She’ll leave you in pieces
Is anyone tired of the Lady Dimitrescu discourse yet? Well, I’m sure not. I loved Resident Evil Village‘s high society queen when we first encountered her back at E3. I loved her when we recently discovered she was 200 feet tall (possible exaggeration). And I loved her when she skewered my face off in last month’s PS5 demo.
Since her arrival in the zeitgeist, the good lady and her infectious daughters have gotten the creative juices flowing in a lot of artists. And not just Rule 34 lovers. Take for example these wonderful Minifigs – designed by Redditor and LEGO fan Demonic_Cucumber – that showcase Alcina (we’re on first-name terms, y’see) and her offspring in classic blocko form. Thanks to @LeonHurley for spotting these creepy-cute creations.
Now it should be clarified that these are renders, made via design software Mechabricks, and as such are not physical items. Nor are the designs officially approved by LEGO’s family friendly parent company, surprisingly enough. But still, they look delightful, and certainly get me deep-sighing for a LEGO Resident Evil range – a thoroughly unlikely prospect.
So while Lady D and her daughters remain firmly in the digital realm for now, LEGO video game fans will just have to make do with far cutesier tie-ins, such as Super Mario Bros., Sonic the Hedgehog, and Overwatch. We’ll be seeing more from The House of Dimitrescu when Resident Evil Village launches, May 7, on PS4, PS5, PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
