Lego is frequently sold as a toy that can be anything you want it to be. That was taken literally just recently, resulting in this recreation of the Top Gun Maverick trailer, made entirely with Lego. More or less.
Made by a Top Gun
There are a couple of versions of the Lego trailer — the original you’ll find below, while above is a side-by-side look at the real deal versus the painstakingly made clone. The creation of one Gus Danko, known on YouTube as Onbeatman, this frame-by-frame reproduction was created “…using only a canon t6i, 2017 iMac, and 2011 MacBook Pro.”
And, apparently, done for the hell of it. This is a fantastic amount of attention to detail to be “…created 100% independently out of my love for Top Gun, cinema, and LEGO”, as Danko explains. But you’d already know that, having been entirely blown away when you’d clicked ‘play’ on the video above. The fact that you’re still reading this proves that you haven’t done so yet. What are you thinking?
There’s only one thing that might be cooler than seeing this trailer, and that’s seeing how it was made. There’s a short documentary showing how the upcoming Top Gun sequel was turned into something Lego Batman might approve of due soon. We’ll be keeping an eye out for that one.
