2K has paid a man with an extraordinarily made-up-sounding name, one Imagine Rigney, to build a Lego diorama loosely based on the cover of the Bioshock Collection. A series with such an exceptional environment is the perfect subject and, like some 21st century Nollekens of knobbly bricks, Rigney was up to the task - and then some.
And here is Imagine Rigney's creation, with either side showing the close-up details.
One of the challenges that both the original artist and Rigney faced was communicating some sense of the series' scope, or in other words moving from the ocean's surface to the upper atmosphere. As you can see Rigney's Bioshock Infinite airships are delightfully dinky, and his sea floor's not half bad either.
Gotta love those splicers. 2K has a gallery of shots and a writeup of the project here, and a trailer showcasing the build is below.
