The TV show Breaking Bad showed us chemistry-teacher-turned-drug-kingpin Walter White’s descent from sympathetic protagonist to monstrous antagonist over its run, and the ever-talented LEGO 7 has rendered the self-styled Heisenberg in brick form here at the peak of his meth-cooking days. Like the famously blue 99.1% chemically pure meth, this model has all the right ingredients to be a hit.
I absolutely love the use of the trans-clear Bionicle tooth for the chemical pouring into the pot, although I think the standout parts usage here is the trans-black windscreen 3x4x3 which expertly replicates the protective face mask of Walt’s meth-cookin’ outfit. Enjoy a bonus shot of this brilliant model with the facemask up to appreciate the work recreating Walt’s distinct glasses, goatee, and shaved head.
Have you ever wanted to cook your own tiny, 99.1% chemically-pure LEGO crystal meth? Well now you can with the LEGO Superlab from the TV show Breaking Bad! Builder Paul Trach packed an incredible amount of detail into this scene. My favorites include the utility sinks (made with cupboards turned on their backs) and the tiny barrels of phenylacetic acid made with 2×2 black round bricks and three yellow rubber bands (And yes, I imagine they are each stamped with tiny, little bee logos). Perhaps most impressive is the fact that Paul created a spot-on Walter White with just a simple yellow shirt, pants, and blue gloves (no fancy hazmat suit required).

There are some places where LEGO won’t dare to go, and that’s where the fans fill in the gaps. Citizen Bricks released a Breaking Bad playset featuring their printed elements and exclusive minifigures. The cost is $250, but if you’re an addicted fan, how can you resist?
Ever wondered what it would look like if LEGO made a video game of Breaking Bad? Here’s what Brian Anderson came up with.
