If you’re not that into this new LEGO creation by Corvus Auriac then here are some cute doggies for you. However, you know how some people have a tennis ball hanging in their garage that indicates that sweet spot to park your car? Well, in my household that aforementioned tennis ball is a severed doll’s head because, as it turns out, I’m one of those people. So, you can come to the logical conclusion that I’d be way into this. And if you’re even just a bit like me (you know who you are!) you’re probably way into it too. Corvus calls it Heart Artifact. This builder tends to like things on the creepy side, which is just the thing to make my dark heart go pitter-patter. If you’re like me you should still also check out the cute doggies though because even dark and brooding weirdos love puppies.
How many of you have had that dream where you’re a muscular and shirtless demon-lord clad in black leather pants and sitting atop a throne of skulls of all the souls you have vanquished? You know….the one where you’re in a hellish, burning landscape and the sky rains kerosene while Motorhead or Mastodon blares at ear-splitting volume from some unknown source. Wait, none of you? Wow, you people are weird! That is like my most recurring dream, besides the one where I’m taking final exams only to find that everyone else is naked except me. I’m sure Cid Hsiao likely knows what I’m talking about as evidenced by this recent creation.
Devilman is a Japanese manga series, first written and illustrated by Go Nagai in 1972. The dark storyline made it stand apart from other manga of the time. Here we see Akira/Devilman stepping on the skull of a three-eyed hell-beast. There are multiple horns and sets of bat wings adorning this model but the most impressive by far are the dark red folding dragon wings found only in the Hobbit LEGO set 79018 The Lonely Mountain. While Cid’s days may or may not be fueled by heavy metal music, you should check out the rest of his creations as they are still worthy of my darkest and weirdest dreams.
