“Farewell and adieu to you fair Spanish ladies...”

LEGO builder BrickiboT pays homage to Stephen Spielberg’s Jaws movie and demonstrates why an entire generation was afraid to go into the water. Tough-as-nails shark hunter Quint was responsible for some of the movie’s most memorable scenes. When he slowly scratched his nails across a chalkboard, it simultaneously agonized audiences and cemented one of the most memorable character introductions in movie history. His off-color sea shanties were also kinda endearing but alas this shark-obsessed Ahab of the Spielberg world met a grizzly demise as illustrated in this diorama. Quint was quite the scene-chewer, in fact, but, as fate would have it, Jaws would become quite the (ahem) Quint-chewer. Sorry. I’ll just let myself out. Farewell and adieu to you fair Spanish ladies…


We’re gonna need a bigger boat!

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.

Luke's Fever Dream

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!

We’re Going to Need A Bigger Boat...

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.



3D Jaws movie poster built from LEGO makes it dangerous to go in the LEGO room

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.

Here’s another innovative piece from Alex Schranz (Orion Pax), depicting the Jaws poster in 3D. Many Patricks were decapitated in the making of this creation.

I think he’s come back for his noon feeding!

Adam Grabowski (Mister Zumbi) puts Quint, Hooper, and Brody aboard a vessel slightly too small for the job at hand — a certain boat named Orca.

I love this simple shot that mimics the Jaws movie poster:

Thanks to Bruce and Hendrik for the link!

Spider-pig, Spider-pig...

In response to our recent post about ImpreSariO’s movie posters, reader Craig sends word of his own set of LEGO movie posters.

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:
