We’re This Close To An Official Lego “Golden Girls”


Why there isn’t already a Lego version of America’s favorite geriatric gal pals is beyond me, but luckily Sam Hatmaker isn’t asleep behind the wheel. The intrepid New Yorker built a scale model of the iconic set from The Golden Girls and has submitted it for official Legos consideration:

It has been meticulously recreated to have opening cupboards and fridge in the kitchen, Wicker Sofa and Chairs, a hallway backdrop, a storage closet in the kitchen, and an outdoor area with potted plants and a hose.

The only thing missing are a pair of Lego culottes for Dorothy and, naturally, the lanai. Where are they going to have their mojitos and play naughty bachelorette games every time one of them gets engaged? — which, as true fans of the show know, is pretty often.

Below, check out some classic GG scenes rendered in Lego by this hero among heroes and vote, dammit. Vote, vote, vote!:
