People collect all sorts of things and have done so for many years. You have your typical stamp, stone and coin collections all the way to magazines, newspapers, jewellery, cars and so on. So it comes to no surprise that some people also collect Lego sets. But I had no idea how big a hobby that is for some people until I saw an entire city built out of Lego blocks.

You should definitely browse through all the photos in that gallery to appreciate the planning that went into designing this city, the setting up, the detail-orientedness and the execution. It is mind-boggling that you can actually create an entire city with Lego blocks. There is a Lego set for everything. This city does not even use all the town Lego sets, but see how much you can already build.

A few facts about this Lego town by mawich:

  • The design phase was 18 months (not fulltime).
  • It took 1 week (not fulltime) to assemble and photograph. After that it was dismantled.
  • The surface area of the town is 180 x 90 inches (4.6 x 2.3 m).
  • Approximately 133 different Lego town sets were involved.

Unfortunately, the total number of Lego pieces used for the city is unknown.

This is an incredible effort, and I can only command the creator on the idea, the imagination and the execution.

What are you collecting in small or big ways?
