The Last of Us has been out since June of 2013 and it was such a prolific and intense game that almost four years later we are still talking about it. Before the PS4 release of the same game, used copies were still being sold for nearly as much as they were new. For a PS3 game, these graphics were as close to lifelike as I’ve ever seen. Updating it for the PS4 just made that even more realistic.
So what is the hubbub about now? It seems one man’s love for LEGOs and The Last of Us has combined to make one very detailed lovechild. According to brothers-brick.com, Tim Schwalfenberg used an estimated 20,000 bricks to make the diorama of a complete city block. Some bricks he 3D printed on his own to fit his needs.
With stunning realism both inside of the LEGO buildings and outside on the cordycep infected streets, it gives new life to those little bricks that are like landmines in your kids’ rooms.
It took him 100 hours to complete the entire scene. Looking through the pictures, you can see that even in this small The Last of Us LEGO scene, nature is taking back this city block, furniture is knocked over and scattered, curtains torn and tattered and the streets broken.
Best of all, if you look very closely in the panoramic image, there are tiny Joel and Ellie figures walking through the dystopian city.
The whole diorama is 39.37in x 23.62in (100cm X 60cm). You can see more of his LEGO creations on his website.
