Builder spotlight: Orion Pax and his pop culture extravaganza

LEGO builds of movies and TV are kind of a big deal. Everybody builds something from their favourite media, be it a character, vehicle, location, or a whole scene. Some people do it so consistency and with quality that their creations become icons in the community. This is where builder and LEGO Masters Germany contestant Alex Jones (Orion Pax) comes in. I recall seeing his numerous Transformers builds as early as ten years ago. Since then, he has graced us with a wide variety of wonderful vehicles from movies and TV shows. Not only that, he also built replica objects from the ’80s. And now, Alex shows them all off on his brand new website.

If these recognisable vehicles don’t already grab your attention, then perhaps the bright colours and accurate shaping will have you taking a closer look. Alex builds super clean like a lot of us do nowadays, and perhaps that’s part of the appeal with his models. Yet, his creations aren’t the most complex builds ever, he emulates LEGO’s own design philosophy to keep things simple. After all, his models are meant to be built by people.

We’re big fans of Alex here at TBB, and we have covered his creations before. Recently we wrote about his outstanding Delorean, and prior to that we gushed about his collection of classic Transformers as well as his literal transformation of LEGO’s 10252 Volkswagen Beetle into Generation 1 Bumblebee. Even ages ago, we wrote about his Nautilus from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and his Castle Grayskull from Masters of the Universe.

Check out Alex’s builds, in-depth descriptions, and building instructions on his brand new website.
