Lego Space Shuttle
Two Japanese LEGOsmiths used a whopping 65,000 bricks and 1,590 man hours to complete the stunning diorama, which even simulates a launch with flashing lights under the boosters and a vocal countdown. The only thing it doesn’t do is lift off.
Part of the “Nasu Space Center,” it appeared as a scene in Nasu Highland Park, an amusement park in Japan.
