At first glance, this LEGO tableau may not look that impressive, considering that it doesn't fire rubber bands or feature a motorized chainsaw. Don't be fooled by its apparent simplicity, however. If you've ever tried building your own constructions from scratch, you'll appreciate some of the clever techniques that creator Bruce Lowell used to make this scene from Pac-Man.

If you like this model, be sure to check out the rest of Bruce's Flikr photostream. It's filled with some stunning creations, including a huge LEGO rendition of Saruman's Orthanc tower he created with some other builders.

In case you haven't figured it out yet, this weekend's theme is "How to feel inadequate about your LEGO-building abilities." You're welcome.
