Build Your Own Stephen Hawking: Unofficial Stephen Hawking LEGO Kit

If you’re a fan of physicist, cosmologist and author Stephen Hawking – and if you like LEGO – you are going to love this! Several years ago, a LEGO version of Stephen Hawking was spotted online. It was a fantastic build that looked incredibly lifelike. Fast forward to today, the unofficial LEGO kit to make that Stephen Hawking is now available.

The original creator of this build from back in 2007 (and the person who is offering the LEGO kit on Amazon) is The Living Brick, but the pictures below came from Travelin’ Librarian‘s flicker photostream. Stephen Hawking, who is now 71, has inspired an entire generation of geeks, and it seems many people want to recreate him in LEGO bricks.

The Stephen Hawking LEGO kit comes with instructions (see the picture below) so you’ll know how to put all those tiny pieces together. It sells for $40. If it’s unavailable when you click over to Amazon, you can always try to make this on your own if you’ve got the bricks. The step-by-step directions (to make Stephen Hawking and his wheelchair) are illustrated in a beautiful graphic here Eurobricks.

We often feature huge LEGO kits and builds with thousands of pieces, but it’s small yet instantly recognizable builds like this that are the most inspiring ones to me. It would be so much fun to build Stephen Hawking and then let him sit on my desk. It would be a constant reminder that the universe may not always be what it seems, and anything is truly possible in this complex world we live in. If you want to pick up this LEGO kit for yourself, you can click over to Amazon. I still can’t get over how much this looks just like him, or at least like our perception of him.

What a triple fail! You posted this right when the product sold out, used pictures of an incorrectly assembled version of the model, and then posted a link to unauthorized instructions based on an old unstable design that relies on rare bricks.

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming
having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

Hello! I could have sworn I’ve visited this website before but after going through a few of the articles I realized it’s new to me.
Anyways, I’m certainly pleased I discovered it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back often!
