Earlier today, LEGO revealed a large-scale model of a red 2×4 brick that is located at the Flatiron District in New York City to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the LEGO brick. The model consists of 133,000 bricks, weighs 1,200 pounds, and took about 350 hours to construct. The 10-foot 2×4 will be at the Flatiron Plaza at the corner of Fifth Avenue, 23rd Street and Broadway, at Madison Square Park and will be there until 4pm Sunday, January 28.
LEGO is going all out with their marketing for the 60th anniversary celebration. Yesterday, it was revealed there will be some Walmart exclusive 60th anniversary LEGO sets that are reported to be available starting on Sunday as well. Check out the time-lapse video of the construction of the 2×4 brick below.
