Brick Pic of the Day: 23 July 16

Who could ever forget the iconic movie poster for Independence Day 1996? Here it has been recreated not only in LEGO, but at micro-scale and so perfectly executed as well. I’m a huge fan of micro-scale models in general and love to study the techniques used to create the illusion of more detail. This one here is absolutely fantastic. I like how the lightsaber bar has cunningly been used both as the beam destroying the White House, but functioning as support for the UFO.

Hello, I'm Séb, your friendly neighbourhood AFOL. As a child, Lego was always my favourite toy and now as an adult it appears nothing has changed. I emerged from my dark ages in 2011 after rediscovering my old sets in my parents' attic and haven't looked back since. I'm a big fan of the licensed themes particularly DC/Marvel Superheroes & Lord Of The Rings, though Creator Expert provides the more challenging & technical build I'm rather fond of.
