This 2019 Silverado Lego build will not hurt parents’ feet, as they won’t be able to step on it. Chevrolet, together with Oxford Community School's Lego League students and Detroit’s Ralph Waldo Emerson Elementary’s A World in Motion Program, unveiled a life-size Lego Silverado at the 2019 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS).
If you’re trying to read that again, save your time and try not to. You really are looking at a life-size, 1:1 scale model of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss. The Silverado is a full-size pickup truck, which is why it is definitely larger than the locally-available Colorado. According to Chevrolet, this build is made up of 334,544 carefully picked Lego bricks that were manually placed by 18 Lego Master Builders for more than 2,000 hours.
The gigantic Lego Silverado build is part of the partnership between Chevrolet and Warner Bros. Pictures since “The Lego Batman Movie" in 2017. Chevrolet built a life-size Lego Batmobile for the movie, which was unveiled almost exactly a year ago and was later seen on the big screen. Well, guess what, a mini version of the Lego Silverado will be featured in the movie’s sequel, “The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part,” in theaters on February 8, 2019.
“Chevrolet is once again thrilled to be working with Warner Bros. to integrate the brand and one of our most iconic products – Silverado – into ‘The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part.’ The themes of determination and teamwork in the new movie align perfectly with our Chevy brand values and we are sure that the all-new Silverado has the features, technologies and strength that would help Emmet, Lucy and their friends as they take on exciting new challenges.”
For better visualization, the Silverado Lego model measures 72 inches high, 240 inches long, and 96 inches wide. It weighs 1,500 kg, mostly composed of 2x8 red stud bricks. 18 well-trained Lego Master Builders worked hand-in-hand in the Lego Group’s Model Shop in Enfield, Connecticut, New England, United States. The model has fully-functioning lights and graphic details, which makes the word ‘amazing’ an understatement.
Unfortunately, the life-size Lego Silverado isn't drivable but it has working lights and highly detailed decals on its body, so we guess that's fine.
