A creature double-feature!

You don’t know how long I’ve been waiting for this; someone build two similar scale, similar quality classic movie monsters in a row so that I can use this title and opening theme music to evoke a sense of nostalgia for childhood monster movies. Brilliant, right? The team over at Build Better Bricks have answered all my monstrous wishes with this electrifying Frankenstein Monster and savage Werewolf and finally my mad scheme has come to fruition. (Muah-hah-hah!) The fact that it happened right before Halloween is just icing on the delicious ghoulish cake.

Now that this plan has been fulfilled it seems much less diabolical than I had initially imagined. I suppose I would make a terrible Bond villain then. But still, didn’t it get you in the mood to watch two campy monster classics in a row? It did for me.

Frankenstein: a monster made from many parts

Taking on the mantle of the good Doctor Victor Frankenstein, Dogod Brick Designs has stitched together his very own monster. LEGO bricks, as it turns out, are extremely well suited to depicting the square-headed Boris Karloff take on Mary Shelley’s doomed character.

Built in the sallow register of grey and black, the tragic creature’s heavy features are atmospherically lit from above to eerie effect.
