    Amazing! I dread to think how much that cost to make?

    10x bigger (big enough to sit in) would be interesting, just to see if lego mechanics scale. For example, can a normal person actually steer a lego car when scaled up or does it require too much torque.

    Hi, It cost about £80 to £100 in materials.

    I think I could get him into an 8 x scale version, I think if the parts were at least 50% infill it would be strong enough, but very heavy.

    That's very cool, thanks for sharing.

    Looks like Reuben was suffering from the same hayfever as my son (he does the exact same eye rubbing) ;)

    Excellent work and video. It's not often I watch YT videos all the way through but this was particularly informative.

    Reuben has subsequently been to the opticians and now has glasses for reading!
