Can the fusilli Michael Jackson be far behind? Our travel blog reports:

Michael Jackson, who won 13 Grammy Awards, sold more than 750 million records and was inducted into Cleveland’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, will soon be immortalized in plastic as a Lego figure at Legoland California.

The 4-inch-tall Jacko Lego — complete with a single white glove and red leather jacket — will be added to the Southern California section of Miniland, a panoramic tableau rendered completely in Legos. Starting Thursday, the mini-MJ can be seen at Legoland exiting a limousine in front of Hollywood’s Grauman’s Chinese Theatre amid paparazzi and fans under a marquee that reads “Thriller.”
