Life-size LEGO Volkswagen Bus unveiled

A full-size LEGO Volkswagen T2 Bulli made of 400,000 bricks was unveiled at the f.re.e leisure and travel fair in Munich, Germany this week.

Two experienced LEGO creators have created a stunning full-size Volkswagen Bus that will be unveiled to the public later this week. The f.re.e leisure and travel fair in Munich, Germany will host this creation which will make its first public appearance.

This impressive LEGO replica of more than 700 kg was executed in just 6 weeks. The very short delay gave Rene Hoffmeister, one of only 12 officially certified LEGO model makers in the world, and his colleague a lot of fun, but in the end, earned them a world record.

Everything had been planned by Hoffmeister and his colleague, Pascal Lenhard, before. They had prepared the plans using 3D images of the Volkswagen T2 in addition to calculating the number of bricks required for the final construction.

The project did very well for the creator duo until they realized that they would miss about 20,000 transparent pieces for the windows of the Bus.

The duo says that it was at this moment that they were not going to be able to do it anymore. Hoffmeinster adds: “Essentially, we would have needed a nine-day week. However, as they don’t exist, the only option was night shifts.”

Despite this, the two creators managed to finalize the full-size Volkswagen T2 in time. Most impressive? Their construction has the famous pop-up roof, a sliding door and a complete interior.

This Volkswagen Bus is more than 5m long, 1.9m wide and almost 2m high. If you prefer it with the pop-up roof opened, the T2 rises to 3m.
