Johnny 5 robot from Short Circuit

Inspired and influenced by Steven Marshall’s Johnny 5 robot from the movie Short Circuit, Brickshelf user rack911 has constructed an equally amazing model of Johnny 5. Check out the gallery for some cool mechanical detail pictures.

    It’s a great model, but images at 2560×1920 pixels? Just another of the reason I no longer visit Brickshelf. Come on, it’s not hard to resize JPGs, please!

    This is an absolutely amazing piece of work.

    Thanks guys. I’m posting this up on my blog too (credited of course). Way too cool!


    Hey Steven Marshall,

    Can i bother you with instructions for your awesome version of johnny 5? :)

    I cant find a way to e-mail you, what is your e-mail addy?

    you can send me the instructions at if you wouldn’t mind.

    :) I’m going to go to the lego store and get some bricks and make a custom color johnny five :D

    Okay, to all of you who’ve asked for instructions… :)

    Most LEGO builders simply build to create something for themselves (and share it with the world), and don’t provide instructions. Creating instructions is very time-consuming, and some people who’ve done so have been burned in the past by having their instructions or designs sold on places like eBay without their permission.

    Both Steven and rack911 are good examples of builders who’ve looked at someone else’s design, figured out how to recreate it (without instructions!), and done so extremely well. Steven has built homages to a car designed by the Arvo brothers, and of course rack911 has built Steven’s Johnny 5.

    If you’re interested in recreating a design you see here on The Brothers Brick, I’d strongly encourage you just to break out your box of bricks and start playing around. :-D

    THAT’S RAD!!!

    I can’t wait for the new Short Circuit. Johnny Five is the best! That Wall-e looks like a cheap rip-off… I also just got a copy of Short Circuit on Blu-Ray. The sound and picture quality is sooo amazing!!! It was like being a kid again and watching it for the first time in theaters.
