The lights are on
Ktorrek's name probably isn't real, but his skill at Lego building is. The architect has constructed an eight-foot long Mass Effect Normandy SR-2.
According to Ktorrek's Flickr album, at one point he had purchased every 2x4 black brick in North America off of Bricklink, a large but unofficial marketplace for the building blocks. According to his notes, the project (which began in February) spanned 225 hours and 15,000 bricks.
The Normandy name is painted on, but the other insignia are made with bricks. It also still isn't quite complete, as he's working on refining the back end of Commander Shepard's ship. You can see the rest of the images on Ktorrek's Flickr page along with images of his Normandy SR-1, Mako, and numerous other creations.

That... Is... BADASS!
Looks really cool, don't think i'd have the patience for that
TOO. MUCH. LEGO!!!!
As much as I check Lego fans sites constantly, I remember seeing this a while ago. It's amazing for sure. Glad to see it made it onto GIO. I like.
That looks freaking sweeeeeeeet! Wonder if Shepard is on board? hmmmmm
That looks incredible. I just finished watching the guys from Tested build 3,000+ piece sets and that took them over 25 hours with instructions! I can't imagine spending 225 hours making this. They had waaaaay too much time on their hands.
Certainly looks like a daunting effort. I don't really like that the insignia and name are painted on though. That feels like a cheap solution marring an otherwise excellent project.
I wonder if the turians helped with this one too...
the time it took him to build the ship is about the amount of time it takes me to play through a character in the series lol.. cool none-the-less.
sometimes i help my daughter with her 50-piece MegaBlocks Barbie sets. so there's that.
So cool, and that took so freaking long to make!
*throws money on screen*
that is some serious skill
That is so freaking awesome!!
