We're obsessed with scale-model toy cars in general and Lego toy vehicles in particular. Our print associate editor even made his own Lego hot rod. We're forever fascinated with the amount of creativity that goes into putting together these miniature replicas. Use Lego bricks to assemble a sports car and you have our attention.
This guy named Jergens Correa certainly has our undivided attention now. You see, he sent us these photos of his Lego models of Philippine urban settings back in February, and we saw them just now. This means these images have been sitting in our mailbox for months! (Apologies for that; we do get tons of messages on a daily basis.)
Anyway, what Jergens did is unique: He rendered familiar elements of typical Metro Manila scenery as Lego scale models, including our enduring jeepney and tricycle. But the most interesting features of these Lego models are the common Philippine stores, restaurants and even motels! Be sure to scroll down to the very last photo.
Enjoy these pictures. Hats off to the imaginative Lego builder.
