Using LEGOs and a camera, a Minecraft fan creates a stop-motion chase between a zombie and a character that ends Looney Tunes style.
Due to its huge success, over time Minecraft has made all kinds of merchandise; from mobs to characters to locations, the game has seen a ton of merch lines in its likeness. Minecraft T-shirts can be found in many chain stores, as well as toys and other products.
Perhaps one of the most notable of these deals is with the LEGO company; For those who don’t know, LEGOs are toys, usually in block form, that stick together so that users can create structures or other creations. Over time, however, LEGO has expanded into other areas such as Minecraftmerchandise; for example, the most recent case would be the hilarious one LEGO Star Wars: Skywalker Sagathe latest in a series of LEGO video games.
Since both LEGO and Minecraft were block-based creative outlets, it was a natural combination when the two decided to create LEGO sets together. Players also agreed with the partnership, including a player who had a Minecraft mod that swaps mobs with LEGOs. Other players have called on LEGO to create their own game to compete Minecraft in terms of popularity, but with the deal out there, the chances of this happening are pretty unlikely. Recently another Minecraft fan used a LEGO Minecraft set and their camera to create an incredible animation.
Reddit user EdgarDruin decided to combine their creativity with their camera skills to design a stop motion animation creation. The end result was a zombie chasing a character across moving terrain until the player directs the zombie to a red “X” on the ground. The player then turns to watch his master plan as it unfolds; the zombie looks up just in time to see an anvil crash into his head. Both the title and the anvil also seem to refer to one of the Looney Tunesbest cartoons: The Road Runner Show†
Reddit users were blown away by the quality of the animation and EdgarDruin’s creativity. One user commented that it was an incredible stop motion video and they especially liked that it was a looped animation. Another user commented that the animation references another show through the character being performed, noting that they have the “Naruto run.” Yet another user said the stop motion was so good they wanted to buy the LEGO set.
Now that users love stop-motion, maybe Mojang should partner with EdgarDruin for ads in the future; maybe they can even see the return of a… LEGO Harry Potter series. Until then, fans will have to wait for EdgarDruin’s next masterpiece.
Minecraft is now available on mobile, PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
