Given that the new LEGO movie is set to hit theaters in February, you can imagine that there would be a fair amount of hype surrounding the movie. However, I didn’t really see this one coming. Who knew that one of the largest automobile manufacturers would be doing something to this kind of scale. If you had a chance to go to the North American International auto show in Detroit this past weekend you might know what I’m talking about. If not, don’t worry. We have all the details:
According to Nerd Approved
Chevrolet teamed up with LEGO to unveil a life-sized The LEGO Batman Movie Batmobile at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this past weekend. It clocks in at 344,187 pieces, which is just a tad too much for an official set. Sorry to burst your bubble on that. Other eye-popping numbers: The LEGO Batmobile is 7-feet tall, 17-feet wide and weighs 1,695.5 pounds. It took 222 hours to design and 1,833 hours to build.
Chevy loved this LEGO Batmobile so much that they devoted an entire product page to it. Unfortunately, $48,000,000 is a bit pricey.
Who knows what the movie will bring but one thing’s for certain. This car definitely rules.
