Man finishes LEGO Star Wars space ship from scratch after just two years.Man finishes LEGO Star Wars space ship from scratch after just two years.

David Bowie officially joins Rock Band lineup... in LEGO form.David Bowie officially joins Rock Band lineup... in LEGO form.

Bowie will also be joined by a LEGO version of Iggy Pop. I'm still not understanding the whole Rock Band / LEGO connection. Perhaps the union is meant to function as a metaphor to emphasize the building blocks of music. Or maybe it's just cross-marketing gone berserk.
