Lego Arrested Development

My 11 year old loves Arrested Development. He loves Lego. I guess it was inevitable the two would collide. He’s been busy constructing scenes from Arrested Development out of Lego. Here, Gob is about to make the yacht Lucille disappear:

Arrested Development Lego: Gob Makes Yacht Disappear

Here, Gob is hanging out with one of the many girls of low self-esteem during Spring Break:

Girls With Low Self-Esteem Lego

Here, Gob regrets letting Buster in on his magic (OK, illusion!) act:

Arrested Development Lego: Buster & Gob

After I posted these, he got a request on Twitter for the banana stand and Gob on his Segway. So he dived in:

George Michael, Gob & The Banana Stand

Curious if others had the inspiration to combine Legos and Arrested Development, I did some searching. I’m asking to get permission to show photos for some of these. In the meantime, you can click to view those that aren’t embedded.

Here’s a nice one of George Michael in flying suit gear taking on the Tobias the Mole over the miniature village that Gob had Buster build:

The photo was taken by Jordan Chesbrough and is used with permission. The scene was created by Jon Furman.

Here’s the banana stand from Camera Wences, and used with permission:

I like Buster with a hooked hand!

Here’s another of the banana stand with a better Buster, Gob also on a Segway and with flames! The same person also has a great one of the stair car.

    Lego Arrested Development — it’s this sort of thing that the internet was made for.

    Great job by your son. It makes me wonder what kind of a community a lego sitcom site could build ( is available btw:))

    Those are cute. I watched a few episodes of Arrested Development when it first came out but didn’t have the time to stay with the series, unfortunately. However, it is a hilarious show.

    Your son is very talented and very patient I must say to sit still and put all that together. :)

    Great job boys! I saw this is Coast Magazine and had to check it out. I created the show Arrested Development (and have two daughters right around your age, too, btw) and am so impressed and flattered that you did this (and inspired others to do the same.) You know what else would be cool? A staircar. but no pressure. I don’t want you to have to feel like me when it comes to the Arrested Development movie.

    Great work, dudes. I’ll bet you’re hard working little guys — so thank you. Oh, by the way, my daughters are named Maisie and Phoebe, and I combined the names to make Maeby. kind of cool, huh?

    Take care!

    Thanks for your comment, Mitchell. It’s very kind and made my boys day! They are also hard at work building that staircar. Watch for an update :)

    And no pressure on that movie. Except, any time the boys see one of the Arrested Development cast in a trailer for another movie, they get very excited and start asking if that’s the Arrested Development movie finally here.

    OK Mr. Hurwitz,
    I love the show and, I must admit, part of the reason why is I probably know a little too much about Orange County, growing up in Newport Beach. My question for you is very specific: in the episode where Maeby uses a debate tournament in Sacramento as an excuse to avoid school (and make a movie) is that a reference to Estancia High School and Ruth Slocum or Jennie Pancake?
