Lego really likes making big motorcycles, castles, spaceships, and monsters. Many Lego set builds look pretty cool among normal minifigures, but sometimes I wonder how they’d look if they were real, and how big they’d look in real life.

Fortunately, it might be possible to figure out how big a Lego vehicle would be if it were real. We know that a Lego minifigure is 1.5 inches tall, and the average human as six feet tall. So we could probably use basic algebra to figure this out. Like, 1.5 over 6=[set size] over *x.*

Let’s use this set as an example:

The official set description says that Benny’s spaceship is 20 inches long. So, plugging it into our earlier equation, that makes 1.5 over 6=20 over *x.* (Gee, I sure wish these boards would let me write out algebraic equations.)

Doing the math, we find that Benny’s spaceship would be 80 feet long in real life. Nice.

It’s probably worth noting that this formula doesn’t work for some sets, such as the Destiny’s Bounty from Ninjago, or the Fortrex from Nexo Knights. Those sets are much smaller representations of the vehicles that we see in the shows, so by applying these mathematics to the sets wouldn’t tell us how big the vehicles are in the shows.

But, even with that in mind, it could still be fun to determine how big this or that set would be in real life. So you can use this topic to have fun with that idea. I’m gonna proceed to do a few more myself:

The Stealth Hunter would be 30 feet tall in real life.

The Sphinx from Pharaoh’s Quest would be 40 feet tall.

The Monkey King Warrior Mech would be 60 feet tall.

The Galactic Enforcer would be 76 feet long.

Gee, this is fun…
