is it possible to take apart a giant LEGO man

In a competetion we won a giant Emmet. Unfortunately all the bricks are fixated. Does anyone know if it is possible to make them loose?
thanks!

    Are you just wanting the parts to play with or use for another project? If so sell him and use the cash to buy new parts. Pics would be great to see.

    It would be foolish to take apart, sell it and buy something else. Pictures would be nice.

    but imagine how great it would be to be creative with all the 17 680 bricks :smile:

    Sounds like they're (ironically) glued. Even if you got them loose they wouldn't be very usable.

    Most likely glued. I've seen a few of those (not necessarily Emmet) made and they are always glued. Quite ironic indeed.

    I'd be interested in purchasing it if you're looking to get rid of it.

    Where are you located? I could be interested as well.

    Who was running the competition you won it in? Normally those figures are on loan from LEGO and have a plaque on the back saying so.

    Assuming this is glued you've next to no chance of getting the pieces apart - they're probably literally melted together and all you'll do is break them.

    As others have said, your best bet is to sell Emmet to a collector/someone who'll use him for displays and use the cash to buy LEGO which hasn't been Kragled....

    Whoever built that model could have gone a brick or 2 thinner on the hair as well. Looks like he's sporting an afro.

    Lol, Afro Emmet. That will be in The LEGO Movie 2.

    Surely if you enter a competition to win a giant Emmet it is because you want a giant Emmet?

    It you want a massive pile of orange, yellow and brown bricks find a competition where that is the prize.

    ^ Maybe the prize wasn't known before hand.

    It was a competition in a Belgian toy-store. Last year it was a Lego-Chima figure. I just filled out the form without thinking we would actually win this. It is attached to a large round plate, on the bottom it says that it is made by Lego in september '14. We just thought it would be fun to be able to use it. But that won't be possible apparently. So for now he will just stand in our entrance.
    thank you everyone for your advice!
