This Dude Built a Huge Sinking Titanic out of 120,000 LEGOs

Sure, you can walk into pretty much any LEGO retail store and check out huge buildings and other structures made with thousands upon thousands of pieces. But if you really want to see the true potential of those little, colorful, and expensive-ass bricks, then look no further than this enormous model of the Titanic, tragically sinking into the sea. As seen in the pictures below, it's freaking spectacular.

Built by LEGO wizard Ryan McNaught of thebrickman.com, the model is composed of approximately 120,000 LEGO bricks and took more than 250 hours to construct over the course of December 19, 2015 to January 12, 2016. For perspective, the stunning structure stands several feet tall and the ship alone appears to be well over a foot wide. Don't believe us? Here's the proof:

But most of all -- and just like the giant LEGO models of the Millennium Falcon and an AT-AT from Star Wars -- this thing looks like it'd be insanely fun to play with. That is, if anyone's even allowed to touch it at all.
