Living in the post apocalypse can be surprisingly comfortable. This reclaimed gas station is home to a small group of survivors who are just making day-to-day. This Lego creation called “Gas Station” has been built by hellboy.lego. Built as an entry into the Vignweek 2020 challenge. This post apocalyptic Gas Station features a small rural style station that has been turned into an outpost/watchtower. It welcomes nobody, with its multitude of Never Stop signs (from the Lego Move 2 sets) mixed in with a bunch of Nuclear Fallout signs. Everything here is Lego, no custom pieces. The soda vending machine, the old classic car, and the EAT sign are all great details that bring a lot of personality to the build. There is even a cute rubber ducky hiding out! Did the survivors get the RV and car up on the roof, or did the nuclear explosion?
Mad Max: Fury Road had a lot of iconic scenes and characters, but the most memorable is the Doof Wagon. A massive truck completely covered in speakers and sub-woofers. A crew of drummers in the back keep the beat going but the star of the show is the Doof Warrior, also known as Coma. A bungie-jumping flaming guitar player leading the armada in battle. This Lego Doof Wagon is the work of tfcrafter1. They used a bunch of Lego 1×1 rounds and 2×2 dishes to create the wall of sound. One of the best details is the bungie cord system, built here with that weird Lego rope with Minifigure grips. The whole truck has been recreated, and even includes a whole set of drummers in the back. As for Coma, the Lego Minifigure skeleton head is a perfect match to the character from the film.
Welcome to Reno, the biggest little city in the world. In the post apocalypse a pair of survivors have found refuge in Nevada. Their current shelter is a ruined airplane that they found in the high desert. This Lego vignette is called “The Gate Of Nevada: 2075” and is created by Mr.MOCsProductions. Built as an entry into the Vignweek 2020 challenge. The specifice theme for this entry is: post apocalyptic. The crashed biplane is a great build. It is emerging from the sandy soil. The plane has a lot of detail especially in the wings. The support structure is a complicated system of bars and clips; the end result looks great. There are also a few rubber bands being used to look like some minor repairs have been done. The two Minifigures look appropriatly end-of-the-worldish. They both come equipped with custom guns. The flags hanging from the telephone pole look great, which is helped by a few custom printed flags. The biggest feature of the vignette is the Reno sign. It has an appropriatly retro look to it, created by using some of the new Lego Dots bricks. Hopefully the nuclear fallout has passed, otherwise the future is going to get a lot harder for these two.
You can build anything out of Lego. Even huge dioramas based on zombie/apocalypse video games. Such as this MOC which is based on the The Last of Us. The game is easily one of the best of the last decade, and a sequel has recently been announced. The ruined buildings have been detailed down to the smallest piece. The whole creation is 3 1/2 feet wide, and 2 feet deep. It uses thousands and thousand of bricks. Interestingly enough, it sounds like one of the buildings here is made up of custom 3D printed bricks. Can you guess which one?
The buildings contain some incredible work creating the rundown walls of the buildings. A few of the techniques used can be seen over here. The Lego buildings even have plants and vines growing out of them. The whole overgrown feeling captures the game exactly. You can find some other details too: a ruined bus, a military vehicle, and even Minifigures of Ellie and Joel.
An interesting detail are the broken windows. Each building has a different way of creating these. There are stacked 1×2 clear bricks, overlapping multiple small Lego windows, unevenly stacked windows, and a combination of the other three.
The Last Of Us Lego Interiors.
“It was a challenge to create rundown interiors where furniture and other fixtures were still identifiable, but I think they turned out well.” — Tim Schwalfenberg
Each building contains fully customized and detailed interiors. Each floor is different which means there are a lot of hidden features in these buildings. A few of the scenes created contain ruined toilets, rundown kitchens, pillaged stores, and broken bars.
The only thing missing is a pack of Clickers, crazy Militias, or some Fireflies.
