For a couple of weeks, there will be an exhibition of London-inspired models made from Lego -- on display in the Orbit observation thingy in the Olympic Park.
They seem to be announcing it rather early, but later this year will be a chance to see an awful lot of plastic bricks on Brick Lane in East London.
There is a modern rule that any large engineering project has to involve Lego at some point, and Crossrail have finally complied with Regulation 17 subclause 13a of the Lego Engineering Act 2008.
And thus it was that Tube Geek met Lego Geek and they turned the geek up to 11 by combining their geekdom in the form of several tube maps made out of Lego bricks.
To mark the 150th anniversary of the London Underground, what could be more fitting that to recreate the famous Baker Street Station from Lego? Well, lots of things probably, but this blog post is about Lego.
