Just when you think you've seen it all with Lego, along comes this guy. A Japanese Lego builder going by the YouTube handle "talapz" has rendered both Todai-ji and Kinkaku-ji, two World Heritage sites and famous Japanese temples in Nara and Kyoto, respectively, in Lego. But the crazy part is he designed the structures to be collapsible, like a pop-up book.
"I made this in about two months," is his only description of the first structure. Of the second, he says "There is a possibility that there are mistakes in the design drawing." Trust us, dude, no one cares if you're off by a brick or two!
