The very talented artist Dan Shearn has put together this gallery of LEGO minifigures illustrations reimagined as pop-culture icons of the 80s. Above, Bruce Campbell.

This is a personal project based on one of my favourite childhood toys, and now my sons favourite as well, Lego. I love the iconic nature of the mini figure it has endured decades and is now a design icon in its own right. I grew up in the 80's and played with lego mostly in the 80's so i decided it would be fun to produce 80 mini figures based on my favourite 80's icons.
