    Someone please explain “height of two studs” as opposed to him saying height of the studs

    • KAZAM707

      November 23, 2021 at 9:13 pm

      He’s referring to the piece that is flat on top that is the length of two studs (connects over two studs). Height was a poor word choice.

    November 23, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    So who actually designs the models? Do they use software to convert a 3D model into a Lego model? Do they also use machines to put models for the park together?

    ok……………………………………………………… I got to go. bye!

  27. Arcturion Blade

    November 24, 2021 at 10:35 am

    This guy is living the dream. I love Lego and do build sets by official instructions but also enjoy building custom MOCs (My Own Creation) in my spare time. I find it very relaxing and works the ol’ brain matter using problem solving and puzzle construction, figuring out how to get the correct shapes you want using the limited techniques and parts you have on hand.

    It’s a definitely a challenge but it’s fun. That said, I could never do it professionally since I only build in Lego for myself and couldn’t take the pressure of doing it competitively with others.

  28. Ira Alifia

    November 24, 2021 at 10:38 am

    Where do I send an application?

  29. Mateusz Cielas

    the day he stops building… he starts killing

  32. noodles6669

    November 24, 2021 at 1:06 pm

    Wait they don’t use the orange tool to separate bricks?

    • Mackenzie Smith

      November 24, 2021 at 1:17 pm

      Because when they build, they are using an adhesive that makes it harder to get the LEGO out. And there are situations that it is 1x easier just to use the pliers

  33. the distinguished

    Why don’t they put those pliers in Lego sets instead of those orange plastic things lol

    Hands down Lego is the best toy ever invented. I love them as a kid and so do my boys. They can spend hours building new creations and they by FAR spend more time playing With them than any other toy.
