Giant LEGO dioramas by OliveSeon

Korean professional building team OliveSeon is well known for their amazing large LEGO dioramas. Below I will show you some of my favorite ones from their collection. Photographing such huge models is tricky, and it is hard to see all the details from just one overall image, so I recommend you check out the more detailed pictures at their flickr gallery. Many of these models are displayed at local LEGO stores, conventions, and other events. 🙂

LEGO Diorama by OliveSeon - Volcano

Do you think that the volcanoes in the new LEGO City Volcano sets are too small? Well, here is a much more appropriately sized lava, fire and smoke spewing volcano as a backdrop for these otherwise great LEGO City sets.

LEGO Diorama by OliveSeon - City

The LEGO City display above seamlessly blends together official LEGO sets with custom models. My favorite part is the shuttle taking off, but it might be a tad too close to residential areas.

LEGO Diorama by OliveSeon - Star Wars

If you are a Star Wars fan, you will love this huge and gorgeously greebled LEGO Star Wars diorama, with the X-wings being chased down by Darth Vader and company in the trenches of the Death Star.

LEGO Diorama by OliveSeon - Ghostbusters

In this Ghostbusters scene you will again see variations of standard LEGO City and LEGO Creator sets seamlessly integrated to build up the city – only to be attacked by a properly sized Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

LEGO Diorama by OliveSeon - Pacific Rim

Attack by a Kaiju from the movie Pacific Rim. The giant mech grabbing a battleship and hurling it as a weapon was one of the most trilling moments in the film. Cities being attacked by giant monsters is a popular subject of these displays.

LEGO Diorama by OliveSeon - War

Here is another large diorama with destruction as its main theme. Yet this falling city still looks poetically beautiful. I particularly like the angled positioning of the bridge.

LEGO Diorama by OliveSeon - Castle

There are also a number of large LEGO Castle scenes built by the team. It is worth checking out the close-up pictures to make out all the neat details. Also, they have some displays with Korean castles as well.

Again, these are just some samples of the work of this talented group of Korean LEGO fans. You can see more in their flickr gallery. You can also check out their YouTube channel for some walk-through videos (I have included a few of them in the video-player above). While individual LEGO fans may not have enough LEGO elements to build such large dioramas, they can still use these models for inspiration. For example a lot of us collect the LEGO Modular Buildings, and we all tend to display them in a row on a shelf. But as you can see in the pictures above, you can make your layout a lot more interesting and unique by displaying the same buildings on forked roads and uneven terrains, and by incorporating bridges, underground trains, backgrounds and more. Throw in some action with giant monsters and heroic minifigs, and your previously standard layout really comes to life. 😈

Shop LEGO Creator Modulars

What do you think? How do you like these LEGO dioramas? Do you find them inspiring? Did you get any ideas that you could add to your own LEGO creations even if on a smaller scale? Feel free to share your thoughts and ideas in the comment section below! 😉

    Wow! That volcano is awesome! I also really like the Star Wars one and the Pacific Rim one. I wonder if they are keep reusing the same modulars, or they have multiple copies of each.

      My guess is that they recycle models for the new ones, but they definitely have more than one of each Modular Building, as you can see them stacked to become higher building in some of the dioramas. Looks like they especially like the Town Hall. 😀

      Yeah, these would be amazing to see in person! 😀

    These are massive and really well done. I want to see their lego room! The Star Wars one is a perfect example for greebling!

      If you go to their YouTube channel, in some of their videos you can see their LEGO building area. It is big. 😀

    Simply amazing… the Star Wars one is so cool because of it’s scale. Thanks for sharing 😀

    Wow! I think my favorite would be the volcano! I just find the lava amazing! Wouldn’t it be awesome to meet these guys in real life?

    Sweet… Did you get knowledge of them through your Creator interview, or was it before that…

    Battleships as weapons, yeah… I remember that old anime Fist of the North Star which started out with ships having crashed through skyscrapers in a barren apocalyptic landscape… (I don’t remember if they were battleships, though…)

      I actually have been following them for years on flickr. 🙂
