    So let's say you have 70,000 legos...

    Adrian Drake spent 475 hours over the course of 21 months to build this painstakingly accurate model of Firefly's Serenity entirely out of Lego bricks. The result is this 135-pound, seven-foot long, 70,000-brick beauty that looks especially shiny paired with its minifig crew.

    Drake debuted his minifig-scale Serenity today at Brickfair in Chantilly, Virginia. He used the Quantum Mechanix blueprints for the ship as his starting point, converting the design to Lego to make it as accurate as possible. The ship doesn't just look great on the outside; it also contains all of the compartments from the set except the engine room, which proved impossible to build while maintaining structural integrity of the ship. The cargo bay and drive light up, both engines rotate, the wings swing out, and Inara's shuttle detaches. It's an incredible feat of Lego engineering

    Lots of pics on his flickr page:

    I actually had a dream last night that I was building with Legos. I'm always amazed at what people can do with them.

    I've long been a fan of The Brick Testament.
