Futurama‘s New New York is constructed of Lego bricks in this
detailed diorama.

We’ve seen some impressive Lego creations (sniper
rifles
, printers,
full-size
houses
…), and Matt De Lanoy’s Futurama diorama is a worthy
addition.

For starters, it’s huge. It measures roughly 5 feet by 7 feet, and it’s been
in construction for about two years. Almost every part of the city is
represented, including Planet Express, its ship, the Robot Arms Apartments where
Bender and Fry live, Momcorp HQ, the Head museum, Elzar’s fine cuisine, Applied
Cryogenics, the sewers where the mutants live, the Madison Cube Garden (which
lights up at night!) and more.

The attention to detail is incredible, too. The individual characters in the
series are all placed within the diorama and have custom
decals
applied to them, with some featuring special modeling work. Oddly,
there are a few Star Wars characters dotted around too, but I’ll let
that slide.

If you want to see things in more detail, there’s a huge range of pictures to
look at over at De Lanoy’s photostream
on Flickr
, where he goes by the name Pepa Quin. My favorite is the one of Smitty
and URL
, the police officers from the New New York
Police Department
. How about you?
