    In England we would (and do) say "a box of Lego" and "a camera made of Lego".

    Another pluralisation I don't understand is where I might say "we have a long way to go", I sometimes see it written as ".....a ways to go". The a implies singular but ways is plural.

    Darn it!!! Wish I hadn't given away all those Lego brinks so many years ago - I could have made 3 of these babies easily with the amount I had (90% inherited!!)

    It comes from the other use of the word Lego to mean a single Lego brick, not just the name of the product in general. If you say "a Lego" to mean a brick, then what do you call multiple bricks? Three Lego? Sounds completely weird to me. So it must be a U.S. vs. British English thing.

    A Lego brick, some Lego, three Lego bricks.

    Try it with something else. e.g. A Sony television, some Sony televisions, three Sony televisions.

    I think the difference is that we do not call a single piece a Lego in the same way that we would not refer to a television as just a Sony.

    All US vs. British English things are weird!

    Waaaay cool! I also loved the fact that it turned out to be more advanced than I initially thought. I first assumed, when seeing the first image, that it would be a fixed focus thing, but instead, it has a focussing option and ground glass too... great!

    This is a truly epic use of Lego(s). I am tempted to go buy some and build a pinhole camera. Leghole I guess it would be called.
