A former NASA physicist says Lego people will outnumber humans by 2019. If that's true, at least they'll have a place to live and work.

The record-setting, 114-foot-tall tower stands in a Budapest, Hungary, square.

The colorful structure was built at a Legos store and is topped with a Rubik’s cube.

CNN reports the Guinness Book of World Records calls the building " the tallest structure built with interlocking plastic bricks."
