Master of Puppets
Metallica's "Master of Puppets" album cover in lego form.
About this creation


This is the album cover for Master of Puppets, by the band Metallica. It is Metallica's third album, the second one made since they fired Dave Mustaine.

I apologize for the Atari 2600-esque background, I merely wanted something to cover up the Technic that held the hands up. I like the MOC better without the backdrop.

I modeled the hands off of my own, and built from the poses I did. I chose not to put strings on the graves up to the hands because I felt they were not thin enough, and made the scene too busy.

I highly recommend the album.

I think this MOC shows a certain type of courage on your part. It image from the album is so challenging and so... dream like? I would never have had the guts to every TRY it. You nailed it! In fact, I like yours better, because of the odd fact that the original artist cut the tops off of all the cruciform stones in the middle row (except for the first one). If there is a symbolic meaning to this fact, it is lost on me. Given the level of fadelity you have captured everywhere else in the MOC/image, there is no way you missed that. You saw it, and decided to add the heads on your stones. Bravo! I don't know why the original guy cut them off, but your deliberate choice to put them back in, makes good sense and improves the overall image. Attack!

This is worthy of Metallica! Great job, I've never seen this done before. The background is perfect and the hands are cool. A suggestion for the dogtag: use a rubber band with a technic bush on it. You should make And Justice For All... now =D. ~M

i love it!!! but there is one more thing you can do to improve it. you cantake some white yarn and conect the fingures of the hands to the crosses. P.S. can you make a black album model?

SWEET AWSOMENESS!!! and btw, rly sry about that comment with the lyric from a megadeath song xD. it was late and a long time ago before i even knew who the heck "Metallica" was. plus, when i noticed my mistake, mocpages had an error so i couldnt revise my comment but thankfully it seems they've fixed that. but, to let you know, MoP is like my favorite album at the moment, and i can play almost every song on the ablum on mah geetar :D. so yes, once i was a noob, but now i am found! *angels sing* :P

"Smashing through the boundaries, lunacy has found me, cannot stop the battery! Pounding out aggression, turns into obsession, cannot kill the battery! Cannot kill the family, battery is found in me! BATTERY!" So I've got that in my head now, thanks. The hands are brilliant, by the way.
