Playmobil fans create bleakly smiling recreations of Oscar nominated films

1

Playmobil is sort of like Lego —it comes in playsets with figures— but while Legos can be used to create disturbing dioramas or even the Bible, there’s something even bleaker and darker about Playmobil. Maybe it’s the plastic faces, or the smooth landscapes. And to prove it, here are some fan made recreations of this year’s Oscar nominees for Best Film. Playmobil Whiplash…you can feel the blood seeping from the hands.

Selma

Boyhood

The Imitation Game

Into the Woods

Whiplash

American Sniper. Okay, this one isn’t quite bleak enough.

  1. Come on, don’t diss Playmobile! ;-)

    I’ll say this for them – they’ve stayed further away from gender segregation that Lego has recently, and it appears to be more inclusive in general. And whereas Lego nowadays has all these grim’n’gritty faces, everyone in Playmobile is still smiling. It appears that these are not real cops and bandits, but pretend-cops and bandits, like in a game.
    Further, the sets are very detailed and realistic; if you’ve got a child who has to undergo surgery, you can do worse than giving them a hospital set, as they can familiarize themselves with it, and act out their (coming) experience.
