Japan may normally be a country know for it’s social order and organisation, but when it comes to the world of LEGO, Tokyo is portrayed as a sprawling city full of decay and decadence.

This year’s Brickworld — the convention for LEGO enthusiasts —  played host to a futuristic Neo-Tokyo that models itself on many of the great cyberpunk novels and movies, many of which feature cities in a state of disrepair, torn apart by gangs, corruption and countless other societal ills. There’s also an element of the supernatural in most, especially if the timeless classic Akira is anything to go by.

Created by a team of seven, consisting of team lead Carter Baldwin, working alongside Nate BrillKyle VrezeForest KingIgnacio BernaldezSam WormuthAlex Valentino, and Chris Edwards.

To create such a unique urban environment – including the many interesting characters that dwell within – obscure pieces from Lego’s Scala collection had to be used. Click through the gallery below to see all the intricacies of this fictional metropolis.
