To promote The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, Chevrolet and LEGO decided to create a full-sized 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss using only the plastic bricks. This massive vehicle was built at a model shop in Connecticut by 18 LEGO Master Builders, and took over 2,000 hours to assemble all 334,544 pieces, which make up the body, lights, wheels and tires, complete with functional lights.

The full model weighs in at a hefty 3,307 pounds, which means it’s around 1,000 pounds less than its metal counterpart. It stands 6 feet tall, 20 feet long and 8 feet wide, with the most commonly used piece being the red 2×8 stud brick.
“Since this truck is just a display piece, don’t expect a working engine, either. The real Silverado Trail Boss uses a 5.3-liter V8, which develops 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque,” reports Digital Trends.
