Largest ever LEGO tower

Post by clarkovitch on 4/12/2011, 10:50 am

Thought people might be interested in seeing this news story on the largest-ever LEGO tower that was built this weekend in Brazil: it's 31.19m tall, used over 500,000 bricks and took 6000 people to do it. Pretty impressive, huh?

Wow, nice. Me being from a portuguese speaking country makes me feel happy for the people over in Brazil, if only they invited us for more community builds, I'd hapilly pay the plane ride.

probably, brazil is a very "dirty" place, it'd probably end up being destroyed by some ruffians or theyd draw racist symbols, curse words, dirty phrases or just plain old turds everywhere... or they'd pee on it.

If you'd ever been to brazil, you'd know, even their capital is dirty, and I've only watched it in the news... at least they have money to fix it.

The info is all wrong. It took one person and four hours.

I found it quite easy. It gave me something to do when I was there the day before my birthday.

I checked a video recently of a Lego being lifted from the earth and was taken up to a height where he was at par with the horizon. Amazing it was. Anyone please share that link?

Thanks in advance and much appreciated.
