Fundraising boy wonder immortalised in Lego

I'm not sure if this is related to the competition in Chat magazine mentioned here a few months ago (can't find the thread now) but a 10-year-old boy from Lincolnshire who has raised thousands of pounds for charity has won a competition to be immortalised in Lego, with the model of him on display at LLW until end of September, when he gets to keep it!
Well done Jack!

    Will it be replaced by a hairy fairy?

    Congratulations to him and a thank you to Lego for doing that, very nice of them. I don't want to sound negative, but I do wonder if the model would have looked more real had Lego used "fleshie" colored bricks for his skin. Ooh, and I just noticed his aunt wants to keep it in the garden. That will fade badly over time, let him keep it in his room.

    Great story, thanks for posting it @LIT. I think we may have seen it upstairs in storage at LLW a couple of weeks ago.

    Out in the garden? Deserves to be indoors in a dark room (I mean that in the best way)
