Did you have Lego toys when you were a kid? I did. But I never built an 8 foot tall Lego man! Someone did, and he washed ashore in Florida just the other day. Due to his … shall we say … unorthodox entry the United States, he’s currently being held in Sarasota, Florida, police custody.

According to the Huffington Post, a giant, eight-foot-tall, 100-pound Lego man made of fiberglass has been found on the beach in Sarasota, Florida’s Siesta Key. The front of the Lego man’s “shirt” says: “NO REAL THAN YOU ARE” and the back reads “EGO LEONARD” and a number eight. Some locals thought the Lego man was part of a publicity stunt by the new Legoland theme park in nearby Winter Haven but a rep from the park issued a statement saying, “This activity is in no way sponsored or endorsed by The LEGO Group or Merlin Entertainments, who run LEGOLAND attractions. Hope you’ve given Mr. LEGO Imposter his one phone call and an attorney!” The Lego man is most likely the work of an artist who goes by the name Ego Leonard. His website reads, “My name is Ego Leonard and according to you I come from the virtual world. A world that for me represents happiness, solidarity, all green and blossoming, with no rules or limitations.”

Here’s some amateur video of Ego Leonard, the Lego Man.

Some people think he came from a passing UFO, click here for the CBS News story.
