Lego St. Pancras Station in London: Tracks

The Lego Movie has been killing it at the box office. With so much Lego love going around, we thought we'd cast a spotlight on a man who makes a living playing with the beloved building blocks.

Warren Elsmore, based in Edinburgh, Scotland, has spent most of his adult life as an IT consultant, building Lego toys and trains on the side. Then he began to think bigger. He built a large-scale replica of Edinburgh's Forth Bridge (20,000 Lego pieces and a year of his life). Next, he tackled London's St. Pancras train station (160,000 Lego pieces and two years of his life). Around this time, the Lego company took note and asked Elsmore to build London's Olympic Village (an epic 250,000 Lego pieces). The rest is history. In 2012, he left his day job to work with Legos full-time.

Large projects aside, Elsmore is constantly inventing smaller-scale (and easily replicable) Lego designs of landmarks and tourist attractions all over the world, from the Arc de Triomphe and Trevi Fountain in Europe to the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. and Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City. Below are 25 of his most charming, impressive creations. For more information about Elsmore, visit his website.
