The debut of what may be the worst television movie concept to date has inspired the creation of the LEGO Sharknado. Moving away from the replication of cultural landmarks, blockbuster films and iconic figures, the LEGO Sharknado shows the world that this medium can be brought back to its playful and imaginative roots from time to time by adults.
Created by Seattle-based LEGO artist Iain Heath, who is also known as Ochre Jelly, the LEGO Sharknado takes on the form of the terrifying tornado with one hungry shark snapping just outside of it. The artist writes, "Amazingly, this model actually stands up on its own (although its a bit wobbly, being very top-heavy). If I have the time I may add more sharks, improve the lettering, and strengthen it up enough to display at BrickCon."
