    So i had some spare time at work this week and i came up with a new lego project to build. i kept looking at the banner on the top of the TW website and wondered if i could re-recreate it in lego. some of the master builders at work have made letters out of lego, but they have done it in stellar detail. i think what i made turned out pretty good, but its nowhere close to what the builders at work can do.

    anyway... here is what i came up with.

    i was thinking about making the "TW Pumpkin", but that would have been too hard for me (and we dont have many orange bricks), but i may add the toyota logo at the left. there are alot of curves in the logo so it will be very challenging.

    i have no idea where i am going to put this thing. my wife said i could mount it to the wall in our office... i need a room just for lego building :)

    thanks for looking :)

    That is sweet. I'd definitely take one if your gonna make them. Something like the words Tacoma and the Toyota emblem would definitely sell....
