Yesterday, Chuck Cooperstein, the legendary radio play-by-play man for the Mavericks, posted a photo of an updated LEGO-ized Dirk Nowitzki statue at the LEGOLAND Discovery Center in the suburbs of Dallas-Fort Worth.

Using some 40,000 LEGO blocks, it took master LEGO artisan Cal Walsh about 20 hours to put together. Apparently, LEGO Dirk is steel-rod reinforced and is outfitted in a royal blue Mavericks’ uniform that was rigged with a zipper to make it easy to get on and off the figure without having to take arms and/or legs apart.

Of course, Dirk wasn’t the only Mavs player to be immortalized in colorful interlocking plastic bricks.

Tiny teammate J.J. Barea also got the LEGO-ized treatment, though his statue didn’t take quite so long.
