Every fan has a different way of showing their love. Some collect merchandise of a series, some choose to show their love through cosplay, some decide that permanence is the best way through tattoos.
For the members of Titans Creations, it is building dioramas based on their favourite shows using their favourite medium, LEGO bricks.
Founded in 2014, Titans Creations is a My Own Creation (M.O.C) focus group that’s based in Singapore. Through monthly meetups and thematic M.O.C contests, they hope to promote creativity among their members through M.O.C using original LEGO bricks. The group has made headlines before for building an impressive 10,000-piece LEGO Millenium Falcon back in 2015.
Titans Creation’s newest diorama consists of 150,000 individual LEGO bricks which took its two builders Evan Chang and Kelvin Low around 80 hours to finish building.
Titled ‘Neo Isla Nebula’, the diorama pulls from two of the biggest classics in film, namely Jurassic Park and Back to the Future.
According to Titans Creations, here is the official description for Neo Isla Nebula.
Developed in secret, on this secret island the research on Dinosaurs continues. The research facility is etched deep in the heart of a dormant volcano, fortified and heavily guarded. Dinosaurs are captured and researched further to perfect their dino replication tech. A train ferries cargo to and fro from the docks. The mountain itself is not fully explored and some secrets lie within its deep catacombs.
One half of the diorama is themed after the 1993 sci-fi adventure classic by Steven Spielberg, Jurassic Park and there are tons of easter eggs from not only Jurassic Park but also other classics such as Star Wars for fans to spot. Such as a Millenium Falcon flying conspicuously beside a Pterodactyl, or Chewbacca feasting on what looks like roasted Pterodactyl wings.
Meanwhile, on the other half of the diorama, you will find the town of Hill Valley, California, where Robert Zemeckis’ 1985 classic Back to the Future was based in. Much like its other half, the Back to the Future diorama also features a number of fun easter eggs from other movies, both old and new. Titans Creations has also based their Back to the Future diorama on all three films in the series so be sure to look out for callbacks to all three films.
Take a look for yourself and see if you can spot the many easter eggs hidden inside!
To top it all off, there is a train that runs around the outskirts of Neo Isla Nebula, through both Jurassic Park and Back to the Future.
If that ain’t just plain cool, then we don’t know what is.
You can also check out our video to see if you can spot more easter eggs from Marvel, Harry Potter, Stranger Things and more.
Neo Isla Nebula will be on display at the upcoming Singapore Comic Con 2019 which will be taking place on December 7 – 8 at Marina Bay Sands. If you have questions about the diorama, you can feel free to ask Evan, Kelvin, as well as some of the members of Titans Creations who will be down at SGCC.
