Founded in 1932 by Ole Kirk Kristiansen, the Lego company has been around for 82 years. Although many toys fall out of favor over time, Lego has grown in popularity and is now the world’s third-largest manufacturer of toys.

Much of the company's success comes from a motto that has hung on the walls of Lego factory since 1936: “Only the best is good enough.”

After many years of operation, what started out at a small carpenter's workshop has now pumped out hundreds of building sets, video games and, most recently, a movie created by Warner Brothers titled, "The LEGO Movie," released on Feb. 7, 2014.

The Lego brick, which has maintained the same design since 1958, has also inspired fans around the world to build their own creations.

From an amputee's Lego leg to a life-size Lego house — complete with running water — here are 26 interesting Lego iterations.

Those were impressive, but I have to say that some of them were so spectacular that they kind of made the other entries seems uninteresting by comparison.

I'm probably most interested in the Temple construction. It seems like something -I- could do if I had enough white bricks, unlike those jaw-dropping spectacular super-projects like the X-Wing or the Beijing Games scene.
