Fx4: Plastic Politicians?

President Obama is only 4 inches tall in this rendering of Tuesday's Inauguration. In fact, the Chief Justice looks a like he's got just a smidge more height than the Prez, which clearly isn't the case in Real Life.

The Nerds (we use the word lovingly) at Legoland California crafted more than 1,000 plastic dignitaries for a display honoring the 56th Presidential Inauguration, which runs thru Memorial Day. The case could be made that all politicians are Plastics. Like Mean Girls, only w/o the "burn book."

Are legos related to puppets, if so I see the resemblance...

I love the Legos scene. The pieces all fit together in perfect harmony. :-)

I like the Lego exhibit! But, you're right, the heighths could be a bit better, however, I know I couldn't do that, so props to the constructors!

Obama said in his speech that they were going to remind people that all are created equal. Maybe the Lego Nerds were just taking their cue from him... although it looks as though they could have given the the president more legs to stand on.
