Volkswagen Presents Lego T2 Camper Van And We're Already Dreaming Of A Life-Sized Lego World

Volkswagen Presents Lego T2 Camper Van And We’re Already Dreaming Of A Life-Sized Lego World

How would a Lego world for humans look like?

The Volkswagen Type 2 is one of the German automaker’s most enduring designs and was even kept in production in Brazil until 2013. Volkswagen sold countless numbers around the world and, while the T2 generation isn’t as cute as the original T1, it has its place in history. At the F.re.e Leisure and Travel Fair in Munich, Germany, the T2 made an unexpected appearance in Lego form, proving that making full-scale recreations of cars out of thousands of Lego bricks is now a thing.

The second generation of Volkswagen’s world-renown compact multi-purpose van debuted in the Summer of 1967 and was kept in production until 1979 for the American and European markets. The Argentinian market enjoyed the T2 as late as 1986 while over in Mexico you could buy a new T2 up until 1994. However, the T2 was most popular in Brazil where Volkswagen built it at the São Bernardo do Campo plant until 2013 when the production officially ended with a run of 600 Last Edition vehicles.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss LEGO

2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss LEGO

The only thing missing from this massive build is the Silverado Trail Boss’ 5.3-liter V-8 engine

Chevrolet has teamed up with LEGO to create a full-sized brick version of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss. The LEGO Group’s Model Shop in Enfield, Connecticut is responsible for the design and assembly of the monstrous LEGO Silverado. It’s made up of 334,544 LEGO pieces and weighs 3,307 pounds. Needless to say, completing this massive 20-foot build took some time and a lot of manpower. In total, 18 builders helped complete the life-sized truck, and more than 2,000 hours were consumed in the endeavor. The LEGO Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss isn’t just for show, either. It was built in collaboration with Warner Bros. Pictures as part of the latter’s marketing blitz to promote the new LEGO movie, “The LEGO Movie 2: Second Part.” The movie is now in theaters in the U.S.

LEGO and Dodge’s Latest Collaboration Gives Our Mini Figs a Pair of Pony Cars to Play Around With

You can’t ask for better options than a 1970 Charger R/T and a 2018 Challenger SRT Demon

LEGO and Dodge are no strangers to one another. The two companies have partnered numerous times in the past, and it’s the strength of that partnership that opened the doors for the creation of a new, limited edition Speed Champions set featuring miniature versions of the 1970 Dodge Charger R/T and 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. The kit costs $39.95 and, in addition to the two muscle cars, it also comes with three mini figures — two drivers and a race marshal — and a Christmas tree. No, not a traditional Christmas tree, but the start-go, lights-based system that are used to start modern drag races. To commemorate the partnership — and the subsequent product — LEGO and Dodge also teamed up to create a commercial featuring none other than NHRA drag racing champion Leah Pritchett. This early in the year, the product planning is already on point.

This racer for the living room carpet is still an ideal gift to your significant other

Two years after Lego recreated the Porsche 911 GT3 RS in stunning fashion as part of thelarge-scale Technic collection, its race-going brother joins the fleet. Welcome to the 911 GT3 RSR by Lego Technic, with most of the aero insanity seen on the real thing recreated in model form.

Porsche’s 911 RSR is a menacing machine, one capable of taking on the world’s best in GT racing and beating them all with ease, as it did at last year’s edition of the Le Mans 24 Hours. Now, you can purchase a downsized version with a similar level of complexity, in keeping with the proportions, at a much-reduced premium and without having to contact a professional team of engineers to put it together.

It works as it should with painstaking attention to detail

People are building anything from Lego, quite literally. The creation we’re discussing today isn’t as groundbreaking as that full-scale running and driving Bugatti Chiron, but it’s still amazing: a fully-functioning Ford Falcon engine.

This here isn’t just a scale reproduction of the inline-6 4.0-liter engine that powers some Australian Ford Falcons made out of Lego parts. No, this is a recreation that actually works, mated to a Lego ZF 6-speed gearbox.
