4.8 million pieces of Lego with a street value of £10,000,000

thanks for solving a mystery. I was wondering what kind of Lego MegaWorld they planned to build with 4.8 meter lego bricks.

And they say BB no longer covers stories about Wonderful Things.


#5

Whatever happened to the rubber ducks? Are they still washing up to places?


#6

You have to watch out when dealing with street Lego. You never know if it’s the real stuff, or if it’s been cut with Mega Bloks…


#7

It was the 1:1 Death Star set for Lego Star Wars.


#8

Lego washing up on a beach? That must be the beach from hell.

Here’s an update from CNN.

Thanks. :slight_smile:


#11

You’re welcome - You asking about them made me curious, too! :slight_smile:


#12

:slight_smile: BTW, your catgrin avatar is a spider. :stuck_out_tongue:


#13

It’s a pic I shot.


#14

I’ve walked on worse. Ever been to a British “beach”?

#16

Ah, but it doesn’t fit with your name. Maybe it should be “spidergrin”. :smiley:


#17

Maybe it’s a cat-sized spider? A pet spider taught to purr?

…imagines such spider, behaving like a cat and chasing a laser pointer, when it does not sleep in its web

I’d like to see proof of that in action. :stuck_out_tongue:


#19

At least it’s not a cat-snake.

Okaaay….

My nickname is Cat.

I take pictures of insects (and arachnids). Jumping spiders are my favorite type of spider to take pictures of because they’ll sit there and pose for the camera while doing tiny war dances. They’re also really low risk for spiders. Typically they won’t even try to bite you - they’re having too much fun making themselves “look big”. So the picture represents something that makes me - “Cat” - happy - “grin”. BTW: the nickname isn’t from the animal cat - it’s from Red Dwarf.
