Love ‘im or hate ‘im, Wes Anderson is one of a handful of truly original filmmakers in the world today. By following his vision instead of heeding those who would tell him that his movies are too precious, he managed to create a distinctive genre all his own, the Wes Anderson Film. We all know exactly what to expect when we see one, and we know it won’t feel like the work of any other filmmaker. Only the Coen Brothers are really in a similar line of business, crafting utterly unique and memorable movies that couldn’t have come from anyone else.

Along the way Anderson has created literally dozens of bizarre and memorable characters, to populate his colorful (often symmetrical) flights of fancy. For a group tribute to the works of Wes Anderson last autumn, Matt Chase designed these amusing schematics of Wes Anderson characters as LEGO figurines. Anderson is so detailed in his costumery and props that these would be a challenge to make on your own—unless you happen to have a torso piece with a grey jacket, white shirt, and red lei on it, a yellow skirt piece with red apples on it, or a handheld rattlesnake piece, you’re going to have to make them yourself somehow.
