Where Are The Tiny Lego Protesters Getting Beat Down By Tiny Lego Police?

Some of us pretend to be grown-ups, while others don't even bother. Thankfully there are people who still act like kids, otherwise we wouldn't have this incredibly detailed Lego representation of the Olympic venues in Beijing, which can be seen as part of an exhibition in Hong Kong. The entire display of the Olympic complex is comprised of 300,000 bricks and 4,500 Lego people.



The Birds Nest Stadium, Swimming Cube and Olympic Village are most impressive, but the detail on every section shows that a lot of time was spent on this. Spent, not wasted - Lego is never a waste of time.

Sure, they took some creative license. There are no flaming tiny Lego monks, pollution clouds, tiny Lego citizens spitting everywhere, or mangled English signs. At the same time, it's doubtful that anyone who constructed these venues was worked to death, so that's a bonus.

I hope the NBA guys are practicing their outdoor shooting....looks like the court will be outside this year.

 

As Wesley Snipes says in White Men Can't Jump "Out here the wind can shift your shot a little to the lefffffffffft or riggggggggght.

I think that would be the soccer field...

Off screen there would be little Lego tanks running down protesters and little security police beating the plastic out them as well. Of course off screen the squalor of a typical 3rd world country is prevalent with no running water or electricity, but hey this is the Chinese Olympics. I'm just wondering if the Chinese Fire Drill and Chinese Crowd Control will be demonstration sports this year?

There's only one word to describe this: Radtascular.

Lego can make Human Rights Violations look cute.

Too bad they can't simulate deadly pollution with legos.
