In a world filled with mostly useless, annoying toys that don’t challenge the mind, LEGO is an exception.

The Danish company has been making toys out of interlocking building blocks since 1949, and they cater to different skill sets based on their models.

If you played with LEGO when you were growing up, their new model might take you back into their store. It is a 1:12 scale model of the Mercedes-Benz Unimog, and it’s their latest addition to their TECHNIC line.

This model has 2000 pieces and is fully functional. It has a working winch, optional snowplough, suspension, differentials, a four-wheel drive system and even working pistons!

The TECHNIC Unimog was built with full co-operation from Mercedes-Benz, which wanted to celebrate this work trucks 60th anniversary.

Look for it in at your local LEGO store soon. Based on European prices, it should cost you $255, which is a bargain for something that will make you feel like a kid again.
