334,544 LEGO piece were used to create a full-sized Chevrolet Silverado to help celebrate the launch of "The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part."

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. I had plenty of friend who did though. And I’m going to guess that if they had this job, creating a full-sized Chevrolet Silverado using 334,544 LEGO pieces, that would be their dream job!

A team of 18 building comprised of students from the Oxford Community School’s FIRST LEGO league and from Detroit’s Ralph Waldo Emerson Elementary’s A World in Motion Program as well as people from Chevrolet spent well over two thousand hours assembling a near replica of the 2019 Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss.

That, in my mind, takes a lot of patience and dedication! (Just knowing from having assembled a few “smaller” LEGO sets with my friends when I was a child.)

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!
