Zombie Creation: Experiment Gone Wrong

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, “Experiment Gone Wrong” by CD Stone (here’s another link with more photos), features one of my favorite tropes in the genre: mad/evil scientists experimenting on zombies, with the predictable result of the zombie escaping its bonds and running loose.

This is how the LEGO Zombie outbreak begins... with science

So What’s Going On?

Well, like I said, this creation features out-of-control science at it’s best: a zombie breaking loose from it’s bonds in some sort of dark, spooky laboratory. That’s how the outbreak starts.

Um... send help.

And of course some poor schmuck – a researcher looking for a cure to the accidental zombification – is caught in the middle of it all.

Let’s Talk About the Zombies

The zombie here is a somewhat tragic figure. The victim of experimentation gone awry, this zombie is chained to a table in a gloomy looking research facility. One imagines all manner of obscene and painful tests the zombie had to endure. Luckily for it, zombies are dead and don’t feel pain (although research is still out on whether they can get embarrassed).

When it breaks free of the chains holding it in place, it’s almost a victory. At least until you realize that this poor fellow is going to be the vector for a global outbreak. That’s kind of a bummer.

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. Nice.

  2. Very good « action snapshot ». I like how the scientist is holding the radio, desperately trying to call for help. The vignette is cleverly built too, with the partial walls and the nice finishing touches.
    There is just 1 thing that bothers me a little and it’s the wall texture on the zombie side.. it does not really feel like a containment cell or a lab; but I’m being picky!

    • I kind of liked the wall texture. To me, it looks like the project is sort of underfunded, so they’re setup in substandard facilities.

        I was thinking the same. makes for a cool story.

  3. Wow. Thanks Dave! This MOC was actually for a contest (which I had very little time to build for). So this would explain why I wasn’t able to do a very…correct build. Not a very new story either but I had to come up with something fast :s. I’ve been itching to do another zombie related creation lately but most of my pieces are being used for a convention at the moment. More zombies to come after May!!!

    • It’s a solid build. Unfortunately the larger images on MOCPages weren’t working for me, so I wasn’t able to add them here. Nicely done, sir!

    • I have had requests to take part in a MOCathalon before but I never tried it… just afraid I could not keep up and building stuff on the clock is not really my thing.
      How did it go for you? Had you done it before?

      • I was a newb to the MOCAthalon this year. I, personally, did not enjoy it that much. Six or more (hopefully) decent entries in one month is a little to much for me. I only got three entries in :s Bah. I’ll just admit it. Not a team player…

  4. Yess… Yes bite the scientist.. Yest.. Nom on his flesh until he joins the undead..
    -Plot, plot, sinister, evil-

    • Lawl. Yummy mad scientist flesh!

    • hahahahahahahahaha

  5. I seriously love the patterns on the floor on both sides of the glass. Nice detail there.

    Also, as a person who wears glasses, minifigs with glasses always make me smile.
