Japanese Guy Creates Amazing 'Pop-Up LEGO', Blows Minds

Japanese LEGO builder Talapz specialises in two things: recreating famous Japanese structures in LEGO, and turning those brick recreations into pop-up books.

It’s as if Talapz didn’t think building was hard enough. He had to make things trickier.

Above, Talapz does a Todai-ji in LEGO — he even provides a how-to at the end, so get out a pen and paper if you want to build this yourself.

Back in 2009, Talapz got loads of internet fame after making a Kinkaku-ji LEGO pop-up. In the above gallery, you can see that video, which has been viewed over a million times.
