This year at BrickVention, one model truly stole the show. From this angle, it just looks like a large plane model - impressive already, but not particularly unique. The backside, however, shows a realistic cross-section of the plane - the entire QF A380 has been rendered in perfect minifig-scale, interior cabin and all. There are easter eggs (characters, movie references) and accurate details (three floors, chairs for first and second class, bathrooms, a cockpit, landing gear, etc). A mix of NXT and Power Functions components automate some of the features. Did I mention that the jet engines actually spin?
