It’s been a big week for Chevrolet at the Detroit Auto Show.  Bolt EV was named the 2017 North American Car of the Year.  We introduced the all-new 2018 Traverse that will complete the transformation of the broadest and freshest lineup of crossovers and SUVs in the industry. And the show was also the site of our next disruption, with today’s unveiling of the new, life-size LEGO® Batmobile from Chevrolet.

Measuring 17-feet long and featuring exclusive stud shooters, the LEGO Batmobile from Chevrolet is inspired by Batman’s Speedwagon, featured in “The LEGO Batman Movie” hitting theatres on February 10. Chevrolet will serve as the Official Automotive Partner of the LEGO Batman Movie.  This is the perfect movie for Chevrolet to team up with given family, community and imagination are core themes and core values for our brand.

The LEGO Batmobile from Chevrolet will also appear in our “Real People. Not Actors.” campaign debuting this weekend, only this time we’re featuring Real LEGO® Minifigures. Not Actors.

Blue Lego Corvette

Ever since he can remember, Dave Slater has always wanted a 1969 Corvette. But rather than scrimping and saving for it, he just went ahead and built his dream car.

Out of Legos.

Lego_Corevette_build_stepsSince he uploaded it on Aug. 29, Dave’s design and creation of a 1969 Chevrolet Corvette is gathering support among both Lego and Corvette enthusiasts.

“I didn’t expect for the project to take off like it has. The response has been enthusiastic ever since I posted images of the design back in May.”

Dave has been a long time Lego fan, and sharing his love with his wife started him on the road to create this Lego masterpiece.

“Like so many other people, I grew up playing with Legos, but I put the sets away sometime around high school. When I found out my wife had never played with Legos, I knew I had to get out my old sets.”

Sharing the joy of Legos with his wife reignited Dave’s interest in the hobby, and he began thinking of ways he could design his own creations. He soon decided his first original creation would be his favorite car – the 1969 Corvette.

“For as long as I can remember, I have loved this car. The car just speaks to me. I love the curves and shape of it.”

Dave works as a designer in the litigation industry, and used his skills as an artist to help him create the Corvette.

“By day, I’m an artist creating 2D and 3D models within the tech sector, so I’m constantly drawing and modeling. When I set out to create the Corvette, I started by using the tools Lego provided to determine what pieces I would need for the build. I’d drawn the Corvette and modeled it in 3D so many times, I knew every curve of it.”

The Corvette ended up needing around 1,500 Lego pieces to create. Though he started off with many Legos of his own, Dave tapped in to a worldwide community of Lego enthusiasts to find the pieces he needed. That in itself was hard enough. What made the search even more difficult, however, was Dave’s color choice.

“I chose to make the Corvette blue for a couple of reasons. For one, it’s my favorite color. Secondly, this particular Corvette has always been blue in my mind (although I do prefer the C2 in red). And lastly, the online community tends to build kits like this out of red, black or yellow pieces, so I knew the blue would stand out.”
