Time well spent
I was recently given a tiny Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Lego set. 47 pieces. I put it together in no time. Michelangelo with a little cart thing. It was simple, but I loved it. You know; that feeling you get when you finish pretty much any Lego project.
That’s why I can’t imagine the elation that would accompany finishing this spectacular work of art. Lee Jones recently showed off his Lego Pillar of Autumn from Halo at BrickCon in Seattle. It was an undertaking that took three-and-a-half years to complete and cost approximately $7,000. The final product is more than seven feet long and weighs 220 pounds.
Because of its sheer size, it’s cringe-worthy thinking how nervous you’d have to be moving the iconic cruiser to the convention. One slip-up, and there’s four years down the drain.
