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 creation, “Undead Forestment” by Tazmaniac onn Eurobrick, is another cool historical build, then time set in LEGO®’s own universe, but with an undead twist.
The build itself is really nice, and comprised of a couple different, distinct areas. There’s a medieval city, the wall/castle outside, and the wilderness beyond that. Each is very well built and just packed with details (I just love how the castle is built into a natural stone formation). Make sure you click through to check it all out.
So What’s Going On?
I’ll let the creator of this awesome build sum things up: “A long time has past since the forest-men roamed the wood lands, taking from the rich and giving to the poor. In this time the royal knights have become fat and lazy, and some what comfortable in their superiority… but the forest-men are back from the dead and this time it’s all about brains…”
So there you have it. The forestmen are coming back from the grave, and they’re here to feast on the living.
Let’s Talk About the Zombies
The zombies here aren’t your typical dumb shamblers. They carry and use weapons and appear to have a pretty specific target in mind.
Growing up, Castle was my absolute favorite theme. Seeing some of these older figures again, but zombified, really warms my heart – in an admittedly weird way. This creation is dark, but it’s also strangely whimsical.
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.
