The only thing more impressive than this Johnny Five from Short Circuit built entirely out of LEGO bricks? The amount of flawless detail crammed into a LEGO build this small.
Every single detail of Johnny Five is absolutely perfect. There’s his three-pronged hands, his face with the eyebrows and huge eyes, the tiny little radio dish on top of his head, his hydraulics, the red toolbox he added in Short Circuit 2 (yes, I watched those movies way too many times when I was young), and treads that actually work. And did I mention that the red toolbox actually opens and has tiny tools inside?
It’s so good, it makes me wish LEGO would market and sell it so I could get the instructions on how to build it for myself. (‘Cause I could never figure out how to do something this perfectly-proportioned on my own.)
LEGO Johnny Five’s builder, Brickshelf user rack911, has a major spot for robots. In addition to J5, he’s also constructed remarkably realistic replicas of Gundam’s iconic RX-78-2, WALL-E, and more. We’re looking at serious talent here. Could “rack911” be the next Nathan Sawaya or Sean Kenney?
