A Lego Experiment

While watching a certain 1980s film with friends a few weeks ago, I noticed how colour coded the characters were. Rather than emulate them with Lego minifigures as I usually would, I wanted to distill them into something much simpler and the LEGO Imagine ads from 2012 came to mind. Using this simple 2×2 stud style, I’ve attempted to recreate the five lead characters in Lego bricks. I’ve added descriptions of the characters from the film as I wasn’t confident people would ‘get it’ otherwise, which is possibly a sign this experiment hasn’t fully succeeded or that the film isn’t as iconic as I thought.

If you get it, I hope it raises a smile, if you don’t, no worries.
