Note that everything you see is 100% Lego... with some Photoshop for the light effects and backgrounds.

To conclude, I have also created/built a short clip inspired by the subliminal message effects of the ZOO TV tour, turn up the volume and check it out here: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Hope you don't mind, but I uploaded your U2 Lego pics to my Facebook and made the Trabant one my profile pic. I tagged the band and my U2 fan friends. I noted you and where I got them, though.  :D

Great work. People here would probably buy these. I'll take the lemon.

edit: did you use bits of Darth Vader to make Bono?

That looks more like the Emperor circa Return of the Jedi if you ask me. ;D

These are amazing, Yatukuu. :)

Thanks for the great feedbacks!
Yeah, Bono's hoodie is from Star Wars... Here is a close-up of the band:

I'm pretty sure any of the Zoo TV-themed builds would have made better inclusions to the AB Uber set than what the band actually included.

Holy moley, those are awesome!  What a conincidence, too, I just read an article in the Wall Street Journal today about AFOL (adult fans of Legos).  Here's the link:

Dude. I am a HUGE Lego fan. LOVE your work.  And, Johnny, I love the idea of ZooTV themed kits included with the re-issues / box sets.  I think someone should suggest it to Paul McG.
