This is impressive. Check out the waterfall.



I'm having some trouble with the pictures, but there are more and better ones on their site. The model is about 10 feet long and five feet wide.

How did they count those bricks? Before assembly? Because I really don't see any other way.

It's a ballpark estimate. There's no good way to do it. They can't really count them before assembly, because they don't know exactly what they're going to need before they've actually built the thing.

Wouldn't hurt as much as a single brick, the pressure would be a lot less due to the larger surface area and therefore it wouldn't be as painful as, you know, stepping on a fecking Lego brick.

What about disassembling it and spreading them out in the optimum pain ratio? Mwahahahaha

You really want to disassemble that many bricks?

Note here: Stepping on LEGO studs doesn't hurt at all. You can walk on those green baseplates without even noticing them. What hurts is when a brick is sitting by itself on the floor. One of those 1-centimeter cubes they use to learn about measurements in primary schools hurts just as much.

I beg to differ.

Oh, come now. That doesn't hurt.

I dunno. I've definitely stepped on some of mine without realizing it when my LEGO room was particularly messy.

I have a box, but it's not big enough. You can never have enough Lego.

The room in which I keep and use my LEGOs. I don't understand what's so hard about that.

EDIT: Guys, can we maybe not just quote other people without adding anything? That's really just spam, and it's annoying. We don't care about your opinions if you can't even be bothered to write them out.

It's just the fact that you have enough LEGOs to justify setting aside an entire room for them. It's not something you hear about every day.

I though we'd been over this. I have a list of all my Star Wars LEGOs stored on this computer, so if anyone needs to reference it to know what to get me for Christmas, here it is:
Spoiler:
 
About half of those are on a wall of bookshelves in the LEGO room. The others are in a closet with full shelves in the room next to it. The LEGO room also has all my other LEGOs, the bulk of which are Castle and Bionicle, as well as the tubs of random parts and some boards and stuff that I build on.

I find this less amusing than you might imagine.
