Explosive 'Modern Warfare 3' Trailer Recreated with LEGOs

Modern Warfare 3 LEGO Trailer

There’s no denying that when video games are adapted into LEGO form it’s pretty funny. From LEGO Batman to LEGO Harry Potter, LEGO versions of popular franchises have proven to be a lucrative genre, but mostly because of their whimsy and kid-friendly atmosphere.

However, on rare occasions, some clever LEGO owners are able to craft a parody/homage to a popular piece of media (in brick form) that breaks through the “kiddie” barrier and enters the realm of awesome. Such is the case with this LEGO Modern Warfare 3 trailer.

Almost a shot-for-shot LEGO recreation of Modern Warfare 3’s big reveal trailer (including the 3-centric text), this homage to Call of Duty is something else. Stop-motion animation, in and of itself, is something to behold, but when it’s LEGOs and something gamers are very familiar with, it’s all the more impressive.

And this Modern Warfare 3 property is no slouch either — delivering over-the-top action sequence after over-the-top action sequence. Needless to say, choosing this trailer was a bold decision, but, as you’ll see from the final product, it was a gamble that paid off.


Kooberz Studios, the folks responsible for this faux trailer have created LEGO stop-motion homages to other popular trailers from 2011 including Gears of War 3 and Starcraft, but this is by far my favorite. The way they were able to incorporate every beat from that jaw-dropping trailer, from explosion to helicopter crash, should be applauded in and of itself.

And Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 the game? Well, that’s tearing up the sales charts as we speak, and should continue to do so from Black Friday well into 2012. It takes a big person to want to adapt Call of Duty, but it takes small and steady hands to do it in LEGO form.

What do you think of this Modern Warfare 3 trailer recreated in LEGO form? What other popular trailers from 2011 would you like to see a LEGO adaptation of?

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is available now for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
