of Toy Story. The creation features Psycho Green Car, Gas Mask Woody, and Buzzsaw Buzz. I will not say more, I think you get the point.
This primopoc slave transport by Bart De Dobbelaer is continuing his streak of clever and silly scenes that are well executed. I too am a fan of primopoc, but not so much of slavery. After the point-counterpoint intellectual property editorials followed by two posts about modern military depictions, it seemed to be the responsible thing Continue reading →
Try as I might, all I can come up with are some really tacky bee-related jokes. But I dare not say them to Ryan Wood’s strangely adorable Primopoc Buzzer…but then again, I’m afraid of bees.
On the lighter end of the violence-in-LEGO spectrum, I’m predicting a new bandwagon started by KryptonHeidt. It’s called Primopoc, and it’s hilariously awesome. Primopoc combines the tired tropes of ApocaLEGO — chains, buzz saws, ladders, and Gatling guns — with LEGO Primo components from the late 90′s. In doing so, Primopoc undermines the seriousness of Continue reading →
Brandon Bannerman (Catsy) may live here in the warmer-than-average Pacific Northwest, but the recent snowstorms on the East Coast — and echoes of Snowpocalypse 2008 — have inspired him to build this scene for the ApocaLEGO Blood in the Snow contest. Brandon combines microscale with minifig-scale for some truly excellent forced perspective.
Carter Baldwin posted a creation a few days ago that’s feeling pretty relevant to me right now. Here in DC, we’re expecting a snowfall of up to two feet. While stuck inside, I’ve been splitting my time between building, and looking for things to blog here. Carter’s creation hit just the right cord for me. Continue reading →
