Custom Lego figures pay tribute to Steve Jobs

A two-pack of custom Lego figures has made late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs into Elvis Presley.

Not appearance-wise, we mean. That would be super weird. But the new set, which comes courtesy of custom-Lego company FamousBrick, pays tribute to Jobs by showcasing both young and old versions of the tech legend.

Jobs isn’t the first giant that FamousBrick has rendered as little plastic people. The company also offers Lego versions of current Apple head Tim Cook, designer Jony Ive, and co-founder Steve Wozniak, along with Microsoft creator Bill Gates, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, and NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.

FamousBrick, which assembles its figures from pieces of existing sets, is based in Germany and ships worldwide for free. The tribute set includes one Jobs with a full head of glorious hair, one with his trademark “black turtleneck and jeans” look, a base showing his birth and death dates, and an info card. It’ll cost $29.80 in the U.S. with other currencies available.

We really like FamousBrick’s take on custom Lego figures. Why should superheroes and sci-fi characters have all of the fun? And we think these tech-centered ones would really go well with one of those Apple Watch stands people are building out of the super-fun blocks. After all, who better to handle the charging cable on your wearable than the people who designed and built it?
