It’s the return of Jafar, depicted in LEGO by cid hsiao. The wicked vizier, here in his evil genie form, is immediately recognisable — no mean feat when you consider the model’s scale and the mix of System bricks and Bionicle-style parts used to create the features. I love the sense of escaping energy as the genie bursts from his imprisonment within the lamp — nice use of the big flame parts, and ice cream scoop pieces for smoke.
If you’re going to be stuck in a lamp for a millennium, you might as well make it a nice lamp. LEGO 7 understands this, and has designed his version of the Genie’s lamp from Aladdin with an elegant twist — it’s now a high flying magical machine!
On the flip side however, you might just rue the day until you can escape from your lamp to get revenge on all your enemies. Cid Hsiao has built a depiction of just that, the scene in which the evil genie Jafar, set free from his lamp-imprisonment, tries to destroy Aladdin once again.
