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 short, this is a key-shaped multi-tool built of stainless steel that has all of the tools you need for everyday repairs for everything from light switches to bicycles. Bit driver. Protractor. Metric and Imperial rulers. Imperial and Metric closed wrenches. Bottle Opener. File. Scoring tip. Wire bender and bike spoke key. Wire stripper. Screwdrivers. 1/4 hex driver pocket. So you might need to throw in some hex bits for specific projects, but otherwise, the Geekey has you covered for almost all of your everyday repair needs. As if that wasn’t enough, the hexogon can also serve as a smoking bowl, with the shaft of the key hollowed out to serve as a pipe.
