That'll confuse the archaeologists if Bristol gets buried in a volcanic eruption tomorrow...

One assumes there was some kind of "collect all the minifigs" trail through the museum, though I didn't spot any others.

Searches in vain for the 'like' button for this comment, which is so much better than the similar joke I was groping towards...

Aw, cute!

But is it to scale;)

Who knows! Though I suspect we would have heard of the Giant Roman Coins of Bristol if it was.

Worth bringing Time Team back to investigate, just in case;)

One of the best things about the (very impressive) new Acropolis Museum in Athens was the lego model of the Acropolis, complete with assorted minifigs acting out scenes from the classical through to present day history of the site, with a handy key explaining what each scene represented (eg an Elton John concert, Elgin taking the marbles - of course!) In one corner we spotted a rather familiar figure in a horse-drawn cart filled with fireworks. Sure enough, the key read "Gandalf arrives at the Acropolis." :-D
