Disney’s summer blockbuster, Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, starring one of our honorary Persians, Jake Gyllenhaal, is being very well received by cirtics.
And as if all the positive pre-release press surrounding the action-packed Jerry Bruckheimer movie that’s destined to turn into a franchise isn’t enough…Dastan, Tamina, and all the other characters have been transformed into LEGO pieces.
As children, many of experienced the satisfying yet almost-obssessive sensation one gets when putting LEGOs together, and pulling them–sometimes pulling really hard–apart: Given our fond memories of LEGO-baazi (playing with LEGOs), we can’t help but get a little excited about this new Persian set.
(So maybe not every little single LEGO piece is precisely authentic to Persian culture…but remember, it’s based on a movie, that’s based on a video game.)
We’d definitely add it to our collection.
How about you?
