Massive LEGO space shuttle built in Japan, gets its own command center

The Nasu Highland Park has some sort of a LEGO event going on. That’s where this space shuttle is from, it took 65000 LEGO bricks and was completed by two people in 1590 hours. The biggest LEGO space shuttle has a command center of its own, complete with a red countdown button. At the end of the countdown, flashing lights and rocket booster sounds complete the show. Awesome as the shuttle is, the event will also have the world’s highest LEGO tower that should be completed by April 3. Video after the jump!
