If you thought a star on Hollywood Boulevard or being on the cover of Vogue was a sign of celebrity status, think again. The new benchmark is whether you’ve been recreated in Lego yet.

Whoever came up with this was either a genius or had too much time on their hands. Or both. Fact is, there are loads out there and even our list of 30 Lego celebs is not exhaustive, just a best-of, grouped by the field or occupation they’re famous for. Unfortunately, none of these Lego celebs are for sale. Too bad. Would have made a cool collection and made for some strange encounters. Imagine George Bush meeting the Great Houdini on your shelf?
