Those of you who have read the exploits of Captain Nemo might know a thing or two about a sleek and silent submarine prowling on the high seas to catch its unfortunate 'victims'. But, this time the submarine in question is boisterous to say the least, with nothing being subtle about its bearing. We are talking about the Steampunk Shark Submarine Automaton, crafted entirely from the exalted Lego bricks.
Envisaged as a scavenger sub that would feed upon other crippled submarines and then salvage their working parts, the design certainly upholds the vociferous quotient. In fact, we can clearly make out the detailed paraphernalia of the cockpit, teeth, periscope and propellers all drowned in a circuitry of gears, and complimented by a swashing metallic tail fin. There is also a mysterious barrel attached to the 'Victorian Age' powertrain, presumably for holding air or hydraulic fluid.
Finally, coming to the composition factor, Eurobricks modder Legobodger used a specialized version of Lego known as Technic. It alludes to Lego's separate line of kits for engineering oriented purposes with more flexible components like moving parts and gear-trains.
However, beyond the utilization of apt building materials, it is the deft visual allure that is difficult to achieve (especially with Lego's plasticky nature conflicting with Steampunk's metallic essence). But, this time we are mighty impressed with the combination, given the unrestrained glory of an underwater mechanical shark.
