There's also hope and change in the land of the brick: Behold the Presidential inauguration of Barack Obama in Lego bricks, complete with every single character that will be at the Capitol, including Lego Oprah.
They have every single character there, from his wife Michelle and his daughters Malia Ann and Sashathe youngest resident of the White House since JFK Jrto Vice President-elect Joe Biden and his wife Jill, President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush, VP Dick Cheney and wife Lynn, George Bush Sr. and Barbara Bush. as well as Dr. Rick Warren.
The fun thing is that every single one of them can actually be recognized (specially Barbara Bush, that's genius), according to Lego designers who did the brick caricatures of the main characters as well as Senator Dianne Feinstein, Aretha Franklin, John Williams and performers Itzhak Perlman, Yo-Yo-Ma, Gabriela Montero, Anthony McGill, the Unites States Marine Band, the San Francisco Boys Chorus and the San Francisco Girls Chorus. Even Oprah Winfrey is in the crowd.
You can see the Lego Presidential inauguration at Legoland California until Memorial Day.
Is this white doin’ right?
No, thats lego doin an eggo.
No matter your politics, that’s pretty cool..
Yeah, best one I've seen is the aircraft carrier. Lego Aircraft Carrier
Totally cool. The only thing I can do w/ Legos is build a square house. A not very good one at that.
