If you look up Paul Hetherington in the dictionary you’ll find the definition to be builder of awesomely huge LEGO creations. Probably. I don’t know. Does anyone still have dictionaries anymore? Well, if we did, Paul’s smiling mug would be in it. The man has more talent in his little finger than most of us have in the rest of our fingers combined. Go ahead, look it up. I’ll wait. See? This time he takes us back to our childhoods and Saturday morning cartoons with this stunning Scooby-Doo diorama consisting of over 8000 pieces. Most of us would have just bought the Mystery Machine set from 2015 and called this case closed. But Paul integrates the iconic vehicle with an entire mystery mansion.
That specific font expertly crafted in orange nestled in lime and framed by dark purple really invokes the campy retro feeling of the cartoon.
The whole gang is here searching for clues on the overgrown front lawn. Have they spotted the ghost in the upper veranda yet? They’re totally going to freak out when they do! And Shaggy really has the munchies for some reason.
I love the olive green of the house and all the tiny details but my favorite part is the giant specter looming over the mansion. I can almost hear him say “and I would have gotten away with it too if it weren’t for you meddling kids!”
