Legos are fascinating because the tiny pieces of plastic give the builder the power to build anything he or she desires. The only skill required is your imagination and a bit of patience.
Some of the best Lego creations can be the ones inspired from the film industry. Lego builder Jason Corlett did just that. He used his talent of Lego building to create Cherno Alpha from Pacific Rim, the hulking Russian Jaeger.
He nailed the details perfectly, starting with the giant robotic arms and the iconic cylindrical shaped helmet. The infamous red light in the middle of the chest is the landmark for recognizing Cherno Alpha, and Corlett made sure to include it hidden behind a protective cover. Corlett even placed the Jaeger next to a mini-fig to compare just how tall it stands, and it’s a giant clocking in at 2′ 11″ tall.
One must truly appreciate the time and effort (70 hours and ~5000 Legos) it took to create this toy sculpture, so head on down below to check out some images of the super awesome Lego Cherno Alpha. Be sure to head on over to Corlett’s Flickr page to check out more images.
