I saw that yesterday on one my news sites. Neat, but a wast of time. What can you do with it?? Maybe it is going to Legoland? Ford should have spent the money on the employees and given them time off and had a huge party for everyone....and thay should give me something free as well....lol

Now that is just plain cool! I love Lego's. They used to be made in Colorado when I was a kid and I had bags full of them! Now my kids 30 years later play with the same bricks I played with as a kid.

Now they need to make a first gen ranger out of them.

As for the crash test, there will be legos everywhere and fixing your vehicle is as simple as you putting all the peices back together.

The world will never know.

I don't think it will go up the stairs at my parents house for the official Lego car crash test... going back down the steps.

Too bad they can't make cars as tough as Lego cars, dunno how the scale would work out but most kits could take the 16 steps of violent rolling a couple times before parts started coming off.

Yes in a way..... but, I've seen other Lego stuff that was far more cooler than an Explorer. Not impressed. Now...if you can open the doors and get inside it and it rolled around that would be the neatest thing....but it has none of that.....lol
