If you happen to have a spare $60,000 lying around and you don’t know what to do with it (common problem, happens to us all), then here’s an idea on what to spend it on – a lifesize lego replica of yourself.

Imagine the reactions of friends and family as they come round to your place and standing in the hallway is your lego replica!

Nathan Sawaya is one of six certified Lego professionals in the world and using 16 photos and up to 25,000 bricks, he will do your lego model for you.

Is this something you would like done?   Would you consider $60,000 a reasonable price?   If you had a lifesize lego model of yourself, what would you do with it?   What practical uses could it be used for (apart from showing off!)?

  1. Let's see, on average, a single lego piece in a bukl kit cost around $0.03.. so 25000 * 0.03= $750 USD

    So the lego guy would basically charge $59250 for this time and expertise.. that's not a small price to pay for a replica of yourself :)

    • If you think the per piece cost of a LEGO set is about $0.03, you haven't priced any sets for about 30+ years. It's more like $0.10 – $0.12 per piece. Of course, there is no set with only the pieces you'd need for such a project as this, so the per piece cost will likely be even higher.

      And if that's too much to pay someone else, you could always build one yourself. :P

      • Oh ok… I googled for the price, and took the first think I stumbled on ;) LOL.

        Even at 0.10.. it totals up to about $2500. :)

        • Yeah, shame on you, Kiltak. Someone might have seen your comment and placed an order without checking the price, only to find their entire life savings gone to the blocks. :lol:

  3. If I win the $25 million lotto draw on Saturday…I still wouldn't get one.

    Nice idea but $60,000 on a lego replica of yourself is vanity in the extreme. I would consider giving one to someone as a gift though I suppose.
