This is awesome: Lego DOOM set a dream come true

As I child, I liked two things: DOOM and Lego. I’m guessing that Lego-brick artist Iain Heath (or Ochre Jelly) loved these two past-times as well, as he created this incredible DOOM-Lego diorama, showing at the October BrickCon in Seattle and then later (March 2015) at ComicCon. But we can preview it right now on YouTube.

According to Neatorama, Heath’s custom Lego DOOM setup took over 3 months to build, contains over 15 000 bricks, and is 1.8 x 0.9-meters. The full diorama has four scenes from DOOM, all instantly recognisable for most PC gamers. There’s hundreds of more images on Heath’s Flickr, and it shows in detail the incredible level of effort Heath sunk into his DOOM memorial.
