A few years ago I got my wife little Lego mini-figs of the two of us. I constructed out of parts from various preexisting Lego parts and they look like us but more importantly look like little Lego people. Because that's the whole point. That's narcissistic enough but now an Etsy store called Funly3dFaces lets you make really creepy 3D printed mini-fig heads for people so vain that they have to have their mini-figs look as much like them as humanly possible. You simply send them a picture of you and then they scan it and create a full color mini-fig head that will fit on any Lego person body. The resulting creation is...disturbing. It's just wrong. It is an abomination that should be flushed down the toilet or fed to the cat. (Don't actually feed Legos to a cat, please).
It will never cease to amaze me how vain people are and how much money they are willing to spend to indulge that vanity. Apparently, $74 worth.
