My friend Tristan Cain and I built this scene collaboratively in less than 3 hours. It depicts an alien vessel—a UFO—alighting upon an ancient Greek-inspired city. Little do the city’s awestruck inhabitants realize: the lush forest around their home is actually what these invaders are after!

  • UFO spins around its axis by a motorized system of Tristan’s design

  • City includes a towering beacon, an aqueduct bridge, a majestic temple, a tall obelisk, and several shrines

  • UFO features bright color scheme, mechanical detailing, and dynamic, spinning beams

  • Model measures more than 18” (45cm) wide and over 14” (35cm) tall

This model was featured on The Brothers Brick.
