Lego Space Invader

12 December 2010

Lego Space InvaderBilly made this Lego Space Invader tile. I think it's pretty cool, and it got me thinking.What if I replaced the tiles in the bathroom with Lego baseplates?

The opportunities are endless, and we certainly have enough Lego to do it.Genius or lunacy? I'm still undecided.
