Out of fairness I really don't feature LEGO Ideas stuff much, if I posted every project that I get sent soon the blog would be nothing but. So this is pretty much totally selfish because I want this set! Time is running short for this fantastic Nautilus from Orion Pax, it needs your support. Let's try and make this thing a reality.
The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen, for as much promise it seemed to have, was an epic disappointment. I had a tangential connection with it, helping solve some of the compositing challenges, and I had high hopes for it. But alas, I was let down. But there are a few shining gems in there, and one of them is this, Nemo's car, the Nautilus. The version by Mad physicist is as jaw dropping as the real one. Just look at that lovely detailing on the front, scrumptious.
I'm as big a Disney nerd as I am a LEGO nerd, and I've always liked the aesthetics and design of Nemo's submarine from 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. This was steampunk before anyone knew what steampunk was. Orion Pax does this classic justice with an jaw-dropping build, friggin' awesome. Check out his website for more pictures.
