Movies in LEGO – Tyler Recreates Brick-Built, Life-Sized Versions of the Spider-Drone and Baby Groot!

LEGO has been faithfully recreating some of the most memorable scenes in the movies as long as I can remember, and now that LEGO’s partnership with Disney is on full swing, especially with the advent of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), we can certainly expect more awesome sets to be released later on, even until 2020.

Suffice it to say, it is not only LEGO that is excited about these sets, but also dedicated fans who wish to see some of their most memorable movie scenes conveyed in LEGO form. Tyler is no stranger in this genre, and we’re undoubtedly impressed by his level of creativity and imagination. If you’re not familiar with his work yet, just click on any of the links below and see how he recreated some of the best scenes memorable characters, and iconic objects from our most-loved films, even upcoming ones.

This time around, Tyler becomes more inventive by adding additional life-sized MOCs into his roster of creations, specifically by giving life to one of Marvel galaxy’s cutest Guardians, none other than Baby Groot. Take a look at this video.

Tyler never missed out on the details: from Baby Groot’s Ravager garb to the excellent articulation in virtually all of Baby Groot’s joints for a more dynamic posing. Its scale and size is well-balanced and is evenly proportioned which gives this LEGO Baby Groot MOC a very lifelike feel. The best part of it is that Tyler was able to capture Baby Groot’s temperament with his clever use of LEGO pieces. The mouth and eyebrows can all be adjusted to convey either an angry look, or emphatic understanding.

Admittedly, this is one of Tyler’s best work yet and will probably sit on his shelf or desk for a very long time.

Finally, his latest movie-inspired creation is a shout out to one of the coolest upgrades to our webcrawler’s costume. Based on MCU’s Spider-Man Homecoming film slated to hit theaters on July 7, the Spider-Drone (as Tyler opted to call it), is the built-in device that pops out from the emblem of Spidey’s costume, which is by the way, crafted by Tony Stark himself. It didn’t get that much of a screen time in the official trailers, but seeing it in action will surely be one of the coolest part of the film. Here’s Tyler with his brick-built, life-sized version of the Spider-Drone.

Similar to Baby Groot, the Spider-Drone features a lot of articulation using several ball joints and hinges located in its thorax. Tyler adds a propeller underneath its lower extremities to give the Spider-Drone its flight capabilities as seen in the trailer. That part of the abdomen, which connects to the thorax, is likewise articulated to give the Spider-Drone a lifelike feel and pose. It’s kind of a cool to have it standing around with its abdomen slightly raised – it can easily be looked upon as a real spider if viewed from a distance.
