The model took four people two months to complete. It sits in the Westfield shopping mall near the official London Olympics [1] store and draws crowds that are sometimes four people deep. The minifigures used in the design include 9 figures made to represent the Great Britain Olympic team. These figures are available for purchase exclusively in the UK market and include a boxer, swimmer and tennis player, among others.

Bright Bricks [2] is known for their extravagant and huge LEGO designs, like the world’s first LEGO jet engine [3] for Rolls-Royce and a 40-foot tall Christmas tree [4] in the middle of St. Pancras Station.

The model is an incredibly detailed replica of the Olympic [5] stadium and it includes details of both the interior and exterior, featuring a running track, javelin field and awards podium.
