Home made caves and hiding places

Call me crazy, but I am seriously thinking about making some caves and hiding spots out of legos. There is a ton of legos on ebay for sale. Has anyone tried this? If so does it work, and how did you do it?

I've seen a Lego themed tank before. I'm pretty sure there's some type of sealant for them and you should be fine.

I read it on here before I'm pretty sure. Anything plastic it's good to use. I think it'd be fine though as long as the Legos are clean

I'd worry a tiny bit about stuff leaking in and growing, and about them floating, so yeah - I'd boil them, let them dry fully, build, slather on some aquarium sealant, squeegee it off so it just stays in the cracks, then silicone it down so it won't float.

Yeah you would either need to seal or clean each individual lego every couple months. However, when you did that, you could build something new! But I'm the creative type...
