DOOM Cacodemon

Updated: Dec 14, 2020

I was, unfortunately, a bit too young and sheltered to be exposed to the original DOOM games that helped usher in the age of the first-person-shooter. When DOOM 2016 was released, however, I was nothing short of obsessed with the game. The absolute monster hell of the DOOM universe was grotesque and fascinating, and Jerac’s rendition of the fearsome floating Cacodemon is instantly recognizable. This could be no easy feat; building complex spherical objects with LEGO bricks is a challenge to any builder.

The round and spiky Cacodemon is certainly the center of attention with its brilliant use of minifig arms, sausages, and disks, but everything about this scene is well done and deserves a good looking-over. The industrial, greebly door, the color scheme and texture of the walls, and the hexagonal floor design are all sleek as a SNOT (studs-not-on-top) dream. But the damage done to our heroic DOOM guy -an effective combination of a stuffed rubber band paired with red and maroon tiles- is the true eye candy of this scene. I’m sure our Cacodemon would agree.
