Strap in for a fan-made LEGO version of the Top Gun: Maverick trailer, where everything, and we mean everything is brick-built.
We all know by now that LEGO fans are most definitely creative and dedicated, with many spending hours on faithful recreations of popular trailers. Some have even gone on to work on official LEGO projects, such as NINJAGO: Reimagined.
Someone has now taken the time to remake the first Top Gun: Maverick trailer, entirely in LEGO bricks. Onbeatman is a LEGO brickfilm animator and released the project last night. The recreation is based on the first official trailer for the upcoming movie.
Perhaps the most astonishing element of the video is that everything is brick-built, and uses stop-motion with added lighting effects. Minifigures are used to represent the characters of the movie, including Pete Mitchell in his iconic Maverick flight helmet.
The trailer was made over five months and features 3,240 frames, and Onbeatman enlisted the help of other builders and animators in completing the project. As a result, this collaborative effort is an almost perfect remake of the original trailer which has now gone on to earn 16 million views. Perhaps the LEGO version can do the same.
