Lincoln guy's set made it into 'The Lego Movie'
By Micah Mertes / World-Herald staff writer


If you've seen the surprisingly awesome "Lego Movie," you might have spotted the Lego creation of a Lincolnite.

There's a scene in "The Lego Movie" in which our hero, Emmet, lists off all the cool stuff made by the (actually quite nefarious) corporation Octan. One of the things that pops up is a Lego-made depiction of George Washington crossing the Delaware. That scene (pictured above) was constructed by Chris Malloy, a 27-year-old graphic designer from Lincoln.

Malloy, who's also the leader of the Lincoln and Omaha LEGO User Group, gave Warner Bros. permission to use his work.

Malloy's had a life-long love of Lego.

“For me,” he said, “it's an art medium. Lego provides a really great outlet for creativity and allows me to translate ideas into a three-dimensional form. It's somewhat constraining because you're working with a limited pallet, and yet it's a very large pallet.”
