The good folks of KC Bricklab have come a long way since they started the Kansas City-based LEGO club five years ago. Their most recent exploit is an incredible journey through the half live-action, half-animated feature film Who Framed Roger Rabbit. The 1988 Robert Zemeckis film is filled with hairy escapades, quick humor, and more than a bit of weirdness, and at 8 by 16 feet, KC Bricklab’s display brings it all to life.
The display was a collaborative effort by 19 members of KC Bricklab, and contains the zany mainstreet of Toontown, the huge Acme factory warehouse, and a bit of psychedelic forest among other scenes.
KC Bricklab began planning the build in December of 2016, and had it completed in time for display at Chicago’s Brickworld LEGO convention in June. Although the club meets monthly, most of the planning was done virtually, and the finished display for the convention was the first time the builders got to see the full layout assembled.
The layout has a train running throughout, and numerous motorized elements, including this crazy squad of singing trees.
While most of the display is minifigure scale, a few key props were also constructed, such as this Toon pistol and posse of Dumb Dumb bullets. And of course, there’s the big mosaic that serves as the signpost for the build.
Special thanks to KC Bricklab members Shawn Kelly and Matt Parks for the photos.
