I’ve had this idea for a while and finally decided to start working on it. I was super annoyed at how there was no consistency of design among the Disney dvd covers, (different case heights and widths, nothing lines up, etc) so I decided to make my own.
The basic idea is to feature either concept art or an animation drawing on the front with the title, and then subtle flourishes of design on the back related to the film. I also put the original year of release on the spine because, dammit, that’s the way it should be.
I hope to do all 53 eventually, but for now I just started with a handful. I think it will look pretty nice when its done.
The last picture is my Lion King design which I haven’t printed out yet. (I need a smaller case first.)
Me & Matt Chapman goofing around between takes for the credits tag in Sock Opera. For those of you that don’t know, Matt Chapman writes on Gravity Falls (Co-wrote “Into The Bunker” with me) and also makes a hell of a good McGucket puppeteer. (Oh, and he’s also Strong Bad, incidentally)

Well, this is it people. My own personal greatest photo set.
Swedish Lego Users Group Swebrick just held their annual “AFOL vs AFOL” building contest. AFOL stands for “Adult Fan of LEGO” and this year’s building theme was “Any scene from an ’80s movie or TV show featuring a vehicle.” Builder Etzel87 won first place with this awesome recreation of the unforgettable scene in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off when Cameron vents his long pent-up anger at his dad by kicking his father’s precious Ferrari until it ultimately pops off its jack and crashes through the window of his (now famous) house.
We love the expressions on the minifigs’ faces as they helplessly watch the car plunge toward its doom as well as the use of flat, clear 1x1 pieces for flying shards of glass.
