Many LEGO creations showcased by geeks across the web involve thousands upon thousands of bricks to create perfectly scaled recreations of buildings, movie scenes, and more. In this case, the goal is to recreate an iconic Sci-Fi scene with as few bricks as possible.
Courtesy of the LEGO enthusiast site The Living Brick, the Microscale Sci-Fi LEGO Contest or Mi-Fi for short, combines Sci-Fi with tiny, tiny, recreations of scenes from shows and movies in the genre. Hit up the group’s Flickr pool for the contest to check out all the great submissions–including a tiny Star Gate, a mini Star Destroyer, and a surprisingly detailed scene from Planet of the Apes.
