In the latest entry in the storied and amazing history of incredible replicas of famous stadiums constructed entirely out of LEGO bricks, we have the LEGO Fenway Park.

The 12 square foot replica of the famed, historic and longtime home of the Boston Red Sox required a whopping 28,000 bricks and took 450 hours to design and build. Amazing. David Ortiz seriously should take a self-serving selfie with this thing at some point.

LEGOLAND Discovery Center Boston created a time-lapse video above documenting the model’s construction.

The LEGO Fenway ultimately will be placed in MINILAND, a landscape of Boston constructed entirely out of LEGO® bricks. It will be on permanent display at LEGOLAND Discovery Center Boston when it opens on May 23. Far out.

LEGO replicas of stadiums are not a new phenomenon, and let’s hope it isn’t something that is going away anytime soon. Between the Fenway Park model above and the LEGO replicas of the Chicago Cubs’ legendary Wrigley Field, the Buffalo Bills’ Ralph Wilson Stadium and the Buckeyes’ Ohio Stadium, any time a person is willing to put an absurd amount of effort and hours in constructing these amazing models, everyone is a winner. Except for the builder’s family, should he have one.
