Lego Man in Papers
Head-scratching in Florida over Lego Man
A huge Lego sculpture that mysteriously appeared last week on a Florida beach will remain in police custody for 90 days while investigators try to figure out its owner.
The more than 2.4m-tall Lego Man weighing about 45kg turned up on the sands of Siesta Key beach off Florida's gulf coast last Tuesday, but no one has claimed responsibility for putting it there.
A swimmer first reported the green, yellow and red sculpture which says " No Real Than You Are" on the front, and "Ego Leonard" on the back.
The Danish manufacturer of the widly popular brick-building toys - which opened the world's largest Legoland in Orlando, Florida earlier this month - has denied any involvement.
In January, grand piano appeared mysteriously on a tiny sandbar in Miami's Biscayne Bay, and weeks later, a 16-year old boy owned up.
He had moved the piano onto the beach with the help of his father in a bid to make a video to help him get into a Manhattan art school.
if it isn't produced by Lego company, this giant minifigure should be Made in China.
