As a kid who could never get past mindlessly trying to fit as many Legos onto one flat green piece as possible, this is especially impressive. 57-year old Buffalo Bills fan and season ticket holder Robert J. Hall used over 30,000 Legos to create a 20-foot-long, 3-foot-deep Lego replica of Ralph Wilson Stadium, home of the Bills since 1973, with working video display and everything. It’s the kind of endeavor that makes you think “it is marvelous what humanity is capable of” and “hahah what” at the same time.
Creating a masterpiece like this wasn’t easy.
“I was leaning over the corner of the stadium where the M&T Bank sign is trying to place a yard marker on the field, and the plastic stool collapsed,” said Hall. “I fell right into the corner of the stadium and smashed it to smithereens. It pushed the field 2-3 inches forward and the part of the stadium that overhangs the table fell on the ground. I cried.”
Thankfully the project came back together quickly, and until somebody breaks out a Marlins Park made entirely of Duplo this monolithic structure will stand as the best possible sports arena made from children’s toys. My Cowboys Stadium made from Lincoln Logs looks like shit compared to this.
The full tour (courtesy of the official website of the Buffalo Bills, by way of Sportress Of Blogitude) is after the jump. Love, admire, imagine how many crappy looking helicopters you could make with this many Legos.
