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.
The Zombie Creation:
This week’s LEGO Zombie creation, “A Terrible Bad Idea” by carlos.sisi, is exactly what the title says, a really bad idea. Well, as long as your goal is to survive the zombie apocalypse, it’s a bad idea. If you want to get torn apart and devoured by a horde of zombies, it’s probably a pretty incredible idea. Two sides to every coin and all that.
So What’s Going On?
We’ve got a badass looking dude with a cool hat and a crossbow. Unfortunately for him, he’s completely surrounded by zombies. Crossbows are great and all, but they aren’t exactly know for quick and easy reloading.
All in all, it’s a pretty normal scene, but what really makes this shine is the lighting. The scene is super dark and moody, which can be tough to pull off with LEGO® (trust me, I’ve done quite a bit of low-light LEGO® scenes).
Let’s Talk About the Zombies
I get the sense that the zombies here are of the slow, shambling variety. I say that because our survivor has allowed himself to get ringed it. I assume fast zombies would pursue him in a more linear fashion. Your mileage my vary, of course.
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.
It has been brought to my attention by Greg that the creator of this MOC is also the writer of The Wanderers, a zombie novel that we reviewed very, very highly. Check it out.
