The Year of 2012 in LEGO

Every year, and 2012 is no different, looks much better when it is presented by LEGO recreations of people skydiving from space or Russian punk rockers getting jailed for speaking their mind.

Felix Baumgartner

Skydiving from space? Why not. Baumgartner set a world record by jumping from 24 miles above the Earth, reaching an estimated speed of 834 miles per hour.

Clint Eastwood

Clint Eastwood revealed to the world, or anyone watching and following the Republic National Convention, that he might be starting to lose it in more than just his film-making abilities.

Gay Marriage

Voters approved gay marriage this year in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington.

Hurricane Sandy

More proof that mother nature is stronger than anything, even too big for the “greatest city in the world.”

Mars Rover

Life on Mars is not going to happen in our lifetime probably, but we’re learning more and more about John Carter’s planet.


The NRA responded to the Connecticut murders by offering to send more people with more guns to stand outside the schools.

Joe Paterno

Instead of ending his career at the time he chose to, a former living legend had to end his endless career as head coach of Penn State in shame, with his statue on campus being removed as well.

Pussy Riot

Another chapter in the story of how Russia remains a dark dictatorship in the disguise of Democracy, with anyone speaking against Putin soon silenced.

Weed Legalized

Colorado and Washington legalized weed, and you can expect some sort of population boom in these states in the very near future.
