How to build a huge LEGO house – James May’s Toy Stories

Above, a preview from Episode 6 of James May’s Toy Stories, and it’s a great one (if not a bit spoiler-ish). Watch as James May prepares to spend the night in a LEGO-built house. The really interesting part of this episode, not shown in the preview, is how they figure out how to make it structurally sound, test after test after test. They’re dealing with LEGO physics on an entirely new scale.

Update: The entire episode was available on YouTube in parts, but has since been removed. You can find a book about their projects on Amazon.com, or watch the episode on Hulu.com or via iTunes.

After watching this, I’m guessing any kid (or adult) will look at their LEGO pieces a bit differently.
