Zombie Creation: Zombies on a Train!

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 week’s creation, “Zombie’s on a Train!” by “Spider JL, shows us how great those printed bricks or ones with decals can be when used right. I don’t know about you, but I normally don’t use decals since I don’t like the way they look, and for some reason I can’t get the damn things on straight. But as you can see here they can add a layer of authenticity to a scene which in this case is a train station.

Zombies - wait for it - on a train

Every part of this MOC was considered, and no detail was left behind. Looking in the back we see some of the dumber zombies confused by the glass left behind on the train. The ones who have made it out have found their prey, which were likely some poor saps on their way to some dreary office job. In the middle of the rush you’ll notice a knocked over trashcan which should please our LEGO overlord, Dave.

Aside from the nice tile work on the ground my favorite part of this is the unbalanced fellow to the right that’s falling backwards. Nice touch, Spider JL!

Lastly, not to be missed to the very far right is a custom vending machine that is yet another well thought out detail that adds to the realism of this MOC. And as luck would have it I found instructions on how to make it right here.

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.

  1. I really like this, great sense of panic. Any idea where do these Zombie faces come from?

    • They all look like various custom sets from custom sites. I think most are old Brickarns. This was taken in 2009.

  2. What can I say? I loves me some LEGO garbage cans.

    • you are weird…

      • Hah. It’s a well designed piece, dammit!

      • FYI Yatkuu….you’re on a site that features custom use of toys for a zombie apocalypse obsession. Little things like trashcan enjoyment are to be expected! 😉

  3. This is sooooo cool!! He has a theater under attack on his Flickr account that is awesome too.

    Spider JL, do you make some of minifigs yourself?

  4. Very well detailed. I’m going to have to try assembling the vending machine and comparing it’s build to some I’ve got. see which I like better.

    • Yeah, that think looks nicer than the vending machine I made a while back. Especially in terms of scale.

    • If I can find more directions like that I’d like to do a whole post on custom designs.

  5. Glad everyone likes this!

    Dave called me in a drunken rage and told me “more zombies and less cthulhu next week or I’ll cut your balls off”

    Frankly, I was offended.

    • hahahahahahahaha!

      Mutts, I’m offended for you. lol

  6. Years ago these zombie heads were available as a set. If you do a google search they will come up. I’ve never seen them in person but they look great in the photos and have a nice “classic yellow smiley” quality to them which I dig.

    • Where can I get some? I have barely enough zombies for a zombie thumbnail outbreak and would like to get some of the nice custom ones as shown.

  7. I’ve had it with these Monkey-fighting zombies on this monday-to-friday train!

  8. In Honor of you being the first person I ever met in the brickcomic world Dave, I’m going to name my one and only Lego trashcan after you and find someway to incorporate it into TMAOTTPT It may not be much to some, but to you, I know you’d appreciate that! :3

    • Hah. I’m honored.

  9. this is the part where everyone (alive) says, OH SHIT!
