Kind Of Awesome: The News Of 2011 In Lego

The Guardian‘s account on Flickr has collated a gallery of photographs of Lego figures recreating the scenes of the news from this year.

They’re particularly effective when they recreate an already recognisable photo, as in the shot of “President Obama” and his national security team watching the Osama Bin Laden raid.

Here are my favourites, but check out the gallery for the rest:

About elentari86

Apparently blogs need to cover a certain niche in order to attract readers. My aim is not to attract readers. I don't deny it would be nice not to just be spouting to myself, but the reason I set this blog up was to give myself somewhere to write down my thoughts. If anyone reads them, that's a bonus. This blog will cover a mix of things - anything that comes to mind that I want to write about. I make no promises about how often I will publish new content.

    This is so awesome! The lego mugs certainly haven’t changed much since I was a kid…almost large enough for us to drink from 😉

    It’s a pretty cool idea, isn’t it? Kudos to the people who took the time to do it! Thanks for reading, both.

    I used to adore lego as akid and actually think it is ageless
