Master builders from the VirtuaLUG online LEGO User Group (previously featured here) teamed again to create another awesome collaborative build. This time they’ve turned their attention from Ancient Greece to 1980s American cinema with a phenomenal diorama depicting all of the locations and unforgettable scenes from The Goonies.
Builders contributing to this project include Tyler Halliwell, Davey Sterling, Stacy Sterling, Dennis Price, Betsy Sandberg, Heath Flor, Lee Jones,Chris Phipson, Hans Dendauw, and matt rowntRee. They constructed Mikey’s and Data’s houses, the wishing well park, One-Eyed Willie’s ship, and so much more.
Trying to take in all of the details they worked into this massive build is like going on your own treasure hunt. It’s a LEGO masterpiece and a wonderfully geeky love letter to an awesome movie. The VirtuaLUG team just displayed this diorama at the 2014 BrickCon in Seattle, where it was awarded the prize for Best In Town.
In this picture it’s not closed because I can’t close it by myself (yet) because whenever I do close it the laces slip loosening the corset so I end up with the middle picture but the other day my friend closed it for me and I should have taken a picture of it but oh well.

But wait, Shields also created a video tutorial so you can learn to make your own batch of frightening flapjacks. Don’t forget to add a splatter of deep red Zombie Jam to simultaneously heighten the gore factor and yumminess.
