Lego is the defining toy of a number of generations, offering almost unlimited creativity in how it can be used. We’ve seen a complex computer case built entirely from the popular construction toy, but now Youtuber “ZaziNombies” has created a replica of one of the most well-known guns in all of video gaming history, Doom’s BFG 9000.
ZaziNombies has an entire YouTube channel dedicated to his Lego creations, which often focus on a great number of weapons from a huge number of popular franchises. Some of the Lego replicas already under his belt include the nuke-launching Fat Man from Fallout 3, Frostmourne of Warcraft fame and a large number of the guns seen in the Call of Duty series. All of these pale in comparison to the Lego BFG, which is the largest and heaviest gun he has ever built and is an amazingly complex build. The finished model is made from around 5000 individual lego bricks, including a number of translucent and light bricks and weighs in at 20 pounds. The real version may weigh a lot more (if it existed), but that is certainly a lot of weight for a Lego model.
Considering the lack of reference material for the iconic weapon, the level of detail that has gone into the model is incredible and includes a number of smart construction techniques in order to bring the whole thing together. For a full rundown of the model, check out the video below and get a glimpse into how the BFG may look in reality.
