Secret Underground Vault Contains All Lego Sets In History

 

 

 

 

 

 

” I watched The Lego Movie once again. Like the first time, I cried like a little kid. It’s a good movie, but the strong emotional reaction came from deep inside, firing the same childhood memories that The Lego Memory Lane—Leg0 HQ’s underground secret vault with all their sets—did when I visited it in Billund, Denmark.

  In Billund, everything is awesome. I was there back in June 2008 during an exclusive tour of the factory and it’s a magical wonderland. I saw how bricks and minifigs are made. How they store them in a giant 65-foot-high Lego cathedral controlled by robots—which seems out of Willy Wonka. Then I visited their museum house—the original family home of the company founder—which has some of the best and most famous Lego sets in history on display.

  But it was under that house where I found the Holy Grail of Nostalgia, a high security vault that contains every Lego set in history. This is the article I wrote about it back then. I realized it contains the reason why The Lego Movie hit me right in the feels.

  I have to confess that life hasn’t been very good lately. Work around the clock, not enough free time, trying to have kids and crashing badly… all while moving to a country I don’t particularly like, away from my best friends and family. Maybe that’s why visiting Lego’s Memory Lane-the secret vault guarding almost every Lego set ever manufactured-touched me in a way I didn’t expect.

  This wasn’t amazement or simple awe. I was already astonished to no end by the tour of the Lego factory. No, this was something else, something bigger than the impressive view of the 4,720 Lego sets inside this lair. These weren’t just simple boxes full of bricks. These were tickets to ride a time portal to emotions and simpler days long forgotten.”

Drivable Lego Car Built Piece By Piece — All 500,000

 

 

 

 

” The first drivable Lego car is made of 500,000 pieces and runs on air.

  The inventors of the Lego car are Australian entrepreneur Steve Sammartino and Romanian Raul Oaida, a self-taught technology guru.

  The car — known as the Super Awesome Micro Project — can reach a top speed of 18 mph. It was built in Romania and delivered to a location in the suburbs of Melbourne, Australia, where the car was test-driven, according to the inventors’ website.

  Even the engine is made of Legos, which has “four orbital engines and a total of 256 pistons,” according to the site. Only the tires and some load-bearing elements are not made of the plastic block toys.”
