Lego maniacs, rejoice!

School kids in Hungary have just smashed the world record for the tallest Lego tower, crafting a 114-foot-tall pillar in Budapest using hundreds of thousands of the interlocking plastic bricks.

 

Guinness World Records verified the feat after its completion on Sunday.

The multi-colored tower sits in front of Budpest's St. Stephen's Basilica.

It features a profile of Pac-Man on the side.

 

And is even topped by a Rubik's cube, a Hungarian invention.

 

City workers helped install the creation over a five-day period.

 
 

 

 

 

 
 
 

 

 
 

The previous record holder was this 34.4-meter structure built last year with the help of school kids in Delaware.

Here's video of the Hungarian feat.
