A five-year-old boy has seen his dream come true after having a life-size replica of himself made entirely out of lego.

Sunay Urs is a "lego fanatic" and spends two hours a day playing with the plastic building bricks.

His mother entered him in a competition giving him the chance to come face to face with his lego counterpart. It's 3ft tall and made out of 7400 individual pieces.

The lego figure took two professional LEGO builders eight weeks to make.

It was presented to the youngster at the intu Trafford Centre in Greater Manchester.

Sunay loves playing with his LEGO & creating endless new things from his imagination. He couldn’t believe it when I told him we’d won a competition for him to be turned into an actual LEGO character. He is thrilled with the finished item and now we need to decide where it’s going to live in our home!

The five-year-old hopes to one day become an official Master Builder, joining the world’s elite builders that have to be certified by Lego around the globe.
