LEGO builder Remi Gagne's recreation of Zelda's Hylian shield is impressive enough at a distance, but the real treat here is in the detail.

It's where you get an idea of not only the scale of the project, but the amount of work that went into it. Like, it would have been easy to do the front and just stop, but no, the back of the shield is there too, right down to the arm straps.
