The fifth horseman of the Apocalypse?

I’m usually sad when quality animated shows reach their end. And sadness is an emotion often associated with Bojack Horseman. That show covered some pretty important topics like depression and addiction and is generally regarded as one of the best television series from the 2010s. Sure, the show may be ending, but not everything has to be a downer. Iain Heath brings us a LEGO version of Bojack who’s every bit as charismatic as his animated counterpart.

It’s the subtle craftsmanship that won me over on this build. 1×1 bricks with Technic holes serve multiple uses, providing a good SNOT connection on Bojack’s nose and implying a camera on his phone. The arms are posed at interesting angles, and even his shoes are stand-out mini-builds. And, of course, the head is a study in creative slopes and tiling.

This Bojack isn’t a one-trick-pony, either. A quick rebuild of the eyes using headlight bricks and printed 1×1 round tiles gives Bojack an additional range of expression.

Maybe it’s just me, but he still looks kinda depressed. Oh well. At least that’s series-accurate.

Kane’s fateful first contact with a Xenomorph egg in Alien built from LEGO

Today marks the 40th anniversary of the theatrical release of Ridley Scott’s Alien — a ground-breaking sci-fi movie that has been giving film-goers nightmares the world over. This LEGO scene built by TBB’s own Iain Heath shows crewmember Kane making one of the most obvious blunders in movie history — discovering an entire room filled with egg-like shapes, and seeing one of those ominous shapes opening up like a death flower, decides to reach out to touch it.
