Lovecraftian Horrors are something you do not see so much in Lego. There has been a rise in their interest and Lego has even tried creating their own (Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum – 76060). Here is Micah Beideman’s horrific Lego monster, titled Tan’thu: The Ancient Entity. This MOC does a great job of creating the bulging and bulbous body. The eyes and tentacles display a lot of “inside-out” Lego tires. A somewhat popular technique in MOCs these days. The gaping maw is technically impressive. The repetition of elements works extremely well. And, by including a ship (at the center of the display) acting as a reference the humongous size of this Entity is presented.
If you were wondering exactly what was going on behind the scenes to create this beast. Check out the assembly of some of the eyes below. There are over 70 eyes that needed to be built.
