UK-based graphic designer Dan Shearn is nostalgic for iconic movie characters of the 1980s, and he also fondly remembers the LEGOs he played with while growing up in that decade. Thanks to his superb visual skills, he's now able to combine those fond memories, and visualize some of his (and our) favorite '80s horror, sci-fi and action icons as classic LEGO mini-figures.

On his blog Mungo Loves Candy, Shearn revealed his plan to roll out 80 of these LEGO portraits, and began this week with the first set of images – including Ash from Evil Dead 2, Beetlejuice, Jack and Gracie from Big Trouble in Little China, Judge Dredd, and more (technically The Warriors premiered in 1979, but I'll give him a pass on that one because his Baseball Furies and Riffs figures are so damn cool).
 
There are dozens more '80s LEGO likenesses like these coming soon to this gallery, so stay tuned!
