Three months after mysteriously washing up on shore, he is now a free… Lego Man.
The figure stands about eight feet tall, and has “NO REAL THAN YOU ARE” written on his chest. He weighs about 100 pounds and is made of fiberglass.
Sarasota deputies quietly released the figure on Thursday.
After going unclaimed for three months, Lego Man now belongs to Jeff Hindman, the man who originally found him floating in the waves of Siesta Key last October.
Lego Man is believed to have been the work of Dutch artist Leon Keer, and similar giant Lego figures have previously washed up on beaches in Great Britain and The Netherlands.
Keer was in the Bay area around the time of Lego Man’s appearance, where he attended the 2011 Sarasota Chalk Festival.
When asked about the figure washing up on the beach, Keer coyly declined credit, and insisted that Lego Man was simply the work of “a friend.”
