Holy crippity crap! It's a giant Lego pharaoh floating down river Thames. Have mummies in the British museum come back as zombies to find that Legos are easier to build with than stone? Not quite.

Actually, the 16-foot Lego sculpture is on the final leg of a 1395 mile publicity tour down the river where it will eventually find a home in Windsor's Legoland Kingdom of the Pharaohs attraction, which is set to open March 21. Apparently, it is the biggest Lego structure ever created with 200,000 individual pieces and a weight of more than one ton. I guess record breaking towers don't count. [Nat Geo via Neatorama]
