A little meme-tastic LEGO tribute to Russian singer Eduard Khil (1934-2012), who passed away last week.

Unless you have been living on Mars the past few years, you'll have seen the now famous YouTube video that earned Mr Khil the Internet title of "Trololo Guy", due to his non-vocalized performance of "Я очень рад, ведь я, наконец, возвращаюсь домой" ("I Am Glad, 'Cause I'm Finally Returning Back Home") by Arkady Ostrovsky.

The original version can be found here. Although I heartily recommend you also take a look at this hilarious version, which is one of my all-time favorite YouTube videos. It just cracks me up every time I watch it!

На здоровье, Господин Хиль!

    I'm not completely sure how that forearm is being held on, but that makes it even better!

    I am still wondering how that title makes any sense at all (The song title).

    Hey Ian, just wanted to let you know that this made it to the front page of Reddit!

    Trolol! Is he roughly the same scale as Freddy Mercury? They'd make an awesome duet :-D

    ^ he's roughly the same size, but the head is off-scale by a factor of two (this was a quick build, not following my strict 12" pattern). I decided to go more cartoony with this one. For BrickCon, I'm hoping to add a long stream of floating 'trololololo's" streaming from his mouth and spiralling all around him!
