Giant Lego Crane

Newer Older

A giant lego crane hoisting a "normal sized" Lego vehicle. I'd guess that the crane was about 15 feet tall.

Seen at Maker Faire 2006.

    Hey I saw the exact same crane at MF 2008!

    Yup, it was there, though I think the boom was shortened a bit -- it looked like the ceiling of this year's Lego room was too low for the full height of the crane. The builder had replaced the hook with a camera, though, which was a neat touch.

    He also had a nifty dragline built out of lego. A search for "Lego dragline" turned up his home page where he's got some additional photos and videos.
