A massive yellow ‘LEGO Brick’ was spotted on a trailer bed hauled by a truck in Billund, Denmark (with a safety vehicle hot on its heel, as it appears). It was a gigantic 1×4 piece that, technically, should be a plate than a brick, but given the scale of this piece, it is debatable. That said, stepping on it would be last of your worries. I think we all can all agree on that fact.
And no, the Blunderdore probably didn’t order this piece. It was likely heading to the new LEGO headquarters in Billund which, at this point, is still under construction. The new office complex, which is referred to as ‘LEGO Campus’, will feature 52,000 square-meter of LEGO brick-inspired offices and a public park. The plan for LEGO Campus was first announced sometime in mid-year 2016 and ground broken in February 2017.
The construction will proceed in phases, with the first phase expected to be ready for first employees this year (2019) and complete completion expected in 2021. So, yeah, this particular piece was probably heading to LEGO Campus that’s being constructed and also, it was likely not the last of it. It wouldn’t be the first time LEGO have ‘implemented’ LEGO bricks in the company’s building; they had been used with the LEGO House.
Anyways, it was kind of fun to see this larger-than-life 1×4. It was pretty darn surreal. Wait. Surely, it is not made of plastic, is it? The image was first tweeted by LEGO designer Mark John Stafford (@LEGO_Nabil) on April 29, 2019. Here’s the original tweet:
