It seems that Sneakerheads have found a new way to collect their favorite classic designs without devastating their bank accounts. Ever since the introduction of the LEGO 10282 Adidas Originals Superstar set, I’ve personally been looking forward to seeing how sneaker fanatics would adapt their own bricks into iconic shoes from the past and present. Builder John Huang is one such inspired fan. He’s made a few different sneakers so far but this Adidas Stan Smith model is the first to feature a brick-built display. The shoe itself is well built, capturing the sleek, simple design of its namesake and its patch of vivid green on the heel. The display stand for the shoe is based on the lid of an Adidas shoebox and John did a great job at capturing the angles of the iconic Adidas stripes, as well as the logo on the sides of the lid.
The Fujifilm X100 Series is an iconic camera line, and builder John Huang has given it an equally iconic LEGO treatment. Curved slope tiles in grey and black give the housing clean edges and lines. A minifigure frying pan makes a great stand-in for the viewfinder selector switch, and a Technic gear forms the shutter speed dial.
As nice as those details are, the viewfinder on this one is really a cut above. It’s also cool to see the lens housing rotated and sitting at a tilted angle; it makes this feel even more like a functional piece of camera equipment. I’m just loving all these 1:1 scale LEGO cameras lately, but this one makes me particularly happy.
