While I was never a huge LEGO aficionado when I was a child (don’t get me wrong, I built plenty of magical creations with LEGO), I never obsessed over getting those huge sets with thousands of pieces.

The build of the LEGO Silverado was done completely by hand and even has working lights and some unique graphic details. What I found fascinating, however, was actually watching this time-lapse of the Chevy Silverado LEGO build.

Impressive, right? Well, congrats to the build team for putting together such an amazing LEGO masterpiece! Those kids should get a kit of their own (with the same 334,544 LEGO pieces). I’m sure their parents would absolutely LOVE that!

HTD says: I love when adults can be kids again (and especially work with other kids on creative projects). This LEGO build of the Chevy Silverado looks like so much fun! I’m a bit jealous!
