Well Princess Pupule asked what I build with LEGO after a few Zombies and a serious question like that deserves a serious answer.

Kon-Briki is fueled by Mai Tais primarily, when the Zombie comes into the equation I end up with something like this instead:

You totally blew the Barbie lego couch I made when I was 9 out of the water! Damn you! Now I have the urge to hit a toy store and buy some Lego's.

Hey, a Lego Mai Tai! How do I make a Lego pineapple spear? Lego Mint!

Off to the lab.....

Glad you like it.

It took a bit of planning but the bit that shows the true origin of the moai was entirely fueled by Zombies.

(KukiAme, this is the one shot project I was talking about by the way.)

Well, I cannot claim to be the first, there are six foot tall LEGO moai at one of the Legoland amusement parks.

Hard to work at that scale when you don't have direct access to the factory loading dock 8)

And here I thought that you were building all those Lego setups yourself, Rev. After watching your videos, I see now that you have small Lego alien ghost-builders. Clever.

I got challenged recently to build in Lego the Restaurant from the TV Show Bob's Burgers. I ended up in the deepest parts of teh interweb looking for source materials, I tweeted with one the writers, I tried to hook up with the animation company, I watched countless episodes to try to get decent source images to work from. I even downloaded a cut-out-and-paste Burger Van to build from. I went overboard and ended up creating all three buildings complete with graphics.
