If Michelangelo were alive today, his "David" and "Pieta" would be made out of Lego. It’s the marble of our generation. And, come to think of it, he’d probably do Star Wars sculptures instead: That’s the Bible of our generation!
Case in point: Lego Master Model Builder Dan Steinenger built this amazing eight-foot-tall R2-D2, complete with blinking lights and astromech bleeping, as part of the Festival of the Masters event at the Lego Store in Disneyworld.
Steinenger was helped by a bunch of screaming, overly-stimulated kids: I assume they must have all been duct taped to the ground, because in my experience, the chance of an intricate Lego sculpture making it through a small child’s visit is essentially equivalent to the chance that I’ll be able to prevent myself from slugging them after they’ve accidentally smashed it into a million pieces. Which is to say, not very likely.
