Futurama is one of the greatest television shows of all time. So it is fitting that Futurama has been recreated in one of the greatest Lego displays. Hopefully if the new Lego Simpsons theme takes off Lego will look into creating some Futurama sets. In the mean time you can create your own.
The World of Tomorrow, built by Pepa Quin, is a massive Lego version of New New York from Futurama. The whole project took over 2 years and originally started with the Planet Express all the way back in 2008. Since then the Futurama project has expanded into an 80″ x 60″ layout. Featuring most of the landmark locations from New New York. The World of Tomorrow made its debut at Brickworld 2010 as a part of the Northern Illinois Lego Train Club display.
The Futurama Lego display is based around the Planet Express. Surprisingly, it being the first MOC in the display it has largely remained unchanged. Even the Owl infestation is present in this awesome build.
The iconic Madison Cube Garden has been included. Perfect for Lego concerts, and other live shows.
For Brickworld 2011 the Taco Bellevue Hospital was added to The World of Tomorrow display. Replacing the MomCorp building.
Underneath New New York is the home of the mutants. The sewers (which happen to be the ruins of New York) is a toxic dump with a whole thriving underground city. The home of Leela’s parents and many adventures. If you look closely you might even find some cameos from Star Wars and Harry Potter down here.
All of the main Futurama characters are present. Most of which have been created using custom decals and even some customs modifications.
Leela, Nibbler, and Zapp.
Amy and Kiff.
Fry visiting the local suicide booth.
Zoidberg rummaging through the trash for dinner, or a friend.
It looks like Scruffy is probably enjoying his copy of Zero-G Juggs.
The famous chef Elzar featuring an extremely well made custom body.
The local police. URL and Smitty.
Robot Santa Claus.
There are many references to Futurama episodes through out the display. For instance these flying Brains trying to catalog every piece of knowledge before destroying the universe.
Almost all of the Minifigures walking around New New York feature custom faces. Achieved by carefully creating and applying decals to blank Minifig heads.
