Marine Corps Captain Exterminates Lego World Record With Extreme Prejudice

Captain Kyle Ugone isn't just a US Navy bruiser — he's a man of finesse and a lover of small plastic bricks. So much so that he's erected a staggering 1091 Lego sets, earning him the title of world champion.

According to American Forces Press Service, "Rooms in his Yuma home look as if they belong in a Lego Land theme park, containing hundreds of completed Lego sets separated by genre, such as space, trains, castles and Star Wars sets, displayed on tables and shelves."

You wouldn't think he'd have the time to do all of this while also being a Marine Corps Captain, but hey, the best and the brightest! Now what's he going to do? Destroy it all. His post-record move is extremely zen: "Ugone is slowly taking the sets apart for storage to regain some of the square footage in his home. He's taking a break from collecting Lego sets, planning instead to focus more of his attention on restoring a classic muscle car." Dust to dust. [DoD]
