LEGO Great Wall of China

In 2006, a Hong Kong TV crew filmed a documentary called 至爱品牌 乐高 ("Lovemarks: LEGO") about the passionate followings of LEGO. Sean flew out and built a sculpture of the Great Wall of China using thousands of LEGO bricks, and was interviewed for the documentary. Fellow brick artist Nathan also came out to help; together, they were filmed building the Great Wall LEGO model over the course of about 90 minutes.

Highlights (about 2 minutes)



Sean was interviewed shortly about his passion for LEGO toys. The final documentary aired September 30, 2006 in Mandarin Chinese on Fuji TV (51/Horizons) in Hong Kong. 至爱品牌 乐高 , 长城 , 中国

Sean visited the real Great Wall in Badaling, China, (near Beijing) prior to building the model.
