Here's me built out of 7,400 Lego bricks.

IT'S the ultimate prize for any Lego fan - a replica of yourself made from thousands of bricks.

And that's exactly what five-year-old Sunay Urs has been able to take home after winning a competition.

The statue of the youngster stands at 3ft tall and has been made from a whopping 7,400 pieces of Lego.

Sunay, from Cheadle, Stockport, won the competition with intu Trafford Centre, launched to fulfil the most impossible gift requests.

It took two professional Lego builders eight weeks to make and was presented to the youngster at the shopping mall after his mum, Dilek, entered the contest.

Lego superfan Sunay spends two hours before and after school building Lego and hopes to one day become an official master builder. Dilek said: "Sunay loves playing with his Lego and creating endless new things from his imagination. He couldn't believe it when I told him we'd won a competition for him to be turned into an actual Lego character. He is thrilled with the finished item and now we need to decide where it's going to live in our home."
