LEGO AMERICANA

Lego have managed to make an animated movie about their company seem appealing, so why not a cross-country tour of famous U.S. buildings and monuments constructed entirely of little plastic blocks? "The Lego Americana Roadshow took over our towne center where I work this week with large-scale Lego replicas of the Statue of Liberty, Washington Monument, White House, Liberty Bell, U.S. Capitol, Jefferson Memorial and many more. What a treat. Not being a huge mall shopper, I very seldom leave the confines of our luxury department store, but when going to get another cup of java and  finding these national treasures depicted in LEGO bricks strewn throughout the shopping center was tons of fun!!!! I can't even imagine how long these took........
 
I don't know about you, but my Lego creations were sorry as a kid compared to these!
Have a great weekend!!!!!

  2. "These are not your father's Legos." We might have been able to conceive the plan, but the kits we had as a kid would never have managed it.

    Happy Friday, mistress. Have a great weekend, and a wonderful beginning to April. Hugs!

  3. These are magnificent! Well worth taking a stroll to the mall for.
    I love Lego! In a year or two, Babyzilla will be old enough to have some sets of her own without eating them, then Uncle IDV can spend, spend, SPEND (although not enough to make one of these creations) without feeling guilty.

  4. I had no desire to see the movie--and I wasn't a Lego kid--but I'd love to see these creations!

    1. seem we all fall in the Lego or Lincoln Log camp. I did enjoy building those cute cabins with the green plank roofs. Are Lincoln Logs even around anymore?

    The photos are great - these are truly extraordinary creations.

  6. Some people just have waaaaaaaaay too much time (and too many Legos) on their hands. Still, impressive.

  11. Some of the Lego sets I saw in the store look pretty amazing compared to what we had as kids. I saw one of the Flatiron Building for $40, and if I had a place to display it I'd buy it in a heartbeat and build it.

  12. I can't help but wonder if the Lego Congress is also filled with buffoons?
