What’s more fun than LEGO? Nothing.

Nothing is more fun than LEGO. But cars are pretty great, too, so Volkswagen decided to combine the two and make LEGO brick diorama featuring the Atlas and the microbus.

The LEGO VWs will make its public debut at the Chicago Auto Show, which starts on the 11th and runs until February 20.

According to the VW, the display is made up of more than 20,000 bricks and is a visual metaphor for its design evolution.

The display is 2 x 3.5-feet large and is undoubtedly the first time the 2018 Atlas — set to hit showrooms this spring — has ever been committed to LEGO form, and as we all know, there is no higher honor.
