Mike Stimpson, a British photographer decided to reproduce famous journalism photos with Lego figurines. It is a beautiful project, but I have to wonder if it's not too much to recreate a dramatic moment with kids toys. Still, it remains an unique idea!

Implications - This innovative idea is one of many that pulls inspiration from a combination of kid's play and pop culture. This killer combination effectively demands attention because it takes two mismatched, yet familiar pieces, creating something fantastical that consumers can relate to. Designers or ad agencies that incorporate this mix of adult innovations and child's playthings will receive positive feedback from consumers seeking some nostalgia.
