The Love Boat in Legos. Love, exciting and new
People are infatuated with Legos. After recently profiling a man’s 250,000-brick Lego “Garrison of Moriah,” another man, Ryan McNaught, The Brickman, has created his own 250,000 brick behemoth, a replica of The Love Boat.
“The Love Boat,” for those unfamiliar, was a television program set on a cruise ship, airing from September 24,1977 until May 24, 1986.
The Lego Love Boat creation, currently on display at Chicago’s Brickworld Lego convention, features more than 250,000 bricks and measures in at over 10 feet long. For metric users, the Lego boat is over 3 meters long and over 1 meter high!
According to The Brickman:
- “It has 450 minifigs enjoying a fabulous cruise and the best holiday they have ever had!”
- “Its full of power functions, The anchor, bow thrusters, the lifeboat raise/lower, the propeller, and the rudder at the rear.”
- “The ship of course has all the Love Boat crew onboard as well as a whole series of 80’s washed up TV stars including none other than the Hoff!”
