The latest full-sized vehicle replica to be completely made from Lego bricks is making its debut today in Australia. The Lego version of the eight-gen Toyota Camry was built with more than 500,000 Lego bricks and weighs two tonnes, which makes it 400 kg heavier than the actual car.

It took over 900 hours to assemble, the work being carried out over a period of eight weeks. That’s more than 40 times longer than Toyota takes to make a single Camry, including that taken for stamping panels, welding, painting, assembly and inspections.

The replica, designed by Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught, one of 14 Lego certified professionals in the world and the obly one in the southern hemisphere, is pretty detailed, and contains elements such as Toyota logos on the alloy wheels, hybrid lettering as well as working headlights, indicators and brake lights.

“It’s taken over two months to build and comprises more than 500,000 bricks, but I’m really pleased with the outcome and can’t wait to see what everyone else thinks of it. I’m delighted we have partnered with Toyota and I’ve had this opportunity to build my first full-scale Lego car,” he said.

The Lego Toyota Camry will be on display at the Brickman Awesome exhibition in Melbourne Museum Plaza until April 29, so if you have a yen for Lego and happen to be in Melbourne soon, make a beeline for this one.
