As both of you who regularly follow this space will know, DDOGamer like to occasionally wander the World Wide Web and feature areas of interest. Maybe you recall the D&D name generator? Or the fastest fictional space ship? Perhaps the D&D-scented perfumes?

Today’s web find is the Legoizer. You upload any picture, and the site transforms the picture into a Lego mural, complete with a Lego shopping list and row-by-row instructions.

For instance, this:

ddo

The DDO Logo as a lego mural would be 5’3″ wide and 2’0″ tall.

Let’s do another!

 

lego tenathear

Tenathear the Blue Dragon as a lego mural would be 5’3″ wide and 2’8″ tall, and require 4677 Legos in 71 different combinations of size and color. Oddly, he is not very blue.

The site includes row-by-row instructions, but I can’t find a way to print or save them. Which is a bit of a drawback, it would take days to create one of these things, and the instructions would go away any time your PC powered off, or even if someone just forgot and browsed somewhere else. Another drawback, you don’t get Tenathear in 3-D. Just a flat mural, a picture of the beast rather than an actual representation.

Nonetheless, Tenathear! In Lego! Which is awesome.

But now let’s try a photo that is truly worthwhile of the Lego-ization treatment:

 

behold legos

Now that is what I am talking about! This mural would be 3’11” wide and 4’11” tall (conveniently sized for wall hanging!) and require this list of Lego:

I think that list may be a couple thousand dollars worth of Lego – the stuff is expensive! And only to create something so poorly defined that I can barely recognize it, yet so randomly colored that it would clash with any decor, anywhere.

Still. Lego Geoff and the Beholder.

A man’s gotta have dreams!

  1. I can just picture you sitting at the table putting the legos together while your Gamer Girl and I mocked you in chat. Then Linus and Lucy would knock over your half completed project while we got you to the keyboard…..

What do you think?
