Tag Archives: Diorama

There’s nothing like a massive LEGO diorama to prove that you’ve arrived as a LEGO builder. The LEGO dioramas we feature here span everything from realistic medieval castles to scenes from World War II, and more than a few post-apocalyptic wastelands.

What Once Was

Of his latest creation, Gabe Umland says “For some reason post-apoc has fallen out of style, but it doesn’t mean it’s not still cool”. So true! Inspired by this drawing from DeviantArt member Dumitrescu Ioan, Gabe’s diorama captures the ramshackle world of repurposed ship parts on the bed of a long dried-up ocean:

But it’s all the little details that make a scene like this more interesting – and warrant a closer look – right down to the very comfortable-looking interior of an old shipping container:

 

We Can Do It!

I built a factory diorama for my T-47 Sheridan walking tank a few weeks ago. Of course, as the style of the build is alternate WWII, the workers in the factory are all female. As it’s Labor Day here in the US, it seemed like the perfect day to post this diorama, and celebrate the achievements of the American worker.

Mischievous Monkeys

Grant Davis gives us an interesting view in the life of monkeys in this delightful vignette:

We’re left up to our own imagination to explain what’s going on. And while we’re thinking up our story you start to realize all the wonderful details that Grant has put into the backdrop: the effective floor tiling, rockwork, complex walls, and even the doorway arch… there’s so much I love about this silly build.

The Long Mechanical Steam-Powered Arm of the Law

Ever wondered what a steampunk SWAT team bust would look like? Well, I think it might look a little something like this charmingly titled diorama by Logan (captaininfinity), “The Grand Arrest of Professor Filius Bertram.” It’s not every day we get a cool steampunk diorama that includes an airship, a tank, and a legged vehicle, all of which come together with the help of copious quantities of earth-toned elements.
