Still working on that 4,000 piece Lego set you got your kid for Christmas? The people over at Chevrolet just unveiled a full-size pickup truck that has 334,544 pieces and took more than 2,000 hours to build.

Chevy relied on 18 Lego Master Builders to construct the model of its 2019 Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss and it debuted at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit Saturday morning.

The effort is part of a marketing push for the vehicle, obviously, as Chevy has teamed with Warner Bros. Pictures to get the truck in “The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part,” which hits theaters on Feb. 8.

Here are some more specs on the truck:

  • Dimensions: 6 feet high, 20 feet long, 8 feet wide.
  • Total weight: 3,307 pounds.
  • Most common Lego brick used: red 2×8 stud brick.
  • The LEGO® Silverado took 18 builders more than 2,000 hours to assemble.
  • Designed and assembled by Master Builders in the Lego Group’s Model Shop in Enfield, Conn.
