A Glimpse into the Future

If you’ve been reading BrickSamurai for a while, you’ve noticed I like to say that Ninjago City is my favorite set every once in a while (once or twice a month). Keeping that in mind you won’t find it strange that this piece, created by the brilliant Bob De Quatre, brought me kid-like joy. Seems like my collection of Ninjago-City-expanding ideas is slowly expanding. That’s puntastic.

My favorite part of this build is definitely the fact that it’s an (even more) futuristic take on Ninjago. Furthermore, it keeps all the futuristic additions anime-like, which definitely is one source of inspiration for Ninjago and one which I love. Obviously, this piece was also inspired by Star Wars aesthetics, which I will let slide – just this one time! There’s lots of stuff going on in the build, starting from the streets, over the older buildings, all the way to the high rises – making it obvious that the buildings are just a background (although beautiful) for all the action. The build is filled with amazing details and techniques, but, somehow, I am most impressed with the small things like the billboard and the sliding doors – I’ll have to figure out how those were made!
