Lego is one of the most versatile creation tools in the world, allowing users to assemble a practically limitless array of different things. While being able to build a small house out of Lego bricks was akin to a rite of passage for many children, the size and complexity of some creations out there are enough to destroy your Lego-building ego forever. Truly, the only limit in Lego building is imagination (and time, money, technical know-how…but nevermind all that). The internet is jam-packed with impressive examples of Lego ingenuity and while it would be absurd to suggest that the following nine creations are the greatest things ever made out of Lego, they are definitely some of the coolest.
9. Freddie Mercury
Lego enthusiast Iain Heath, aka Ochre Jelly, created this fantastic tribute to the late Queen vocalist in 2011, but it still stands as one of the most striking Lego recreations of an iconic celebrity. Heath’s statue does a great job of capturing Freddie Mercury in his prime and the work on the singer’s distinctive yellow jacket (it actually looks like it’s flowing) is particularly impressive.
