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 Thursday, when I’m going to share the coolest zombie-related creation I can find out there on the web.
This weeks creation is called “The Call of Cthulhu” by ((Primus)). What in the world does this have to do with Zombies you might say? Well, indirectly, almost everything. Created by H.P Lovecraft, Cthulhu is the most prominent monsters in the Cthulhu Mythos which is an open ended fictional world that is open to every writer to explore and write in. From legends like Stephen King to rising stars like Rod Redux, H.P Lovecraft was a heavy influence on all of them and most horror might not exist today were it not for Lovecraft.
While this particular scene does not appear in any specif story of Lovecraft’s, you easily get the idea that Cthulhu is a creature hell bent on destruction for a grand apocalypse. If you look close enough you’ll realize this is an underwater scene that and you might even spot a couple stingray’s swimming by.
Outstanding mixture of traditional LEGO® and the much maligned (to the LEGO® purists) Bionacle pieces. The scale is flat out impressive and I am loving how how Cthulhu was squeezed into a futuristic set of body armor.
There is no detail left unconsidered and he even used clear pieces to represent floating in water. The dark LEGO® fits the mood of Cthulhu himself highlighted by the neon green eyes.
Again, yeah this isn’t about zombies but its an important part of horror history that captured the imagination of many writers whose work we enjoy today.
Have you seen a great zombie 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.
