Build This Lego Leica M9-P Hermes and Save Yourself $49,962

Lego master builder Chris McVeigh has cooked up a playful alternative to Leica's obscenely and pointlessly expensive $50,000 M9-P ‘Edition Herm├Ęs'. The Lego version doesn't actually take photos, but you'll also pay only $38 for a kit if you can't scrounge all the parts needed to assemble it.

Or, if your Lego stocks already have every piece you need, you can save yourself even more money by just downloading the PDF build instructions McVeigh has kindly provided on his site. Oh and if you don't like the Hermes Edition, you can always build the standard model by just switching up your color palette. More here.

I'd never heard about this camera before, that's such a ridiculous price for a camera, really can't believe that. The Lego idea is an awesome alternative, I might have to buy a kit!
