PiercingMetal Thoughts: Isn’t this awesome? Holy mackerel what an imposing statue and one that I wish I was going to be able to see in person. Most of you already know we are not doing SDCC so if you get to this take some photos and load to Instagram. I’ll close up now by saying to check out some of the LEGO builder playsets that focused on the recent film which hits home video in the coming weeks. Some cool links are below for you to peruse. Until we meet again. Oh and before I go please enjoy the video clip that shows this great statue being built.
