If you've ever had occasion to wonder how many LEGO bricks it would take to assemble a full-sized Ford Explorer, you're in luck -- the answer is 380,000. More pertinent facts: it takes 22 designers over 2,500 hours to complete the build, and the replica vehicle would weigh in at 2,654 pounds (including a 768-pound aluminum supporting base). We know all this because the LEGO Explorer has already debuted at Ford's Chicago Assembly Plant, and it will soon make its way to LEGOLAND Florida, via a trailer with transparent sides so motorists can view the special LEGO construct while it's en route. Once there, it will be a part of LEGOLAND's Ford Driving School for Children, in which participating kids can experience driving their own vehicles at a maximum speed of three miles per hour.
