80s movies remembered in LEGO

Above mullets, power ballads and double denim, the greatest legacy of 80s is undoubtedly its fine cinematic offerings.

From Robocop to The Shining, Teen Wolf to Karate Kid, it was a decade of guilty pleasures and cult classics whose charm endures to this day. An awful lot like LEGO. Right?

Fine, it's an obscure link - but it's the best we could to do to introduce Hero Complex Gallery's exhibition of LEGO Memories by Dan Shearn: a recollection of the 80s through the medium of blocky LEGO figures.

On display at the LA gallery from 20 - 29 June, you'll be able to nab prints of your favourite work for £13 ($20) from 21 June. Head over to Shearn's Behance site to see more of his work and drop us a line if you fancy joining our petition to demand LEGO make all of these minifigs a reality.
