Watch How A Life-Size Lego SUV Is Constructed [VIDEO]

Watch as a team constructs a life-size SUV all from legos. It was Created to mark the launch of Ford’s latest Explorer SUV (and the upcoming opening of the world’s largest Lego theme park), the model was constructed by a Connecticut-based team of 22 master builders, a task which took some 2,500 hours. In its finished state, it weighs over 2,600 pounds, more than half as much as the real car — although about a quarter of its mass is down to a huge aluminum base that strengthens and supports the structure.

In total, the Lego Explorer uses about 380,000 bricks — which, at a typical market rate of about ten cents per brick, would cost nearly $40,000. And yes, that’s indeed more than enough to buy you an actual, drivable new-model Explorer, with enough left over to spec out some nice options.

I can’t lie, I’d have love to see the team get all the way to the final piece, and someone trip and fall, thus destroying the model. Would it not have been hilarious to see a team member trip and fall on the model, and legos go everywhere? Ok, that is just me being a BIG kid hoping to see disaster. Any how, what a project, because I’d have never had that much patience to complete such a task.
