Hideo Kojima as a Lego figurine is now a thing you can look at

When you're famous and beloved like Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima, cool things happen to you every single day. Things that don't happen to regular people.

Yes, it's Hideo Kojima as a Lego figurine. It doesn't exist in the real world (yet), but in image form it will live forever. The image quality may deteriorate with excessive duplication, but the essence will remain.

You'll notice a few things about the figurine. First of all, it's hard to tell whether Lego Kojima is unhappy or just very cool (some people frown in order to appear cool). Secondly, he's lifting his left eyebrow. Why is he doing that? Is it possible that he's unimpressed by something?
