Because most of us were asleep at 2.15am AEST when Felix Baumgartner made his record-breaking skydive, here's a re-creation — in Lego!

Created by the Vienna ModelMaker Fair — which is due to take place on 25-28 October — this short video is a tribute to the Red Bull Stratos jump, where Felix Baumgartner dove from 39 kilometres above the Earth.

It's a bit less scary (and expensive!) than the actual jump, but a heck of a lot cuter, with minifigs milling about while the little Lego Baumgartner makes his death-defying leap.

I made a parody of today's big event, but it's not very cute:

Fair to say some people have WAY too much time on their hands...
