Post J.K. Rowling immortalized in Lego as the ultimate hero (UPDATED)

As a reward for topping a poll voted on by children, who had to choose their ultimate hero, a large-scale lego-set model of J.K. Rowling's face was constructed at Legoland Windsor in the UK. Photos of the model can be seen here:





The head of Legoland said this of Jo's honour:

Quote:
“Her books have been a great inspiration to children of all ages.

“We actively encourage imagination and creativity and believe in making the children the heroes – just as Rowling does in her stories.”
UPDATE: According to the The Telegraph, Dan Radcliffe came in at 8th place with 2% of the vote and David Tennant (Barty Jr) came 9th with 1% of the vote. Jo won with 37.4% of the vote.

That is so funny. I mean, it's a great honor and certainly a great chance to be immortalized, but legos? Wow. Good job by Jo and all the voters.

I know you deleted the comment but still;

Quote:
I would vote her into that role if she were, I don't know... using her bajillions to help the sick and impoverished children of the world, or something. Not that she doesn't do some charity, I'll grant. But ...It just bothers me that she's held up as a near-saint when she's got so much and it seems she doesn't do much with it to help those less fortunate... like she's forgotten her roots. Not that she is under any obligation to do so, mind you-- she is an author and not a political activist or humanitarian, after all. But before she is slapped with labels like "Ultimate Hero", I'd just like to see her earning that title in the huge, impactful ways that being the richest woman in the world AND the highest profile author of all time affords her the opportunity to do.
You clearly have NO idea the amount of charity work she does. Up until recently she was the patron for MS Scotland (she left because of inner disagreements with how the charity is being nationalised) and has set up The Children's High Level Group. Her total donations to charity come to £80 million. Jo has also helped; Book Aid International, the Catie Hoch Foundation, One Parent Families, Comic Relief, Dyslexia Action, the Raisa Gorbachev Foundation, the XP Support Group, Comic Relief and more besides. A quick Google that takes mere seconds can tell you all of this and more.

You may not agree with her being given such a title but the accusation that she doesn't do enough with her good fortune and position, just isn't true.

Makes sense, since that's what the park is about XD
