A LEGO® recreation of the penultimate scene in ‘Deep Breath’, Peter Capaldi’s Doctor Who debut
A silly LEGO® model I made of the pre-credits scene from Peter Capaldi’s Doctor Who debut. I would have liked to have added fog, lighting effects and depth of field but Blender is mind-bendingly complicated and has an extremely steep learning curve.
Oh, and the TARDIS should probably have slime on it.
From The Guardian:
Centred around ‘inquiry-based learning’, the idea (behind Denmark’s LEGO® school) is that children are more motivated when they generate their own questions. As one prospective parent of the new school put it: ‘In the UK you’re taught how to pass exams. In Scandinavia you’re taught how to think.’
Me, I went to the LEGO® school of hard blocks.

These minimalist, abstract LEGO® portraits of characters from pop culture show you just how iconic some of these creations are, that they can be so readily identified from such basic shapes. Incredible.
Incredible LEGO® MOC of the Russell T. Davies era TARDIS console from Doctor Who. Be sure to check out some of Mr. Xenomurphy’s other LEGO® MOCs, including this LEGO® vignette featuring Lady Cassandra from the 2005 Doctor Who episode ‘The End of the World’.
As the Ninth Doctor himself might have said, “Give the man a medal”.
Nicely shot LEGO® recreation of certain scenes from the Coen Brothers’ The Big Lebowski by Lennart Bendixen. The moustaches on LEGO® The Jesus’s compadre are a nice touch. (Thanks to Phil Sherry for the link.)
A cool (if slightly over-dramatic) video detailing a reproduction of the Ancient Greek computing device known as the Antikythera Mechanism using plastic gears from a LEGO® Technic set.
Meanwhile, here’s a pink LEGO® house I built for my daughter.
The first and second Matrix films had a handful of great sequences, but how much better would they have been if they’d been filmed in LEGO®vision?
Answer: this much better.
This was the first major LEGO® set I owned. Clearly I will never achieve my dream of being the first author to include it on one of their book covers. Damn you, Jan Kraśko. Damn you to space.
