The LEGO Architecture Skylines series has been very popular, with a number of excellent and iconic skylines available to choose from, including Paris, San Francisco, Shanghai, New York City, and Las Vegas still available. Sydney and London have gone out of stock, but I’m sure if you look hard enough, you can find one!
But what about those other iconic skylines? The ones that aren’t real, but so many of us have grown up with, and would know like the back of our hands if we happened to miraculously get there? The ones from movies and books?
Well, MOMAtteo79 on Flickr has spent a lot of time creating some of them, and they look stunning. Microscale isn’t easy, but this is done with style, and there’s plenty of recognisable landmarks.
Hogwarts Castle, Diagon Alley, the Hogwarts Express, so much awesome here!
I love the boulder and idol from Raiders of the Lost Ark, the minecart from Temple of Doom, and the dogfight (and zeppelin) from Last Crusade. This one is excellent.
Lord of the Rings
There’s so much to like about this one, but Hobbiton and Minas Tirith in particular are awesome. Hobbiton looks so cute!
I had to include this one. The White family home, complete with the pizza on the roof is hilarious, and the lab is perfect!
Back to the Future
BTTF is easily my favourite one though – the use of trans red elements in various places is spot on. This one is brilliant.
Which one is your favourite?
