This may look like a real space shuttle at first glance but it is actually a replica comprised of thousands of LEGO bricks.

This amazing LEGO space shuttle not only looks like an accurate model of its NASA counterpart, but it “even simulates a launch with flashing lights under the boosters and a vocal countdown.”

Two Japanese LEGOsmiths used 65,000 bricks and 1,590 hours to complete this replica, which appeared at the Nasu Highland Amusement Park in Japan.

The duo behind this creation are said to be participating in an event to build the tallest LEGO tower.
