It's quite possible that there is nothing in the world that LEGO can't do a version of; the new LEGO 2012 Olympic Minifigures are a perfect example of how the popular building blocks are always one step ahead of the latest craze.
Indiana Jones, Star Wars and Harry Potter all have undergone LEGO makeovers in the past decade. LEGO has come a long way since its debut in the late 1940s, making it one of the longest-standing toys in history.
Crazes come and go, and what's in one month may quickly be out the next, but LEGO adapts to evolving tastes and fads by incorporating them into themes for the plastic blocks. The LEGO 2012 Olympic set will only be available in a variety of minifigures, but architecturally talented kids will easily be able to construct their own stadium to house the LEGO Olympics.
