150,000-Piece Working (It Moves) LEGO Jet Engine

lego-plane-engine-1.jpg

This is a 152,455-piece, 677-pound, cross-section, cross-legged, wonk-eyed, 1:2 scale LEGO model of a Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 airplane engine. That's the same engine that powers Boeing's 787 but NOT choo-choo trains. Choo-choo trains run on the imaginations of children. It's true, they keep them all cramped up in the boxcars with these little helmets on and-- "Dammit, GW, you don't actually believe that do you?" *stripping down to bare ass to streak town hall* THE TRUTH MUST BE HEARD.

Hit the jump for several more shots and a worthwhile video of the thing in action.

    I've always disapproved the idea of gluing lego together. The whole point is is that they're reusable, man!

  • glad to see they used legos and not megablocks >.<

  • I saw that on the news this morning. It's strangely beautiful.
