We all know how this ends. I believe Jaws was the first movie I saw in the theater. Since I was a small child at the time, that speaks of how relaxed they were about letting kids into the theater and…could also explain a lot about how I turned out. The 45th anniversary of this pivotal movie just passed and Arco Noide celebrates with this LEGO version of Quint’s boat. Although Quint is a tough as nails old salt with one of the most memorable intros in movie history, (spoiler alert!) things eventually don’t go well for Quint and his little boat. Still, this is a stunning tribute to the craft. I like how two sets of cattle horns create shark jaws just forward of the ship’s wheel. Judging by the four yellow barrels still present, we have about an hour before things go really sour for Quint. We’re gonna need a bigger boat indeed.
Chris McVeigh has mimicked the classic ‘Jaws’ poster and shown us what goes on inside the fevered mind of the world’s whiniest Jedi. Swim, Luke, swim!
Brilliant official LEGO Designer, Adam Grabowski (Misterzumbi), created this minifig scale version of the “Orca” from Steven Spielberg’s JAWS six years ago, and has only now gotten around to sharing it with the world. I’d say the reason he works for LEGO making many of our favorite sets is pretty obvious. Well played Misterzumbi.
Chris “Lucifer” Adams has recreated the iconic movie poster from Jaws in fully three-dimensional LEGO form, complete with bubbles of air and a hapless swimmer.
My favorite is The Simpsons Movie, proving once again that simplicity is often the best policy — that’s one round tile and 40% of a minifig torso assembly.
Here’s Reservoir Dogs and an Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull teaser poster:
Finally, another favorite, Jaws:
