    Here is one grabbed from your link. Story says he is 6' tall; taller than Mark Hamill. :)

    There have been many of these made over the years.

    While they look good from a distance, they are normally relatively simple studs-up models, just using lots of bricks. Doing the details is pretty easy at that scale too, as the figures are so much larger than the brick size, so you get good resolution.

    Obviously the bigger the model, the better the resolution ...

    Just like mosaic generation, there is also software to generate the building plans, such as legolizer and brickify. I've never done it on a life sized object before but both work quite well for smaller builds.

    And I managed to get a burger into a Mark Hamill thread!

    @CCC that's an interesting comparison with making the burger bigger and bigger. Never knew about legolizer.

    This is also interesting (shot at Kladno, fast forward over the first bit).
