Lego craftsman Mike Doyle has taken to Kickstarter to fund a series of frankly amazing Lego builds.
“Contact 1” is the first of these, a staggering 200,000-brick Lego masterpiece that celebrates “spirituality, peaceful ET contact and fantastical worlds.” Mike adds that the entire series will “promote the beauty of all intelligent life forms as extensions of our family.”
Whether you’re nodding in approval or plain baffled by Mike’s motives (we’re in the latter camp; sorry, Mike), there’s no denying the colossal scale of this blocky showpiece is pretty incredible. At almost five feet high and six feet wide, it’s comfortably one of the largest, most ambitious Lego builds we’ve encountered.
In his Kickstarter campaign, Mike offers those who donate the chance to own prints of his amazing monument.
There are also DIY Lego kits (on a much smaller scale, obviously) to anyone who makes a bigger contribution; these will feature individual structures from “Contact 1.”
If you’d like to see more of this masterpiece, there are pictures below, as well as the Kickstarter campaign video being used by Mike.
If you’d like to donate (the campaign has already brought in $6,293 from 66 backers, passing its original $1,000 goal with 44 days to go), you can do so here.
