Fan re-creates GTAV trailer in Lego form

First trailer for Rockstar Games' open-world action game redone in block form.


Lego developer Traveller's Tales has adapted numerous franchises into block form, including Harry Potter, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and most recently, Lord of the Rings. But what would it look like if the company were to make Lego: Grand Theft Auto?

No Caption Provided

One fan has answered that question, creating a Lego rendition of the first Grand Theft Auto V trailer, which was released in November 2011.

The Lego version matches up with the actual trailer and includes the locations, characters, and vehicles from the Rockstar-produced material.

GTAV is officially due out during spring 2013 only for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, though Rockstar cofounder Dan Houser said PC and Wii U versions are "up for consideration."

watching a vid on youtube and saying that you like it doesnt make it a news

it is clearly states at the bottom "Eddie Makuch (Mack-ooh) is a News Editor at GameSpot.". you are cheating. you took a video you like from youtube (which is GTA V, which you seem to love so much and post everything you know about GTA V as a news) and added some "what if" and posted it here as a news. YOU SHOULDN'T GET PAID IF YOU ARE CHEATING

I'm not sure these guys know what "news" is anymore. I'm not saying this isn't interesting, or cool, but I am saying it's not news.

Avatar image for rad8045


everybody is trolling for the weekend !!

Avatar image for JAIBOT

@mtouchprod So where would you post this vid then? You gooseComplain about something worth complaining about

Avatar image for JAIBOT

@mtouchprod Just wondering. Wouldn't be in Cheats or Reviews. If half the news you see on TV actually news?

Avatar image for mtouchprod

Actually, now that I've watched it, it's not interesting, or cool.

Ugh...the amount of people saying "Legos" is driving me crazy..the collective term is "Lego" or "Lego pieces". Why can't people understand that?

Avatar image for DrKill09

@Cillah187 They're Legos. Kiss my ass.

Why does nobody want to develop for the WiiU? The WiiU is gonna miss out on GTAV, Dead Space 3, Borderlands, and many more great titles...

Avatar image for DrBob27

@DiverseGamer Because it's a catch-up console.

Avatar image for TohouAsura

@DiverseGamer Because Nintendo.

Avatar image for flammable_zeus

@DiverseGamer Nintendo has never had a GTA game on their consoles. You have to keep in mind that if game series are ported to it now, there'll be more pressure to keep those franchises on the console in the future. However, with the Wii U barely being more powerful than current gen consoles we all know how hard it'll be to have games on MS and Sony's next console as well. The next PS and Xbox will roll out and then we can expect most current trends to continue.

@flammable_zeus @DiverseGamer

No GTA games on Nintendo systems? GTA: Chinatown Wars was on DS.

Still it would be great if they announced a version of GTA5 for WiiU. Maybe they'll surprise us. Then again, maybe not.

@DiverseGamer I know it's a shame really...

I think most of the time it boils down to the original Wii and it not being very 3rd party friendly. I really hope the WiiU succeeds but its certainly not off to a great start.

Looks better in Lego.

Fantastic, i think R* should give this person a complimentary prize for such a job well done!

Avatar image for rad8045


Give that dude a copy of gta 5

Avatar image for Kashmiro

Wow, that was really impressive. I've done a little stop-motion myself and this must have taken forever to do!

Avatar image for TheClonemaster

@Kashmiro Pretty certain it's not stop motion. From the shinyness and reflections you can see in various places it's a 3D render piece. Legos aren't that shiny or reflective, and that level of shinyness is considered is a dead give away for 3D that 'looks 3D'.

Avatar image for TohouAsura

@TheClonemaster @Kashmiro The only part with 3D render were the plane flying over the villagers, the gas there was 3D. And the end of the trailer with the plane flying over LEGO San Andreas. The res is clearly stop motion.

Avatar image for Stiler

@TheClonemaster @Kashmiro That's not a 3d render, you can see all the reflections and tiny details that would take fooooorever to do in 3d rendering.

Avatar image for kekejefferis

@TheClonemaster @Kashmiro Uhm i'm almost 100% certain thats REAL stop motion there.

Lego is shiny when new and can also be polished to an almost mirror shine...

Good job to that fan of was decent little video.

Avatar image for BIOJECT

That was incredibly impressive. I almost always hate fan-made trailers for anything because they also troll, but this is the exception. Great job!
