Lego Paradise

It had to happen eventually.  With the world gone Lego crazy it was only a matter of time before attentions were turned to the world’s great football stadia.

This is an impressive re-modelling of the grand old stadium on a tiny scale that James Forrest/Brian McLaughlin/Patsy Gallacher*  would still fit into quite comfortably.  No detail has been spared in the recreation of the modern Celtic Park – the eagle-eyed among you might even identify your own seat in Paradise.

As it is on sale for the princely sum of £299, most would struggle to afford the real thing and have to make do playing with the model and imagining the game being played out on the verdant turf while simultaneously listening to the Radio Shortbread broadcast.

This guy liked the original Lego model so much he went out and built a new stadium based on it, thankfully he didn’t forget about the roof at the construction stage

It is good to see that other Scottish teams haven’t been neglected, even the newest one.  On Twitter, @CelticChuck67 revealed that the latest bloomail campaign had forced Lego to bring out a limited edition Manchester 2008 version to recall oldco’s finest hour.  Lest we forget.
