We love LEGO because they continue to create projects that speak to the child in us. The best examples are the driveable LEGO Bugatti Chiron, the dramatic fat-wheeled LEGO Batmobile, and now a life-sized 2019 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss pickup truck that looks like the real deal. This off-road bad boy was built at a LEGO model shop in Connecticut by a team of 18 builders over the course of 2,000 hours (that’s 250 8-hour work days). 334,544 pieces later, this Silverado boasts all of the new Silverado’s styling cues like the huge black grille, the C-shaped headlights (that actually work), the curves in the body and the tailgate, and even the red tow hooks that are, quite obviously, not functional. This project was made to tie into the upcoming The LEGO Movie 2 where a miniature version will pull duty. As amazing as this LEGO build is, there’s no functioning engine or interior. In fact, the wheels and tires are made out of LEGOs, so don’t look to go bouldering in it.

In a world where gadgets are judged on how well they do their jobs despite being available in the smallest packages possible, the Hunt23 Ultra Compact Flashlight reigns supreme. They took all the life-proof features of the incredibly bright Hunt22 (iceproof / smashproof / waterproof / fireproof) and upgraded the titanium body with a tiny pry bar on the back that can be used as a flathead screwdriver or to open boxes, bottles, bags and cans. It’s also TSA-compliant so you don’t have to worry about traveling with it. This flashlight is the EDC tool you’ve been missing.
