LEGO Shaun of the Dead Winchester Pub Instructions

Our friends over at Brick Fanatics is starting a new feature on their site where they’ll be sharing LEGO MOC instructions from different various artists who submit their content. If you remember last year, the LEGO CUUSOO Shaun of the Dead Winchester Pub project by Greg Coquelz, aka Yatkuu, was rejected by the LEGO Jury even though it had a massive following from supporters including Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright. You’ll be glad to know that Greg has provided the instructions for you to download for free. So if you’ve been wanting to build your own Winchester Pub, well here’s your chance.

Greg has also provided instructions of the Stargate Heavy Machine Gun for free. It doesn’t stop there! There are also premium instructions that you can purchase for a very affordable price of $2 for his Stargate Bookends (see below image). These instructions are also available through Brick Fanatics.

I think this is a very interesting concept by Brick Fanatics because maybe you’ve seen a MOC that you really like and would like to recreate it. If that artist decides to submit their instructions to BF, you can probably get for a certain price or even for free. You’ll be sure that we’ll be featuring more submitted instructions as they become available.

With this in mind we have decided that – good though the model is – the film Shaun of the Dead contains content that is not appropriate for our core target audience of children ages 6-11.

Long before the Winchester received mainstream media attention, Greg (Yatkuu) contacted us in earnest to see if his project was acceptable. We recognized the potential conflict, but didn’t see a reason to remove the project. The model was presented tastefully and we thought it deserved fair consideration. With 10,000 supporters, the Winchester earned the opportunity to receive the full LEGO Review.

Greg has been a pleasure to work with throughout this process. We’re impressed by his model, grateful for his constructive approach with us, and we are sad to disappoint such a devoted LEGO fan.

We appreciate the passion exhibited for new product ideas on LEGO CUUSOO. Opening ourselves to new product suggestions invites popular ideas that don’t always fit our brand. This is the first time we’ve felt that we should turn … Continue
