We’ve seen plenty of crazy Lego re-creations over the years, from landmark architecture to vintage computers, but we can’t help but be impressed when an entire movie is redone in bricks.

That would be 1939 classic “The Wizard of Oz,” which a team of 12 Lego builders has turned into a marvelous 3D plastic diorama that includes just about every scene in the film, including a rotating tornado.

The collaborators from VirtuaLUG recently showed off the result of their teamwork at Brickworld 2013 Chicago, a display of spectacular Lego builds.

VirtuaLUG has done displays including portrayals of “Alice in Wonderland” and “The Lord of the Rings.” For its “Wizard of Oz” set, the 12 builders in three different countries worked on their components separately and then assembled them in Chicago.
