Grim Fandango Lego?

While wandering on Youtube, I saw Monkey Island movie made by Lego. And I think, this stuff is great, so why can't we use Lego to recreate a Grim Fandango movie? I am pretty good at Lego, but I've never tried to make a stop-motion film before. I hope someone could make Grim Fandango by Lego, then it was very cool. I think it's not really hard....

Any idea?

What do you mean? Nobody did a Grim Fandango Lego, but many people did a Monkey Island Lego theme movie. So I ask everyone to make a Grim Fandango movie... sounds pretty cool, right? I think it's not too hard to do it, but, the only thing is, we have to make a Manny's skull by drawing on a blank white head... maybe?

I watched it... In my opinion, this is pretty sucks. I don't feel the theme of Monkey Island, somehow.

oh well it doesnt look that bad. A movie in this style would be nice, but its alot of work too.
I would rather like to have have a funny flash movie like this ( maybe very old and already known! )

You can just paint over regular lego figures. The problem is you would have to be a very experienced painter to do that. Anyway GF lego would be pretty cool to see

that's a good idea but what about Manny's head? adding extra brick on the head will look similar but sloppy... any ideas? Any volunteers on getting involved?

put some paper tape round the middle? I bet there's a long white cylinder some where in the lego collection.

Something which I think would be very impressive would be if someone could recreate some of the scenes/architecture from Grim Fandango. It could be done relatively easy with one of those computer programs for designing lego models (can't remember what they're called...) but would take a lot of patience.

It's a good thing that I've came back for a long time missing, and this topic is still working on. Heh, I suddenly remembered about "Grim Fandango Lego" idea while thinking of buying LEGO Indiana Jones , and then I decided to go back to this forum to check out if there's anything new. Woah, this topic was on the top.

Deja Vu?

OK back to topic:

To tell the truth, I've been playing LEGO for almost 15 years (since I was 2). If only I have enough amount of Lego in my hand, I could remake scenes from Grim Fandango. IMHO, I don't thing that's too hard.

Maybe I'll mess with MLCad... in a distance future . Student's life is quite busy you know. And moreover, building a LEGO building is taking pretty long time, not even mention that building it on MLCad is even longer (and eyes-hurting too)



Just made it for one month ago.

any way you can make Manny look less evil? And didn't Manny have stuff on his tables? I know the one on the left had plenty decks of cards on it.
