London’s LEGO Store Lets You Buy a LEGO Mosaic of Your Face

Well, it seems we’re going to be on the lookout for cheap airfare to the United Kingdom, since we now have yet another reason to visit London and their new LEGO store–where you can get a custom mosaic kit of your face.

The LEGO Mosaic Maker, as it’s appropriately called, functions as the coolest photo booth in existence by taking your picture, rendering it in a grayscale grid, sorting out which LEGO pieces are needed, and giving you the photo as an assembly guide. According to CNET’s video, the kit includes over 4500 pieces and only costs £99 (about $125.00 US).

Your first thought might be that the price tag seems a bit steep for a LEGO set, but consider the process you’d have to go through without this miracle machine. Not only would you be left to your own devices to translate a photo to a brick-friendly grid, you’d also be on the hook for nearly double the price if ordering the bricks piece by piece. The Pick-A-Brick portion of the LEGO website allows you to order specific pieces, and the 1×1 plate piece the kit appears to come with are priced at six cents each. So, assuming you had the time to figure out what your face translates to in a similar fashion, the 4502 1×1 plate bricks you’d need would cost you roughly $270.00 US. And that’s not even counting the base plate, packaging and handy dandy instructions you’d need.

Basically, what we’re saying is that it makes more sense to just come with us to London and get your custom LEGO portrait with us.
