We’ve spotlighted quite a few examples of what happens when genre fandom and a love of Legos merge. You get things like Inception remade with Legos, the Spaceballs “They’ve gone to plaid!” scene remade with Legos, or a bizarre Lego mash-up of Star Wars and M.C. Escher. But come on, guys, Legos are so last century. Everybody knows that the hip new outlet for people with creativity and a lot of free time is Minecraft!
If you’re not familiar with Minecraft, it’s a sandbox game that basically allows users to build things. Pretty much anything you can imagine, you can build it in Minecraft. It is, as I suggested above, sort of like Legos only with an unlimited number of blocks and nigh infinite space in which to build. Blastr has pored over the realms of Minecraft and posted two dozen or so pretty amazing recreations of SF and fantasy icons such as Minas Tirith from Lord of the Rings and Hogwarts from Harry Potter. You can see the full gallery over there, but we’ve picked out our favorite SF-related recreations and posted them below. I’m particularly fond of the TNG-era Enterprise and the White Star from Babylon 5.
