The Decemberists vs. Devo
In the Lego Rock Star World, all rock stars look like disgraced Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich. Bob Dylan, for example, looks like Rod Blagojevich holding a rake. Johnny Cash looks like Rod Blagojevich holding a rake.
So one has to use one's imagination. Still, I'm struck by the resemblance between the Lego Decemberists and the real-life Devo. I love the fact that the Lego on the left is wearing a red flowerpot on his head. I love the fact that the real-life members of Devo are wearing red flowerpots on their heads. I also love the Colin Meloy lego, who actually looks like Colin Meloy. I blame this more on Colin Meloy than anything else, since Legos only have about three basic facial types.
