Lego Bus Stop at Regent Street, London

A bus stop made entirely out of Lego bricks was recently built at the Regent Street, London, outside of the Hamley's Toy Shop. The bus stop was made out of more than 100,000 Lego bricks and it is currently being used as a real, working stop, serving nine routes.

Look at this amazing build!
 


The sign just awesome!
