Japan in 1.8 Million Bricks Aug 21st

This recreation of Japan in a mere 1,800,800 Lego bricks is pretty impressive. With 5000 builders, that's only 360 bricks each. With a relative scale, most of these buildings would be in space.

Reminds me (in scale, if nothing else) of the Lego house from the BBC's Toy Story series.
