Life-size replica of cars in LEGO is becoming old. On our end alone, we have already come across quite a handful, including Nathan Sawaya’s Batmobile, a 2-ton Toyota Camry, and a LEGO Technic-based Bugatti Chiron. Though the latter did stood out as a life-size replica that is actually drivable, albeit very slowly, and not a mere sculpture. Speaking of life-size replica of cars in LEGO and sculpture… here’s another: a Full-size LEGO 2019 Chevrolet Silverado.
Commissioned by Chevrolet in collaboration with Oxford Community School’s FIRST LEGO League and Detroit’s Ralph Waldo Emerson Elementary’s A World in Motion Program, the LEGO version of Chevy’s 2019 Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss was unveiled at the on-going North America International Motor Show 2019. And not surprisingly, this Full-size LEGO 2019 Chevrolet Silverado has something to do with the upcoming The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part.
If you recall, in the first The LEGO Movie, LEGO Batman was rocking a LEGO Batmobile from Chevy which the automaker also commissioned a life-size replica of it which debuted in 2017’s NAIAS. Anyways, this time, Chevy is not involved in Bat’s ride; instead a custom mini-build of the Silverado High Country in The LEGO Movie sequel.
The Full-size LEGO 2019 Chevrolet Silverado (1,500 kilograms) was created by 18 LEGO master builders, burning through over 2,000 hours. It packs an astonishing 334,544 pieces of LEGO elements, measuring 72 inches (6 feet/1.83 meters) high, 240 inches (20 feet/6.10 meters) long and 96 inches (8 feet/2.44 meters) wide, and tips the scales at a hefty 3,307 lbs. Rounding up this impressive build are unique working lights, as well as graphic details.
