18,000 Lego bricks later and he created Arkham Asylum

Arkham Asylum in Lego form. The world didn't know that it needed this marvelous build.

Batman is one of the most popular heroes in the DC Universe. He isn't your typical hero. He walks in the chaotic good category, which is what draws people to him. So, games like Arkham Asylum really feed into the fanboy or fangirl love for the character.  

One man, who apparently loves Lego's, wanted to build himself an Arkham Asylum to house the villains of Arkham. The construct is made out of 18,000 lego bricks, took a year of planning, and three months to complete. The man named Dayton (also known as Forgotten Days on Flickr) unveiled his masterpiece at a Brickvention, a Lego convention in Australia.  

Now the building isn't empty don't you worry. In the front yard, you can see guards and the Batmobile. When you look inside Robin and Nightwing are sneaking around. There are rooms occupied by doctors and patients like Poison Ivy. The guard station has screens and on duty guards who are watching camera feeds. Then of course, if you look up top you will see Batman and Catwoman on the roof.  

There are many villains included in this build. The Joker being an obvious one but there are classics like Mr. Freeze and The Penguin as well. It is an astonishing ode to the villains of Arkham surely they will spare the creator when they take over the world one day. 

Do you think this is cool or a waste of time? Let us know in the comments.


Happy to be a gamer!
