    How LEGO Appeared on CW's The Flash
    Hot Bionicle NewsSunday, June 4th, 2017 at 12:19am by Benjamin, BZPower Reporter

    Earlier this year, Team Flash on the CW's Flash TV show constructed a plan of attack using LEGO. Specifically, resourceful nerd Cisco had a brick-built diorama detailing what they knew and who was in trouble. Thankfully BZP Reporter Danny knew who the creation was sourced from, who BZPower reached out to for the full story. Read on to see just how LEGO appeared in yet another TV show.

    Co-builder David Guedes (Brick Lettuce on Flickr) was able to answer some questions about the display. He came on board to assist Allan (a-corb on Flickr) after the studio sourced help from the local Vancouver LUG. In under two weeks they figured out what the area looked like and recreated it out of LEGO bricks.

    "They wanted it to look pretty similar to the real life location," said Guedes. "Our original design was a bit more complicated though. At first we wanted to have road plates, tiled sidewalks and a sloping hill. When we pitched it to the studio, they said they wanted it to look 'more LEGOey,' which is understandable: if it's LEGO they wanna see studs."

    The studio addressed what the focal points were to be, based on plot cues we knew, like a set of stairs. Personally, I am surprised we see chrome-painted minifig parts, which obviously uses Nexo Knights' Axl's pieces. It is also funny that the Flash is represented as a red and gold spaceman instead of, you know, the Flash minifig (which probably does not exist in-universe).

    Check out the screen shots on Guedes' flickr to appreciate just how accurate they were able to get the model. Allan posted a work in progress image to his flickr.

    Is Guedes a Flash fan? He considered himself a casual fan until working on the build. "With a new vested interested in the show, I can now say my fandom of the show is now more than 'casual!'" he said.
