If there are two things we have great affection for it’s LEGO and PS4 exclusive game The Last of Us. Some genius has managed to blend the two to make The Last of Us LEGO, and it’s pretty amazing.

Reddit user JustAsLost posted a photo of his creation online and the resemblance to the opening moments of The Last of Us where Joel and Ellie have escaped the confines of the city.

Inside, there’s even a lovely little nod to the moment in the original game where Joel plays the guitar to Ellie and she cries, before he promises to teach her how to play. Of course, it’s also a nod to the upcoming The Last of Us: Part 2, which we only have a single trailer for so far. But in that trailer, Ellie is playing the guitar as well.

It’s not the first time that The Last of Us has been brought to life in LEGO though. Earlier this year, designer and LEGO extraordinaire Tim Schwalfenberg created a diorama of The Last of Us using 20,000 LEGO bricks to create the apocalyptic replica.

The attention to detail, like the creation by JustAsLost is seriously impressive, with Schwalfenberg even managing to feature overgrown shrubs, crumbling buildings, and little brick versions of Ellie and Joel.

Naughty Dog’s next game, The Last of Us Part 2 doesn’t yet have a release date, but we’ve got our fingers crossed for a 2017 release date. Although, we’re now running out of year, so no doubt it’ll arrive sometime in 2018.

There are also questions around whether Joel is dead or not? The trailer only shows Ellie, who is now 19 and is the main playable character in the game, and although there’s a man silhouetted in the trailer, there’s no guarantee that it is Joel.
