“Oh, put that thing away, Samurai. We all know what’s going to happen. You’ll swing your sword, I’ll fly away, and probably say something like, “I’ll be back, Samurai!” And then I’ll flutter over the horizon and we probably won’t see each for… about a week. And then we’ll do the same thing again.”
While I could live the rest of my life without seeing another Star Wars or Marvel inspired Lego creation, I just can’t get enough Jack and Aku. Many thanks to Brick Brickolson for adding something new to the woefully short list of good models inspired by the Tartakovsky cartoon. The builder has managed to capture the essence of the show in a single image, and the face on Aku is one of the best I’ve seen. The use of the lime-green fenders is fantastic, although I kind of wish the eye-flames shot just a little higher. It also reminds me of Absurde’s work, and that’s never a bad thing.
I’m gonna cut this post short and go watch the “Chicken Jack” episode, which happens to be my kids favorite, it’s one of the few things that will get them to look up from their phones. Karate and general mayhem will no doubt ensue, a perfect distraction for a Saturday morning. Have a good weekend.
