A full size, functional Fat Man from Fallout 4, recreated in LEGO

Fallout is a franchise of iconography. The power armour, the Pip-Boy, Vault Boy…. everything is just so recognizable. But, in terms of weapons, one sits on the top of the pile for being the most memorable, and destructive. I’m of course talking about the Fat Man, the tactical nuclear catapult that has been every wasteland-wanderer’s ultimate weapon for years now.

ZaziNombies has brought us a Fallout 4 variant of the Fat Man, in true 1:1 scale with an actual firing mechanism.

This Fat Man is more than 2 500 pieces, over 4 feet / 1.2 metres, and weighs in at more than 10 pounds / 4.5 kilograms. Even the Mini Nuke ammo is a real LEGO piece in the form of the giant zeppelin piece from 5956-1: Expedition Balloon.

All that’s left to do now is find some Super Mutants to turn into paste.
