Fan Builds Mass Effect's Normandy With Lego's

Ben Caulkins replica of the Normandy is four feet long with a nineteen inch wing span.

For some, the best way to celebrate their love of something is to simply enjoy it over and over again. They'll watch a movie hundreds of times, committing every frame to memory so that in moments of boredom they can simply shut their eyes and let the high definition memories come rushing back. Others celebrate their fandom by creating things. They'll write, draw, or maybe violate a few copyrights and knit a Firefly hat. Some, however, need deeper, more insane ways to prove their commitment to a franchise.

Ben Caulkins, for instance, builds things with Legos. Recently, to show off both his love of Mass Effect and mad LEGO skills, he pieced together an epic replica of the Normandy that looks so good he could probably box the thing up and sell it at Toys R' Us. Measuring a whopping four feet in length and possessing a wing span of nineteen inches, Caulkins replica looks to be based on the Normandy from Mass Effect 2. Readers living in the Chicago area can go see Caulkin's Normandy, which will be on exhibit at the upcoming Brickworld convention taking place this weekend.
While the Normandy is arguably his most impressive bit of work, it's not the only Mass Effect vehicle he's recreated. Posted to his Flickr account are pictures of a custom version of the Mako as well as a gigantic model of a Covenant Assault Carrier from Halo, among others.
