LEGO Johnny Five is robotic perfection

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?
