As we celebrate the Capitals' 40th anniversary, let's take a moment to...
A Real LegOvechkin
It was only a matter of time before someone made a custom Alex Ovechkin out of LEGO.
A couple years ago, this site commissioned an animated LegOvechkin, but you could only watch that on your computer. Later, we found a generic Capitals LEGO figure on eBay. But now, we have the one and only Alex Ovechkin, complete with his name on the back, and a C on the jersey.
This custom figure is selling for $29.95 on eBay, plus shipping (Update: The last two have sold quickly, but more may be listed). Unfortunately, it does not come with LEGO ice skates. No worries, though – you can pick up a pair of blades for a few bucks on eBay as well. And another couple bucks for a stick, and a couple hundred for a LEGO ice rink.
Here’s what the generic Capitals LEGO player looks like:
