The Merlion - Special gift for CEO of LEGO® Group Mr Jørgen Vig Knudstorp
About this creation
When we heard the CEO of LEGO® Group might be meeting our fan group, everyone was totally thrilled and excited!

We wanted to give him a surprise present to remember this trip to our sunny island and meeting our fan group.

A few ideas were discussed on what’s representative of Singapore. We decided finally we should create a Merlion sculpture. I am very fortunate to be given the opportunity to design it with the great support of everyone in the club.

This sculpture holds on it own without the need of glue. It was designed in different components (head piece, manes, tail fins, etc..) and would fit nicely with each other without falling apart. It was created using MLcad before purchasing the needed elements from Bricklink. Total time for designing, exploring possible sizes, experimenting different building techniques and piecing it together took about two weeks. The final model was glued and fixed inside a nice hand-made acrylic case before presented to Mr Jørgen.

For more details and pictures, please take a look at our S0937FG page here in MOCpages.

We sincerely hope Mr Jørgen Vig Knudstorp will like this present.

An icon of Singapore for an iconic figure in the world of LEGO®!


* It was a real experience and pleasure meeting Mr Jørgen. He is patient, humble, very friendly and humourous too. Personally, I feel he's a great thinker with good values and beliefs, not to mention a visionary too.

The evening we all shared was like a meeting of friends than a fan club meeting. All the best wishes to Mr Jørgen, his family and all the people working with LEGO® Group. It's fantastic to have a CEO (and boss too i'm sure for people working with him!) like him that truly cares!

Cheers!

Unfortunate thing is, most haven't the foggiest idea what this is supposed to be (soon to change I hope), but this is a fantastic custom of one of our landmarks. Looks just as good up close!
