The only thing better that LEGO sushi is LEGO sushi served up on a working conveyer belt! Japanese LEGO enthusiast peisan built an entire sushi restaurant fully of minifig employees, customers, and lots of LEGO food on teeny-tiny plates. Even BB-8 is there riding the conveyer belt.
This awesome model is full of playful details, including all sorts of unexpected visitors and sushi-prep shenanigans behind the counter. Maybe we have to travel to Japan in order to have our sushi prepared with swords. Click here for lots of close-up photos and watch this video for a tour of the LEGO sushi shop in action:

Berlin, Germany-based artist Jan Vormann uses LEGO bricks to make colorful patches to repair holes in landmarks and other historical buildings. Vormann usually seeks out buildings damaged during wartime in effort to draw attention to their historical significance while also cheering up the urban landscape with his brightly colored “patchworks.”
