St Pancras Brick by Brick…

I’d seen on twitter that the Lego version of St Pancras International Station was on display in Waterstone Piccadilly – so I was itching to see it in real life.

From what I gather it is a tie up with the launch of Brick City (which has St P on the cover!) and Warren Elsmore, the author, is actually the guy that made it.

Of course with 180,000 bricks it is pretty darn impressive!20130519-142058.jpg

I felt a little critical when I was pointing out errors such as there’s no retail on the lower concourse, Searcy’s Champagne bar is in the wrong place, the Sir John Betjeman statue is missing etc… then I remembered: 180,000 pieces – give the guy a break!!!

I did like what Waterstones/Octopus publishing has done to encourage the kids – they added some additional characters to the exhibit and challenge you to find them… (Hint: Buzz was in the training room). Worth checking out and I think it is there until 2nd June…
