Felix Baumgartner stunned the world this past weekend when he broke three world records as he jumped from 128,00 feet above the earth —and now his achievement is available to watch again in Lego form.

Red Bull’s Stratos jump saw the Austrian daredevil become the first human to break the sound barrier without any mechanical aids. The live event got the Lego treatment to promote the upcoming ModelMaker Fair in Vienna.

The short stop-motion video features the jump preparation and ascent, and even a minifigure that takes the now famous dive. Of course, the Lego version doesn’t quite make the same 24-mile climb that Felix did, but hey, we're talking about plastic toys here.

Check it out:

The Vienna ModelMaker Fair is set to take place from October 25 through the 28.
