We’ve always had a soft spot in hearts for boxy cars and trucks. That goes for blocky trucks, too, if this sweet-looking build is any indication.
You’re looking at a life-sized replica of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss realized entirely in Lego blocks. Chevy launched the project as a tie-in with The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, out February 8, in which the Lego Silverado has a cameo.
Chevy says it worked with the FIRST Lego League team at Oxford Community School and with students at Ralph Waldo Emerson Elementary in Detroit to build the block truck. Here’s a time-lapse of the project:
If you guessed 334,544 in the “how many Legos did it take contest,” then congratulations are in order. The red 2 x 8 stud brick was the most commonly used piece on the truck, which weighs more than 3,300 lbs. (If you’re curious, the curb weight of a real 2019 2WD Chevy Silverado is 4,474 lbs.)
