Peter Sagan but made from 700,000 pieces of Lego

A 1:1 replica of the three-time World Champion made from 700,000 Lego pieces

There is a 1:1 scale of Marvel's Captain America, mosaic of Barack Obama and a replica of the scene depicting the fall of the Berlin Wall 30 years ago. There is also an 11 metre long, 3 metre high, 1:25 exact replica of the Titanic.

But, by far the most impressive piece at the Exhibition of Models Built with Lego Parts is the life-size model of Peter Sagan.

The replica figurine is a complete 1:1 scale of the double Monument winner wearing the 'rainbow t-shirt, honouring the title of the World Champion', despite Sagan having not worn the rainbow jersey since 2018.

To recreate the Slovakian's enormous calves, full beard and 5ft 11in frame, the creators had to use 700,000 Lego pieces in what is a very realistic-looking model.

Lego Sagan, the Titanic and tennis star Martina Navratilova are all part of the Exposicion de Modelos Construidos con Piezas Lego at Port of Malaga in Madrid city centre, basically a bitesize, temporary version of Legoland in Windsor.

It's not the first time that a cyclist has been immortalised in the popular Danish bricks. Back in 2015, Lego recreated the 2015 Tour de France-winning Team Sky including figurines of Chris Froome, team manager Dave Brailsford and even the team's 'death star' team bus.

That particular collection was never on sale, or available to one lucky winner, however the Sagan model could technically be yours as it only uses your regular Lego classic pieces.

Yet, be warned, if you fancy making your own version of lifesize Lego Sagan it will come at a cost with 700,000 classic Lego pieces likely to set you back a cool £11,670.
