Dude Makes Pop-Up Castle Out Of LEGO

Yes, LEGO! Japanese YouTuber Talapz wasn’t content with merely recreating Himeji Castle’s main keep, so he decided to make a pop-up version of it.


The whole thing weighs 12.5kg (27.8 pounds) and took fifteen months to finish. According to Talapz, no glue was used in constructing the project.

This isn’t a first for him. As Kotaku previously reported, he did a pop-up LEGO version of the Kyoto Buddhist temple Kinkaku-ji.
