More than three years have passed since the release of Rockstar Red Dead Redemption 2 to the masses, where it has since become one of the best-selling video games of all time, while continuing to garner acclaim from gamers and critics alike. After all, it’s clear that time certainly hasn’t stopped many players from picking up the game to check out protagonist Arthur Morgan and embark on one of the many adventures that await you across the map. So with such a loyal fan base that has devoted a lot of time to Arthur, it should come as no surprise that gamers are still churning out great Red Dead Redemption 2 tributes.
For the uninitiated, there is much more to do in Red Dead Redemption 2 nothing more than simple shootings, horse riding and ramshackle saloons to get drunk. After all, much of the player base likes to dress up and pimp Arthur Morgan by visiting one of the Red Dead Redemption 2 general stores or tailors. From cow patch vests to spurred shoes, the game has plenty of cowboy cosmetics Arthur can try on for size. But, despite this vast selection of fashionable vintage fashion, Arthur’s blue shirt and brown pants have become the character’s most iconic outfit.
Now, fan art has sought to pay homage to this iconic costume by transforming it from Red Dead Redemption hyper-realistic franchise visuals in a playful LEGO art style. Because of this imaginative take on an otherwise grounded and often insensitive character, designer ItsChris_8776’s post that originally shared the creation quickly garnered over 150 upvotes on Reddit. Many members of the community made sure to praise ItsChris_8776 and the Arthur Morgan block in the answer section, as well as further encouraging them to develop more designs in the future.
It’s safe to say that ItsChris_8776, a creator who is no stranger to building LEGO versions of Red Dead Redemption 2 characters, translated Arthur’s visual characteristics perfectly when creating this blocky design. Everything, including Arthur Morgan’s signature worn blue shirt, battered suspenders and scuffed dark brown pants, is perfectly condensed in this mini figure. Closer inspection reveals only a black scarf around his neck, ready to be pulled over his face for anonymous heists and train robberies. On top of that, ItsChris_8776 made sure to include Arthur’s trusty steed.
In summary, with fun LEGO homages to Red Dead Redemption 2 being constantly shared and celebrated within the community, we hope there will be more inspired creations to come in the future. After all, there are still plenty of visually iconic characters from the game that would make for interesting designs, such as Dutch van der Linde, Sadie Adler, and Javier Escuella.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is available now for PC, PS4, Stadia and Xbox One.
