Two Japanese LEGOsmiths used a whopping 65,000 bricks and 1,590 man hours to complete the stunning diorama, which even simulates a launch with flashing lights under the boosters and a vocal countdown. The only thing it doesnt do is lift off.
Part of the Nasu Space Center, it appeared as a scene in Nasu Highland Park, an amusement park in Japan.
