Gorgon heads are traditionally pretty fantastic weapons for defeating mythological monsters, but they do have their drawbacks: namely, you’ve got to keep your eyes shut, so you’re never quite sure you’re pointed the right direction, as this lovely little vignette by workshysteve demonstrates.
Well, I won’t actually tell you — you’ll have to watch the show — but Thorsten Bonsch (Xenomurphy) has continued his series of scenes celebrating the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who with two scenes from the 2007 episode “Gridlock”.
First, Thorsten has recreated the incredible scene in which the Doctor and Martha encounter the world’s largest traffic jam:
But my favorite of Thorsten’s scenes so far is from the end of the same episode, in which the Doctor has an important encounter with the Face of Boe:
John Hammond would no doubt approve of this Jurassic Park vignette by Combee! who makes his first appearance on TBB. This build really captures the scene by reducing it to only the most essential elements. Also, the floating Hammond-head is a little creepy and it looks to me as if he’s about to consume the baby raptor. It is probably a good thing the builder chose not to use Dr. Sattler’s face, I’m not sure that her expression can be captured with LEGO.
Of course your first thought would be, “A Bug’s Life,” but beyond that, this little creature by Riccardo Zangelmi is a beautifully delicate creation. It is elegant in its minmal use of elements. I can imagine a series of vignettes based on the adventures of Tom the Ant. I wonder if it’s inspired by Tom Sawyer?
Hillel says, “Some details include presents, our three cats, all five family members, the menorah, the lit shamash (the candle you light the other candles with), soufganiot (jelly donuts – a holiday tradition), and a lit fire (thank you light brick). Enjoy!”
Hippotam‘s vignettes are always fascinating to look at. His latest shows off the barber’s new hair dryer along with a clever use of the Friends hairpieces.
