Lego 'CubeDudes' By PIXAR Animator 34

An anonymous reader writes "PIXAR Animator Angus MacLane has created an incredible series of LEGO 'CubeDudes' modeled after beloved characters from sci-fi movies and comic books. From Star Wars heroes R2D2 and C-3PO to Toy Story's Buzz Lightyear and Jessie, the pixellated creations bear a remarkable likeness to their forebears. MacLane says, 'When I had a moment here and there I chip away at a few at a time. I'll have the body of one Dude and a head of another that I will be working on at the same time. It takes me about 10-15 minutes to make one CubeDude and I average about two a day.' The hardest part is the color palette — LEGO doesn't make purple bricks, so villains like Lex Luthor, The Joker, and Grimace are a challenge."

I still remember the look on a PC clone owning friend when I showed him my Amiga 3000 running 3 operating systems at the same time. Namely, MSDOS via PC-Task running Turbo C, Mac OS via shapeshifter running MATLAB and browsing the Internet on the Amiga side with the iBrowse browser. Oh and those huge virtual screens and screen dragging so I could see all OSes at once. That was 1992. Imagine what it would be like today if had continued development?
