Literary Classics, In Lego Form

Literary Classics, In Lego Form

It's an unassailable truth that everything can be made better with the inclusion of Lego bricks. Lego can be used to build towering castles, sci-fi cities, complex machines, and now, they can be used to recreate famous scenes from literature.

UK bookstore Waterstones is putting on a contest where readers and Lego enthusiasts alike can enter their own blocky versions of their favorite scenes from books. On their blog, they've provided some examples, such as 

(Mild spoilers ahead if you haven't read/watched Game of Thrones yet)

Game of Thrones' Red Wedding.

Or, if classic literature is more your thing, Waterstones offers up scenes like:

A tour of Dracula's bedchamber, which, of course, just like in the 1897 novel, contains an appearance by Batman.
