A nice tribute.
It’s not as inspiring as the original in Iwo Jima, but I thought this was such an amazing tribute created by the LEGO Master Builders.
At least 1,000 pieces.

Wow! I would have loved to work on it.
Dude you and me both. It looked pretty awesome. If you’re ever in Cali you definitely have to go bring a niece or nephew with you they’ll love it!
Amazing what one can build with LEGO. 🙂
It was pretty cool. They have a bunch of different landmarks, but this one was definitely a monument.
Probably at least 10,000 pieces there. It is a sizeable monument. And a very life-like one indeed. Hope it withstands wind 🙂
Definitely at least 10,000. A very cool sight.
That is an amazing Lego creation. Have a great Easter.
Ohhhhhhhh! It is a super amazing site to see. If you ever make your way to California I know your son will love it! Have a great Easter my friend 🙂
This is full of challenge–the original event, the photography challenge, and the challenge in recreating it in Legos. Wow.
Thanks so much! I was hoping someone would get the layers of meaning beyond the awesomeness of the LEGO creation. A definite check-me out landmark on the LEGO tour. 🙂
Guat, if you had said this was made out of over 100,000 pieces I would not have been surprised. It’s amazing that people can figure out how to do that. I barely have hand-eye coordination while eating a pear.
You know what? It may be. Those pieces are pretty small and the structure is pretty amazing. I can’t believe they actually have people called LEGO Master Builders and they actually are creative enough to build something this awesome. It is pretty cool. I would need some serious direction here and like a year of free time 🙂
