A giant Lego like man washed ashore in Siesta Key Village, Florida, yesterday. The eight foot tall figure displayed a message on his chest that read “No more real than you are”.
This Lego man seems to be part of the same group of Lego men that have washed up on shores in the past. Other locations have included Holland and England.
“My name is Ego Leonard and according to you I come from the virtual world,” reads a message on his site. “A world that for me represents happiness, solidarity, all green and blossoming, with no rules or limitations.
“Lately however, my world has been flooded with fortune-hunters and people drunk with power. And many new encounters in the virtual world have triggered my curiosity about your way of life.”
According to the Lego Company, this eight-foot-tall, one hundred pound fiberglass, Lego man is not one of their creations. Sources believe that the Lego man coincides with a website run by Ego Leonard.
Although newspapers have contacted him, he acts as if he is the Lego man and not a man who launched the toy into the ocean. Upon questioning, he stated that he was warm and happy in Florida. The Lego Man is currently residing in the local police station. Who knows where the next Lego Man will surface.
