When you’re getting into the LEGO big leagues, those humble plastic bricks do not come cheap. Passionate builders often invest in some ridiculously expensive LEGO brick hauls. This is especially true when you’re constructing an ingenious design of outlandish proportions, which YouTuber Brickcrafts is renowned for. He’s even managed to make fully functional curved train tracks! We thought we’d seen some strange builds and fantastic LEGO cities, but we were wrong. In his latest LEGO City update, Brickcrafts takes us through the most recent additions to his quaint LEGO village and shocks us with a truly mind-blowing (and wallet-emptying) $3,500 LEGO brick order. Scroll down to get into the insanity.
A Huge LEGO City Means a Huge Price Tag
At 0:15, we’ve got renovations going on, including a new kitchen. This refurbished house is then placed in the LEGO village.
We must say, the picket fence at the 0:47 mark is too adorable. The circular garden fence idea using hinges is incredible, too.
Green fingers come out at 1:21, adding some leaves to the surroundings to spruce things up. After this, the garden fence is pushed into place, and some trees are added to inject some life. Oh, and a LEGO guy mowing the lawn as well. Good luck, little man. Better you than us.
Because of the elevation, a front staircase is added at the 2:19 mark so that the LEGO villagers can actually get inside their houses. And leave without breaking a leg.
We didn’t expect pumpkins to make an appearance in this video, but by 2:35, this is where we’re at. Admittedly, they are very cute, and probably not too expensive as far as LEGO bricks go. They do seem a little odd in combination with the rose flowers on the other side of the garden, though. Let us know what you think.
Fasten your seatbelts now, as we’ve got a time-lapse at 2:47, going on for thirty seconds. To cut a (not very) long story short, Brickcrafts has built a grassy hill in double time.
Up next, a bus station is added, to help the LEGO people get around easier. Shout out to the deer at 4:50, too. What would a village be without the local wildlife?
Finishing off the rest of the video, we have Brickcrafts explaining some more of the rationale behind this build, as well as a confession that the bus stop is in fact “illegal” because it’s not connected to the baseplate underneath. We won’t tell if you won’t.
An Aerial View, and the Receipts
After 6:15, we get a bird’s-eye view of the entire city and landscape, and it becomes easy to see how this setup can be so costly. In reality, the insane $3,500 order that Brickrafts has placed isn’t actually what this village is made out of. Instead, it’s merely intended to help build the remaining parts of the village, which will likely come out cheaper than what’s already there. To be honest, that just makes this build even crazier!
Keep your eyes peeled for a future update, where we’re sure Brickcrafts will fit some even more expensive LEGO bricks into his expansive LEGO City.
