as a tribute to the pop icon model builders in california created a four-inch tall
minilander of michael jackson that can be seen by park guests as he exits a limousine in front
of grauman’s chinese theatre. the scene included photographers and random paparazzi
surrounding the limousine as minilander fans try to catch a glimpse of the pop icon.
while trying to capture the most recognizable version of jackson, the three model builders
who worked on the project have actually created five different versions which were being posted
to CNN.com allowing viewers to comment on which model is the most fitting.
the los angeles times reported that legoland california abruptly halted its plans to immortalize
the late michael jackson in a scene that was scheduled to be installed at the park today.
