Olympic Park replica made of LEGO
A man has spent 300 painstaking hours building a replica of the London 2012 Olympic Park - entirely from LEGO.
Warren Elsmore who claims his official job title to be a 'freelance LEGO artist' crafted the miniature version of the Olympic venue using 250,000 bricks.
This LEGO world features all the standout venues and structures: from Anish Kapoor's Orbit, to the swooping roof of the Aquatics Centre and, of course, the grand Olympic Stadium.
Elsmore, who lives in Edinburgh and creates unique, one-off LEGO models for individuals and corporate companies said: "My colleague and I built the Olympic model over a three week period. For this display, I planned very little in advance and most of the model was free built - simply by looking at pictures of the site and building what I see.
"Every brick we use is a standard LEGO element, with no painting, gluing or non-LEGO parts."

Is there a point to wasting 300 hours of his life? I'd rather spend that time by going on holiday.
Because this guy does it for a living, and he sold his last lego piece for over £80,000.... this one no doubt over 100k ... Thats not bad for 300 hours work.
this guy needs to get a life and a decent job
Nothing even moves? Yawn.
Yeah it's so easy for us as adults to say "get a life, get a girlfriend, get a real job". But have we forgotten the fun we had with LEGO when we were kids? Someone has to create these, and by the size of this creation I would expect he was commissioned.
