Arrested Development + Lego = Awesome Sauce

As a huge fan of the canceled television show Arrested Development (I couldn’t have been more proud of my husband when he named his Fantasy Football team “Steve Holt!” one year), I am LOVING these meticulously-detailed pieces by Matt De Lanoy. Photographed by Pepa Quin, the display was a wonderful addition to Brickworld 2011 in Chicago.


The model home, with all of the major characters.


The stair car.


Michael and his son George Michael.


Maeby holding a script (notice George Michael in the background, staring at her).


Gob with his rude puppet Franklin (and George in the background).


Lindsay and Tobias in his Blue Man Group getup.


Lucille and Buster.

Via Flavorwire.

P.S. — I know that an Arrested Development movie is in the works, but I am not too sure that it will be on par with the television series as too much time has passed since the show last aired. :-(

    OMG I LOVE THIS!!! Lindsey and Tobias were perfect and the stair case car? I want the whole this! If Lego sold a kit, I’d buy it!

  5. So to be honest… not a huge AD fan(only saw a few episodes and never got into it) But I dig legos!

    And of course now guess what I have added to my Netflix queue!

  6. OMG! This is great!!! I was stationed with a guy, in Germany, named Steve Holt…I kid you not. He didn’t watch the show :( That didn’t stop me from doing a double upward fist pump every time I saw him.
