Robster the LEGO Rock Lobster returns

LEGO Rock Lobster Kansas City

The Librarian stumbled on this awesome find during a photo shoot at Crown Center.

Sure, it might look like an average display advertising the new Sea Life Aquarium, but look closer... closer... lower right... getting warmer...

BOOM!

It's the return of Robster the LEGO Rock Lobster.

Robster was my first-round creation at the LEGO Brickfactor competition back in January. More than 200 LEGO fans from five different states competed to be named the LEGO Master Builder for the new LEGO Land Discovery Center opening later this month.

After the competition, LEGO reps said they might be using some of the models for displays in Crown Center, but I never actually thought Robster would survive — especially considering the number of other amazing sea creatures that came out of the first round.

I am just going to go ahead and assume this is what a parent feels like when their kid grows up to be an astronaut or a doctor or a dinosaur.
