Talk about a Mini-Me. Emphasis on "mini."

Russell Crowe has gotten the Lego treatment for his role in Man of Steel, for which—as Superman's father, Jor-El—his likeliness has now forever been immortalized among the classic toy's line of figurines.

And the actor just couldn't suppress his inner child upon hearing the news.

The 49-year-old father of two took to Twitter to share his giddiness, tweeting a pic of his figurine—complete with its very own cape!—for all his followers to ooh and aah over.

"Who's your daddy?" the actor playfully captioned the pic, showing the Lego figure standing on the edge of a table. (He's got another ready to get giddy: Based on early reviews, Man of Steel seems to be a big hit with critics.)

Apparently, his new Lego doppelgänger also gives him some major cred with his sons: Charles, 9, and Tennyson, 6.

"I am a @lego mini figure. This gives me great joy," he tweeted. "You have to understand, Lego is my two boys favourite thing...I have entered the realm."

A Lego Crowe? Now that's just super.
