LEGO – Imagine by Jung von Matt
Although not entirely original here are a few awesome Lego builds from Jung von Matt. You might be surprised how many of these references to TV shows, movies, bands and other pop-culture touchstones you’ll be able to identify given only minimalist clues.

So, how many did you get?
Like I said Jung Von Matt’s bar-coded representation of these characters has been done before. Here are a few of those created in 2010 with pixel art by ‘crumpuppet’:
