Sacrilege – what happens when LEGO burns?

by admin on August 30, 2012

in LEGO Modification

Okay, let’s make it clear before I get stoned, or before someone get’s a heart-attack; no real LEGO bricks have been harmed in this experiment! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Passionate fans of the LEGO brick often refer to other brick-brands as “clones”, deserved to be wiped off the face of the earth. When picking up a LEGO lot from a garage-sale or eBay,ย LEGO fansย carefully go though the stack and pick out any “clones” that could desecrate their LEGO collection. These poor clone-bricks often end up in the trash-bin, or sometimes get donated to charity. But… how about giving them what they really deserve for their miserable existence… ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

Although LEGO fans do talk about how clone-brands should be burned at the stake, nobody I know has actually done it literally… except forย Seanย & Steph Mayo (yes, the builders of the sweet LEGO Fairy Forest I featured a few days ago), who were up to the brave and honorable task. ๐Ÿ™„

Sean & Stephย builtย the lovely scene, pictured above, from LEGO clone-bricksย (mainly from Megabloks), then lit it up! Watch the video below to see what happens! WARNING! Not for the faint of heart! โ—

Andย below is the final result of LEGO clones charred to the bone. In my opinion the diorama is quite beautiful and artistic, even in its death – or perhaps more that it was in life. The waterfall section has a mystical beauty, and did you notice the lone survivor Megabloks figureย at the tower? Maybe clones are not that bad after all… ๐Ÿ˜

What do you think? Is burning LEGO sacrilege? How about burning LEGO clones? What was your reaction to the video and the experiment? And what do you think of the final result? Share your thoughts and comments below! Oh, and please don’t try this at home!ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Why spend all that money for those clones, all the time to make the scene, and all the preparation to burn it…and then NOT USE A TRIPOD when shooting the video?!!?

Otherwise, pretty cool stuff ๐Ÿ™‚

Good question. But turned out a prety boring video. though the result picture was cool. ๐Ÿ˜€

P.S.
Maybe it was boring cuase I watched it w/out sound? ๐Ÿ˜†

Reply

admin August 30, 2012 at 5:09 PM

Kai, you MUST have the sound on! It is a Hans Zimmer score, giving the video a really dramatic effect. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Kai ZX August 30, 2012 at 8:09 PM

Yes later I watched it with sound on. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It turned out better that way.

Good point! We want to see the burning it all of its intricate details! ๐Ÿ˜›

If you’re going to do something that destroys the blocks use a clone. The aftermath looks pretty neat. I’d like to see close ups.
That burning plastic would have smelled awful.

admin August 30, 2012 at 5:07 PM

Maxx, I really like the after-effect too. In fact when I first saw the picture I thought it was a diorama made for die-cast figures. ๐Ÿ™„

gid617 August 30, 2012 at 11:46 AM

I don’t consider burning LEGO sacrilige (just insanity ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). But yeah, clone brands deserve it! ๐Ÿ˜€

Seems very dangerous the way they lit it with a fireball that basically exploded. And I’m sure the fumes were VERY toxic.

But very interesting experiment! I love the way the burned out castle looks. Very sad and lonely.

LEGO SHOULD NEVER BE BURNED BUT MEGA BLOCKS SHOULD NOT BE BURNED MEGA BLOCKS SHOULD BE EXPLODED ON AN DESSERTED ISLAND BY 20 TIME BOMBS

One nucliur bomb would do just fine

This topic requires a whole post in itself. I’m hoping that you or Gary will write it as you guys know so much more about the topic than I could ever hope to know. Yeah… the dark past of LEGO that will haunt them forever. ๐Ÿ™„

Maxx, didn’t Kiddiecraft give them permission to use it?

LEGO doesn’t give you garabage to work with . It doesn’t fall apart after you pain stakenly try and put it together. The LEGO company respects there customers.

Reply

Jasper August 30, 2012 at 9:13 PM

Ok, they clearly put fuel or something on and around the model. Otherwise fire wouldn’t have been burning straight on the ground.

studless August 31, 2012 at 1:30 AM

AWESOME!!! always wondered how well megabloks would stand up to a real challenge.

I despise clone brands too. Nace is right, they are kinda cheesy. the only reason I get mega bloks is for Halo. If TLG had the rights to Halo i would ignore mega bloks completely.

They would have tried at one point, but they thought parents would disapprove of war based themes. D;

Congratulations, you’ve just exposed yourself to unhealthy levels of Hydrogen cyanide! Legos and clones are made of ABS plastic, which emits HCN when you burn it.

This kind of thing is why people shouldn’t burn their own garbage.

If I had a second set I would consider burning as a way to make the stone more realistic.
