Angus MacLane is an animator with Pixar.

He also happens to be the Michelangelo of Lego.

Among the many Danish-construction-toy-based wonders on his Flickr page are 313 examples of what MacLane calls ‘Cube Dudes’: caricatures of pop-culture icons that use this colourful but clunky medium to fairly astonishing effect.

Above (from top): Conan O’Brien, Marvin Nash from Reservoir Dogs, Captain Picard, Woody, Napoleon Dynamite and Mythbusters‘ Jamie Hyneman.
