It measures 2.3 metres tall, and is 4 metres wide, and is made up of 103,650 Lego bricks, according to Geek Culture.

“At the Lego Group, we continue to innovate new play themes and experiences for children and adults alike,” said Cesar Ridruejo, General Manager, Southeast Asia at the Lego Group.

“The opening of Southeast Asia’s largest Lego Certified Store here in Singapore epitomises this with new features such as the first ever Lego Mosaic Maker in Southeast Asia and the prominent inclusion of adult fan creations that demonstrate the endless possibilities one can imagine and create with Lego bricks. Families and fans are welcome to join us in this journey of creative play on the Sentosa island, synonymous to the state of fun,” continued Ridruejo.
