Over the course of 2,000 hours, the group assembled the 334,544 pieces required to make this 1:1-scale plastic truck in Connecticut.

The full model weighs 3,307 pounds, which is actually about 1,000 pounds less than the real thing.

Chevy and Warner Bros. Pictures teamed up two years ago to build a full-size Lego Batmobile to promote The Lego Batman Movie. That partnership continues with this Silverado, which is featured in the forthcoming Lego Movie 2: The Second Part.

Legos aren't inexpensive, so we can't imagine how much this full-size Silverado cost in parts alone -- never mind the design, assembly and shipping expenses.

There's no word yet, sadly, on the prospect of a version of this kit you can buy yourself.
