Hand-Carved Wooden Reproductions of Lego Figures


It seems to be a weekend for nostalgia, because as well as the ’70s space colony illustrations we featured earlier today, our other favorite internet discovery has been these wonderful hand-carved wooden Lego figures. They’re made by French designer Thibaut Malet, who was selling them through his Etsy store. Sadly, the figures are sold out — Malet only made 20 of them, and we imagine they went like the proverbial shot — but they’re still worth admiring via these pictures, which we spotted via PSFK. (Both designer and website get an extra gold star for not using the dreaded “Legos” plural, too.) And if they do go back on sale, you know what to put under the Christmas tree for us, eh?
