Yet another full-scale vehicle replication with LEGO bricks has come about, and this one is of a Ford Explorer. The bright red Legoland Florida edition Explorer is set to be the lead display at the new 150-acre Legoland Florida theme park in Winter Haven, near Orlando.

Crafted by 22 Ford employees in Connecticut, the ‘vehicle’ is made up of 382,858 Lego bricks, and those numbers translate into a rather hefty beast – the structure is supported by a 348 kg interior aluminium base, and with all the bricks in place, tips the scale at 1,203 kg.

The vehicle ‘rolled off’ the line at Ford’s Chicago Assembly Plant earlier this week, and will now make its way to Florida, where it will be loaded on to a trailer with transparent sides and serve as a display at the theme park, which opens on October 15. In 2004, a life-sized Lego replica of a Volvo XC90 was built, also for a Legoland, this one in California.
