Zombie Creation: Walking Dead LEGO®

There’s a lot of zombie stuff out there, and most of it is crap. People like to jump on bandwagons and produce quick tie-ins rather than investing love and effort into their creations. Luckily for you, I’m here to help separate the wheat from the chaff. Check back every Friday, when I’m going to share the coolest zombie-related creation I can find out there on the web.

This week’s example, “Walking Dead LEGO®” by familiar face Retrogarde, proves that you don’t need a couple hundred thousand bricks to make a pretty damn compelling zombie MOC (that may or may not be a hint).

This reminds me of a comic and TV show, but I can't put my finger on which one

And here it is again in black and white because I think that’s fun.

Black and white is fun

Retrogrades awesome creation utilizes a number of simple techniques to tell a really great story. In fact, you can get a lot out of this even if you’ve never heard of The Walking Dead in its various iterations. If I had to pick a favorite, I’d probably go with the slivers of broken glass hanging in the remains of the window casement, but the bullet holes and quick wood/metal grating barrier are also tops.

Also of note: a prop from another fantastic zombie comic with which I think you’re all familiar.

Have you seen a great zombie-related creation out on the web? Are you working on the next great zombie MOC as we speak? Well you had better let us know right away, otherwise we’ll never be able to include it here.

Niiice… I guess this was inspired by the cover of the first issue?

oh and yeah… “proves that you don’t need a couple hundred thousand bricks to make a pretty damn compelling zombie MOC (that may or may not be a hint).”

Haha, I didn’t see that you featured this! Ever since featured MOCs got moved back to Thursdays, I haven’t paid them as much attention…

Anyway, this certainly is an awesome MOC! It makes for a fantastic display for a single custom minifig.

Retrogarde said in an earlier picture with the same background (but not the newspaper) that it was basically just an excuse to try out the broken glass effect I used in my entry to the BotD MOC Building Freeform Challenge. So I’d like to say that I “pioneered” the technique! 😉
