Lego World Cup Final

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you probably noticed that the Fifa World Cup final was on last weekend with Mario Götze grabbing the winner in extra time for the Germans.  With the hype and celebrations slowly fading I’ve got just one more World Cup related post to round it all off.

Following the final it took barely 48 hours for the brick-by-brick team at the Guardian to output this wonderful Lego recreation of the highlights of the match.

Granted I’m a bit slow off the mark (I’ve been out enjoying the sunshine!) but it’s still worth a watch and great attention to detail as ever.  Lego plus football, what’s not to like?

Robin Van Persie Flip Book

I’m aware this will make a hat trick of World Cup related posts, and I know some of you will want to escape the football, but it is a lovely creative take on recent events in Brazil.

If you haven’t been watching, Robin van Persie’s exquisite header against Spain is arguably the goal of the tournament so far (Tim Cahill’s thumping volley for the Socceroos is a real contender too!) and someone has painstakingly recreated it in a lovely sketch style flip book.

It even includes that very excitable high five with Netherlands boss Louis van Gaal!

Oh, and I’ve just tweeted a creative (Lego!) interpretation of Cahill’s goal here.
