Can't get Johnny Depp to answer the invitation to come to your house? Do the next best thing – build him.

That's what LEGO master model builder Erik Varszegi did for Tuesday's preview event leading up to the American International Toy Fair in Manhattan. And it only took some 200 hours and more than 150,000 LEGO bricks.

But look what he got for it: a 6-ft.-tall version of PEOPLE's twice-named Sexiest Man Alive as Captain Jack Sparrow. In the flesh next to LEGO Depp is costar Ian McShane, who plays Blackbeard in Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, due in theaters this May.
