Some people see something awesome, and then go on to think, “I have to make that.” These people fall into dozens of different subcategories, from crafters to cosplayers and beyond—but my favorite subset of this group is the people who think, “I have to make that entirely out of LEGO.”
Such was the thought process of YouTubesman Nick Brick, whose delightful rhyming name goes perfectly with his preferred hobby. In this instance, he’s recreated the SPNKr rocket launcher as seen in Halo 5. The build includes around 6,000 LEGO pieces, measures 50.5″ long and weighs in at 24lb. From a distance it doesn’t even look like it’s made from tiny plastic bricks.
