Lego Olympics
August 18, 2008 7:36 PM   Subscribe

The Hong Kong Lego Users Group created an exhibition called Lego Sport City, a recreation of the Olympic Village in Lego. It's 3m x 8m, and has over 300,000 bricks; you can read more about it here and here. Brickshelf has a very comprehensive collection of photos here, including a lot of shots showing the construction and the smaller details. [Via /.]

Lest we forget the Olympic Village replica built from 140,000 playing cards.

Surely this must be breaking some kind of exclusive-ad-revenue-sponsorship arrangement.

Right?

The Greeks didn't build with their own technology, you know. Only Imperial Stormtroopers could be so precise.

I dunno. I think it's kickass. A bit small, maybe, but still kickass.

Point of order... it's actually a recreation of elements of the Olympic Green and some structures.

The watercube is pretty freakin awesome, though.

My god, that's almost more of an achievement than Michael Phelps' record 8 medals!
