Netflix has built itself quite a library of original shows. Now The ToyZone has found a playful way to honor those hit series. The site created a collection of custom LEGO sets that capture famous moments from eight popular Netflix shows. The collection includes plastic brick tableaus of some of our favorites, like The Witcher, Cobra Kai, and The Queen’s Gambit.
The ToyZone has made some of our favorite custom pop culture tributes. And the site’s latest endeavor is just as good. The ToyZone turned memorable Netflix scenes into LEGO pieces. Doing so wasn’t a matter of simply using a big bucket of plastic pieces, though. The team used computer software to get everything just right. The site explained what that entailed:
First, we re-created the chosen scenes using Studio 2.0 software, which includes a complete library of LEGO bricks and effects. Next, we debugged the designs in specialized 3D software and added details, including objects missing from Studio 2.0. With the models correctly shaped and in place, we used vector design software to add texture to the all-important costumes.
The resulting 3D designs then meant they “could position the virtual camera to match the depth, angle, and even camera lens to those chosen by the shows’ cinematographers.” After exporting the photos they touched them up to get the filters, image temperature, contrast, and clarity of each just right.
That’s why these all have an appropriate cinematic feel to them.
The end results speak for themselves. As the ToyZone also accurately captured scenes from Tiger King, The Crown, Russian Doll, Bridgerton, and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
You can see how each LEGO tableau overlays with the real scene at the project’s official webpage. The ToyZone also included a full breakdown of each set—including how many types of unique pieces, the total number of bricks, and what they cost to acquire—if you want to make your own version.
Some rely on rare LEGO bricks though, so making your own version won’t be easy or cheap.
What is easy is rewatching our favorite Netflix shows. That doesn’t require us to build anything except a good array of snacks.
