LEGO Stegosaurus

Name of Model: Stegosaurus
Created by: Henry Lim
Found at:
Henry Lim earned himself a bit of notoriety in the Lego fan community by building the largest dinosaur he could fit in his apartment. At one point, this stegosaurus was listed on eBay to try to make space, but it was not sold. This sculpture is able to hold its weight without glue, in spite of the size of its head. The tail needs outside support, however. At the time it was built, green bricks were still fairly hard to find and expensive. It is estimated to have taken a few thousand LEGO bricks. Surprisingly, this sculpture was made freehand without the use of CAD techniques. Some documentation and many more pictures are available at the model's webpage.
