I spotted this yesterday on Nebs' blog and it made me do a double-take: it's a Lego version of Space Battleship Yamato from Star Blazers.


When I was a kid I never got any of the cool Legos (people kept buying me the ones with ponies or bright pink houses), but I usually craved my brother's pirate Legos more than the space ones. This, however, completely changes my point of view on the matter. I have never so desperately wanted a box of space Legos in my life.

Holy tequito! That looks amazing!

The only things I've ever built out of Legos are buildings and robots... >_>

Legos brings back a lot of fond childhood memories!  The starship looks stunning.

Wow, I wonder how long that took to put together.

Ooooooh, Lego was my life when I was younger. The telltale sound of tiny hands digging through a massive tub of small parts used to resonate throughout my home into the wee hours of the night. I still have a massive collection sealed away in my parent's attic, we made all kinds of things, from cars, to castles. I wish I had pictures of some of my old creations, I was quite gifted in the art of the brick.

I saw this on Brothers Brick last month.  Some good techniques there, but overall it's not that great.  It's not the right shape and a lot of it is wrong. 

Now for an amazingly good LEGO Yamato, check this out: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=58795  The guy building it has since torn it down and is working on a model of the real battleship Yamato: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=114077  Incidentally, the guy was also on an episode of the Japanese game show TV Champion that centered around LEGO builders.
