If there’s one thing I love more than a beautiful LEGO model, it’s a collection of beautiful LEGO models. Inspired by the Harry Potter vignettes we featured earlier in the year, John Klapheke wanted to build a series of something he was fairly knowledgeable about. The mission John set for himself was to create six vignettes for each of the Indiana Jones movies, each set on a 12×12-stud base.
At first, he was pretty adamant about keeping the entire scene confined to those dimensions. Later, with the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull creations, he relented and let some detail spill over (and sometimes through) the sides of the base. John says “aiming for consistency” was the unique challenge of a project of two dozen separate, yet interconnected creations.
So without further ado, here is a selection of some of the incredible scenes John has created.
“You wait here.”
“They’re digging in the wrong place.”
“Chilled Monkey Brain.”
“To get out, you must take the left tunnel.”
“The floor’s on fire.”
“He chose poorly.”
“No defiant last words Dr. Jones?
“Dasvidania Dr. Jones.”
