Big LEGO bricks built out of little ones. These fully-playable LEGO bricks are 1000 times the size of normal ones.
About this creation
Many people have built large-scale LEGO blocks using small ones. However, Sean thought it would be interesting to extend the idea by making pieces that had more visual interest, as an exploration of creating three dimensional shapes, curved surfaces, and other interesting angles that are common in LEGO pieces.
Putting it all together Afterwards, Sean made 82 of these mega-sized LEGO blocks and assembled this 3-foot long Ferrari Formula One Race Car.
After building some simple rectangular bricks, Sean began modeling the more interesting shapes, like a walkie-talkie, a control stick, a hinge brick, a bracket, LEGO flowers, round pieces, slopes, grilles, and more.
Each piece provided its own challenge. The hinge brick needed to actually hinges. The flowers' stems emerge from the base at unusual angles.
It was important to Sean that all of the pieces work together, just like the real LEGO pieces do. As such, the bricks were all modelled accurately, including their undersides and interiors, so that they can interconnect as standard LEGO bricks do.
So cool! I actually like this more than the life size statues you see people build! I've been pondering the idea of making life size bricks, but probably out of foam so when a building collapses its all fun and games
LOL this is fun. If i had more Lego's I would build more of these super sized lego's. If i may.... watch : http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/200957.
Very good. I like it.
O eh Sean..... THANKS for speeding up MOC pages. You made me very happy with it. Neow would peanut say (Jeff Dunham)
He He that is seriously EXACTLY like one of my dreams.. I dreamt one time that all my furniture in my room was made of gigantic Lego bricks so i could take apart my bed and make it into a chair or a dresser and so on... and i am thinking of actually doing that, so if i do i will definetly post that on here LOL
I like the idea and think you´ve done a great work. However, your "Mega Bricks" aren´t 1000 times as big as a normal, they´re roughly 10 times as big as the normal one. (Example: Your green 1x2 piece with a cross in the middle is about 20 studs wide, and the normal is 2 studs.)
a couple of you people are dumb. does art HAVE to have a point? these are amazing. i had never thought of that but now that i see this. it makes me want to try it. there doesnt have to be a point to this, its just another way to explore the uses of LEGO. amazing idea.
very interesting all the parts you wished you had, you could have. if only ! well done
I like it

Sean, these are awesome! I love the fact that they are still usable together and you can create Mega-MOC's with them. I especially like the hinge brick. It's so cool that it really works! Nice job and keep bringing us your awesome MOC's.
Hehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehe this is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cool.ace moc.love it.
Wow. I am truly frightened in witness of your genius. Brick sculptures like these really showcase your creativity and audacity in a different and stunning way. So shocking, yet simple and vast at the same time. Truly inspiring, Sean!
