talk about crumple zones


#3

That driver is not walking away from that.


#4

Made me think of the ol’ Spy Hunter for some reason.

I’m most curious as to whether any of the Lego pieces actually snapped in the aftermath.

#5

My Lego insurance adjuster isn’t going to be happy about this.


#6

“Crumple Zone” must be the name of a Demolition Derby Event.


#7

Do be fair the driver didn’t walk into it either


#8

Cannot stand that “cutting to the downbeat” of the Blue Danube Waltz, though. Let me watch the damn crash! Don’t keep cutting away every few seconds.


#9

That I still didn’t get the mail telling me that I won the Porsche bothers me.

The smash: not so much. Not a single brick was harmed, I reckon.


#10

Air bags failed to deploy.


#11

Alas, while most of the debris is just undamaged parts flying away, at least some parts in the left front suspension got damaged beyond repair… (at least that’s what I think it says, I must admit that my German is a bit rusty)

Your German is quite good, if you can translate Vorderradaufhängung without looking it up. =D

FTR, this is a typical “Lego Technik” problem, as the depicted facebook post said. And I, for one, wouldn’t call this a brick. I am fairly flexible in my definition of a Lego brick but not so flexible as to admit I would be wrong… :wink:

More importantly, building Lego is not a team exercise.

#15

Reminds me of a Transformers movie. Just needs a little lens flare…


#16

Still would probably get a half-decent IIHS rating though.

They’d just make a category for this car specifically. Like they do with every new model-year.

“Best in class”


#17

Ah the irony of filming something that happens in an instant of a second in slow motion so that you can watch it properly and then fast cut editing it so that you can’t.


#18

I found this to be unreasonably upsetting.


#19

Me as well. Somehow I feel empathy for plastic bricks.
