Lego Announces Classic Mini Cooper Kit

New Lego Mini

I don’t know if you guys are into Legos or not, but you should be. Because they’re awesome. This latest kit from Lego’s Creator series of advanced models, however, might just be the most awesome Lego kit, because it’s a highly detailed, functional, 1000 pc., $99, slick-looking, classic/vintage MINI Cooper.

Faith in humanity: restored.

That’s all I’ve got for this new Lego MINI, but you can check out Lego’s official release, below, and let us know what cars you’d like to see Lego do up next in the comments section at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!
