Seen at the recent 87th Academy Awards were the Oscar trophy made from LEGO! SlashFilm shares a "how-to" video, and you can download the instructions and bricks needed here. Ironically, "The Lego Movie" did not win the Best Animated feature award … in fact, the movie was not even nominated this year.
"The team behind The Lego Movie approached me. They wanted to do something extra special for the Academy Award performance of best song nominee ‘Everything is Awesome.’ They had seen my earlier version of a Lego Oscar statue, and I was happy to take on the challenge.
Each statuette consisted of 500 bricks glued together — which kind of goes against the message of The Lego Movie, but we’ll let it slide. And Sawaya hopes everyone will be able to make their own someday." -shared New York-based Lego artist Nathan Sawaya on cnet.com
