It’s no secret that we all had to wait a long time for the new Tool album, Fear Inoculum. But do you know what could have helped to pass the time during those 13 years? If we had a LEGO set of the band to play.
Through LEGO Ideas, an initiative to “share your great creations and creativity, participate in prize contests, display your proposals for new LEGO Ideas sets and vote for amazing models dreamed by your fellow designers,” a very creative fan has risen a tone for a LEGO Tool set, with a customized stage featuring Danny Carey, Adam Jones, Maynard James Keenan and Justin Chancellor. There is incredible attention to detail when it comes to Danny’s battery in particular.
