What’s the only way to make a T-Rex more fearsome? Place him at the controls of a giant Godzilla-esque mechanoid! If you take a close look at the pilot’s cockpit of Simon Liu‘s impressive LEGO technobeast, you’ll spot Rex from Toy Story at the helm. You don’t need to get this little joke to be impressed by this creation and its wrecked-city diorama surroundings, but it’s details and touches of humour like this which elevate the best LEGO models into something special. The texture and mechanical-looking greebles prevent the central robot from just being a big mass of grey (always a danger with a one-colour model), and the ruined buildings are brilliantly done, creating an appropriate sense of urban destruction. The addition of Buzz Lightyear facing down Rex’s new toy, along with a bunch of fleeing claw-machine aliens, adds some welcome splashes of colour amidst the rubble.
Live from the show floor at the 2019 New York Toy Fair, we’re bringing you all the new product reveals from Toy Story 4, available starting in April. The sets include carnival rides, an RV adventure, and characters new and old.
Matt De Lanoy (Pepa Quin) built Andy’s room in minifig scale – Toy Story minifig scale, that is. This magnificent build is a full 30″x30″. Scaled to real world sizes, that makes Andy’s room 16’x16′. That’s a pretty decently sized room!
It’s the details that make this build particularly impressive – and deceptive. Thankfully, Matt’s photographed some of the best parts of the room so we can get a good, up-close look at the details. Check the photos out, along with a toy’s eye view video, below the jump!
