For all the LEGO Geeks: VW LegoBus
Unveiled this week at a travel convention in Munich, the Volkswagen van required about 400,000 pieces, with a final weight of 1,543 lbs. It uses real wheels from a Type 2, and like all Volkswagen camper vans has a pop-up roof and sliding door. And the interior is built out just as a camper would be, down to the pair of toothbrushes for overnight stays.
I know more than a few people that are just freaks for LEGO. I really had no clue it was as huge as it appears to be today. I remember playing with them as a child, stepping on them as an adult, and celebrating that I have rid my house of them now that my kids are grown.
That said, this is pretty awesome.
