I’ve never liked the expression “They’ve got too much time on their hands.” It’s often said in a dismissive, snide way about people who have chosen to use their free time to, I don’t know, catalog every Doctor Who story in chronological order, or build extensive detailed replicas of movie props that only appear on screen for a few seconds. It is, at its core, a term that is used to shoot down creative endeavors.
The fact is, we all have the exact same amount of time during our day. We just prioritize different things. Some people collate spreadsheets and walk their dog. Others build customized LEGO versions of each and every Iron Man suit Tony Stark has ever worn.
That’s what LEGO enthusiast Minh Pham has done – he’s built a LEGO laboratory space worthy of Mr. Stark and populated it with insanely detailed variations on the Iron Man suit as they’ve appeared throughout the films, comic books and various TV outings—all custom-made from LEGO minifigs.
It’s an impressive feat, and a superlative use of Pham’s time. Check out more photos below.
