Machete Like You've Never Seen Him Before: In Lego
For the most part, Lego has stuck to child-friendly franchises in its building sets (Harry Potter, Spider-Man, Star Wars, etc.), but while grindhouse cinema will likely never find its way in to building block form, YouTube user gigerbrick is at least going to try and simulate the experience.
Said user has recreated the original fake trailer of Machete from the Robert Rodriguez/Quentin Tarantino double feature Grindhouse using nothing but everyone's favorite childhood construction toy (screw you Lincoln Logs!).

Check out the video below.
