Doesn’t Drive That Well, But It’s A Snap To Fix

Pranks usually don’t do much for me, but when they involve Legos, well, that’s quite different. The folks who work at Legoland in Southern California decided to have some fun with the boss, and that’s why, one day, they replaced his Volvo with a meticulous replica made out of Legos:

That’s 201,076 Legos making up that “vehicle.” Now that they pulled this one off, maybe they can replace MY car with a Lego replica. It might not work that well as a car, but it’s more likely to have air conditioning that works.

    @Madigan Ray, On the Legoland boat tour today, the tour gal kept talking about the models built with numbers of Legos. I kept wanting to correct her.

  2. Christian says:

    Think of how awesome it is to repair your car when you get into an accident, it’s easy to rebuild and you can even redesign it any time!

    P.S. Don’t get into a car accident nonetheless.

  3. Marie again says:

    Sorry, I’m probably being a worse version of THAT guy.

    Lego(s) = awesome either way.

  4. Marie says:

    @Madigan : But…most people say “Legos”. If the majority of people accept it as the plural, shouldn’t that be an alternative option?

    not a good enough reaction! cant we get at least one “holy crapamoly!” or something?

    @Madigan Ray
    You’re right, though I would also accept the lowercase ‘legos,’ since the word has come to mean ‘any plastic brick that connects to other plastic bricks.’ Be proud of your lexicon Legocy.

    I’ve never heard the phrase ‘Lego elements,’ does that get used within the company a lot?

  7. Randy says:

    I wonder if the doors on a Lego car close better than those on my minivan.

  8. Madigan Ray says:

    I work at Legoland and we all loved this. Not be be THAT guy though, but the plural of Lego is Lego. Also accepted: Lego bricks and Lego elements. I got a stern lecture from a master model builder about that when I kept saying Legos.
