LEGO Architecture is one step ahead of Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG): the company has released a replica of the not-yet-built LEGO museum designed by Ingels' firm. The museum is set to go up in LEGO's hometown of Billund, Denmark, but not until 2016. 

Ingels' work isn't the sole focus of this replica—it appears that the box set actually comes with a figurine of the man himself, the Architect's Newspaper reports on its blog. One of these limited edition LEGO replicas sold on eBay on April 10 for $109.00.

The real LEGO Museum will commemorate the history of LEGO, but until it's ready for real-life visitors, check out a video rendering of the museum below.
