The Lego brick celebrated its sixtieth anniversary over the weekend. To celebrate, Lego prepare an incredible, 10-foot-tall, 133,000-piece model of the iconic construction block, which the company filmed in a shockingly gratifying time-lapse video.
Lego says it took 350 hours for its “Grasp Developers” to construct, which is beautiful impressive taking into account the size and scale of the construct. For reference, the most important Lego set available to shoppers is the 7,541-piece Millennium Falcon that used to be launched overdue last year. (It costs $800.) Scaling that up might make the giant brick roughly $14,109 worth of Lego. (That’s assuming the corporate ever bought it as a collection, which seems extremely unlikely.)
Observing the video is also a fascinating strategy to get an concept of the way Lego builds those tremendous huge units. Glance closely and you can see an inside scaffolding made up of bigger, sturdier Duplo bricks. they are designed for younger youngsters, however they can be integrated seamlessly with the smaller, conventional Lego bricks.
