In my adventures in the Capital Region over the weekend I happened upon the Toys 'R Us on Wolf Road in Colonie. While looking for something my niece or nephew might enjoy, I came across one of the coolest Lego collections I've ever seen.

Bare in mind I've never been to Lego Land but walking up to this Star Wars Lego was amazing. As you can see from the pictures below, building Captain Rex took 165 hours using 24,586 Legos.

I asked one of the employees of the store about it and they said that Lego has a team that strictly builds models like this. They are then sent around for display much like Rex is now at the Colonie store. Not sure how long he is going to be there but if you are a kid at heart, get there soon to see it.
