John Lasseter’s Tin Toy was realized through some groundbreaking computer animation back in 1988. And now, 27 years later, the short film’s main character, Tinny, has been realized again through Lego using some clever building techniques.
The credit for this build goes to Flickr’s Koen who’s done an admirable job at not only recreating Tinny’s multiple musical instruments, but also his innocent, yet terrified, wide-eyed stare. Back in 2010 a limited edition collectible version of Tinny was produced by Disney, but Lego needs to do Pixar fans another solid and turn this creation into a legit set.
