“F” is for Fast & Furious

F

It is day six of the April A-to-Z Blogging Challenge. For the letter “F”, I have LEGO-fied the the Fast and the Furious. While there are eight films in the series, I decided to go back to the one that started it all, way back in 2001. I have enjoyed each of these movies for exactly what they are: mindless, entertaining, action movies. I was in college when the first one came out, and I thought Paul Walker was pretty cool. He was definitely one of my early fitness role models around the time I started to get more into the gym. I was saddened by his death in 2013, so I guess this also serves as a bit of a tribute to an icon from my youth.

For this poster, I continued to work on my Photoshop skills. Rather than use the actual logo pulled from somewhere on the web, I recreated the text and effects as best I could. Since I don’t collect LEGO racing cars, I actually designed my own car for this poster, rather than using a set (see photos above). However, I did take some inspiration from an official LEGO set that I found the instructions for online (set 60113). I also made the characters from random Minifigure parts in my collection since The Fast and the Furious is not actually a LEGO licensed theme (see photos below).

How do you feel about The Fast and the Furious franchise? I would love to hear your thoughts and comments in the space below. This post was made as part of my LEGO-fied theme for the A-to-Z Blogging Challenge. To learn more about the challenge, you can click here to visit the official site.

Until next time,

    That car is absolutely terrific. It’s better than some of the kit cars, actually. Good job on figuring it all out.

    I saw one of the Fast & Furious movies and enjoyed it, but haven’t gotten around to any others—I don’t have much time for movies, so it’s no reflection on the F&F franchise, just my own terrible habits of not making time to sit still often enough.

    1. Glad you liked my car! I know what you mean about not making time to sit still often enough.

  2. Not I film franchise that I have become invested in, BUT I love your car MOC and the poster here!

    1. Thanks, it was my first attempt at a MOC car. It took me the better part of a day to get presentable, lol.

  3. Tom,

    Another movie I haven’t seen. Our youngest daughter and her husband are fans of this movie series. Wait….I take that back we may have seen the first one but I can’t swear to it. Regardless if I have or haven’t I do recognize your recreated Lego movie poster which is a nice matchup. You did a fantastic job! Thanks for the revisit yesterday. Have a good day and weekend!
