Dr. Strangelove in Lego

Image credit: 

So here's a bit of Dr. Strangelove re-done in Lego stop-motion. In these two clips, we enjoy two key scenes from the film. They contain major spoilers, in case you haven't seen the film before -- but they're so good, they make me want to watch the entire film done in Lego. My favorite part is Lego Strangelove's alien/Nazi right arm. The Lego figure's right hand has been replaced with a black hand, to match Strangelove's glove in the movie. Brilliant.

Part 1

International diplomacy over the phone is never easy, especially if you're a Lego man in the middle of a nuclear crisis involving the Doomsday Machine. I love the wall-sized map done in Lego.

Part 2

The uploader notes:

Well it's been over two years since I uploaded this and Youtube had blocked it due to copyright. I had to take out the famous scene of Slim Pickens riding the bomb and the nuclear holocaust credits to have this video viewable because those scenes were taken directly from the movie.

The Original Trailer

In case you've never seen it, this trailer for Dr. Strangelove is well worth a look:
