AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - A giant, smiling Lego man was fished out of the sea in the Dutch resort of Zandvoort on Tuesday.
Workers at a drinks stall rescued the 2.5-metre (8-foot) tall model with a yellow head and blue torso.
"We saw something bobbing about in the sea and we decided to take it out of the water," said a stall worker. "It was a life-sized Lego toy."
A woman nearby added: "I saw the Lego toy floating towards the beach from the direction of England."
The toy was later placed in front of the drinks stall.

Do Lego Man evolve from regular man or Lego Apes?
I don’t know, I don’t trust him. I think something like this happens in Troy once.

Boy, those reporters really put in the effort, it took mere moments to find the home of the Dutch artist who created this piece, and apparently decided to toss it off into the water after having it at a summer festival were many took pictures of it.
Thanks for that link.. especially post 6 and 10.. lolol
Dead is amazing with his photoshop skills and sense of humor!
I’m pretty sure that if I saw that thing floating in the sea, it would creep me out.
I have nothing against Legos, my kids have them, but an 8-foot Lego man seems like something out of a childhood nightmare.
Well, at least he is smiling...;^)
What does “no real than you are” supposed to mean? Bad translating job.
It means that we are DOOMED! When Big Blue beat what’s his name, that was just the first step! Now they are creating Lego Man to replace all!
Must have been disturbing to who whoever found this thing!
LOL! I saw that on the OFS and was gonna snag it fr here. Well done!
