I’m not sure if I can call “The Duel” here the greatest stop-motion Lego video of all time — after all, that insanely violent Captain America one was pretty great — but it’s certainly one of the best. Even if you don’t want to see a Lego minifigure slicing the shit out of hundreds of bizarre Lego opponents, I highly recommend watching it anyways just for the reveal of the adversary at the end. It — you know what, it does make “The Duel” the greatest stop-motion Lego video of all time. Deal with it. And infinite thanks to Ryan A. for the tip.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
