Olympic mascots get bricked


Olympic mascots for Rio, Vinicius and his Paralympic pal Tom, have been released as official LEGO sets for the games this summer. The duo, whilst having similarity in style with the popular Mixels range, are pretty decent incarnations. Each is 197 pieces in total and likely to be highly sought after, especially as they are likely only to be available in Brazil. Factiod alert –  Vinicius and Tom are named after two icons of Brazilian music (Vinicius de Moraes, Lyricist and Tom Jobim, singer/songwriter)
