This was a collaborative build with David Costa. It was a lot of fun working with him, and the best thing about it is that instructions are available. Click the link below:
The LEGO® Movie was released on DVD and Blu-ray today and I got my copy! As I mentioned in a post when the movie was first released in theatres, a few of my MOCs made it into the movie. Now that the movie is out I was able to get some screenshots. Check them out below!
First we have my taco, which can be seen in the scene where Wyldstyle is encouraging the citizens of Bricksburg to fight back against Lord Business’ plan to rule the world. Two mini-figs can be seen carrying a deliciously huge taco across the plaza.
Next, we have my donut. When Will Farrell (a.k.a President Business/Lord Business/The Man Upstairs) is searching for the Kragle, the donut is visible on one of the shelves, in the bottom left of the screen.
My cow skull can be seen during the western vignette of the end credits.
What’s even better is seeing it right below the legendary Morgan Freeman’s name.
Lastly, my hot dog can also be seen in the movie vignette of the end credits, getting lathered with mustard and onions.
Comparably cool with having Morgan Freeman’s name above one of my MOCs is having the LEGO® name branded one of them.
There were a few more of my MOCs that were used on set for the live action scene that I haven’t yet been able to spot in the movie. My rubber ducky, however, did make into The LEGO® Movie Experience at LEGOLAND, California. If there are any other MOCs you noticed in the movie, be sure to let me know!
Tommy over at BrickNerd send me this photo of my donut and rubber ducky designs being used at The LEGO® Movie Experience at LEGOLAND, California. It’s a very convincing recreation of the set from the movie, and the rubber ducky and donut look pretty accurate, so kudos to the builders! I hope to see the exhibit soon! You can see more details on the event here.
Well, not Bruce, per se, but Bruce’s work…
The LEGO® Movie was released this past Friday, February 7th and I had the pleasure of seeing it on opening night with my wife and some friends. It was nice to see a few of my MOCs made it into the movie!
My donut (and a few others which I didn’t see on-screen) were used on set for a live action scene towards the end of the movie. My taco can be seen being carried by some mini-figures during the Taco Tuesday/TAKOS scene. During the end credits, my hot dog and cow skull can be seen a few times. As one might imagine, it’s pretty cool seeing one’s own work in any movie, but even more so THE LEGO® Movie, which is almost unanimously loved by both critics and viewers! One might even say that everything is AWESOME!
Say what you will, but I think my headshot is what sold the powers that be on my donut:
