Those of us of a certain age remember going to Blockbuster on a Friday night to pick out movies to watch over the weekend. LEGO legend Nathan Proudlove is clearly of that age. I know this because he’s my buddy and we have some history, he and I. It’s good to see that while he may be getting older, (aren’t we all?) he’s still finding clever ways to wow us with bricks. This time he hits us in the nostalgic feels with the iconic video cassette case from the now-defunct Blockbuster Video. I’m loving the blocky yellow font against the bright blue field. Even the little round semi-circular notch brings back fond memories of a bygone era.
If you have a keen eye you’d see that the binding features Nathan’s last name. That’s neat enough in itself. But wait, there’s more!
When you open the case you are treated to a pop-up Blockbuster store, just like the brick-and-mortar establishments we used to visit way back then! The minifig leaving the store with his purchase in hand, I like to imagine anyway, just might be a younger version of Nathan. Thanks, for the memories, old chum!
