LEGO Buy More on Chuck Video

July 29, 2011

My friend and fellow SandLUG member Kevin Smith is a big Chuck (the TV Show) fan. He is such a big fan that he created a LEGO version of the Buy More and brought it to Comic Con last year to show the creators of the show.

Not only did he get it signed, but he also created a second one that he later gave to the producers. Now this is where it gets really cool, the model he gave them can be seen in the Chuck Panel for Comic Con video!

You don’t have to watch very long if you are not a Chuck fan, but you can clearly see the model in the background and you can see one of the Nerd Herd cars on the desk.

Congrats Kevin! 🙂

This one seems to have come out of nowhere. I hadn’t heard anything about this model and apparently its already starting to show up in LEGO Stores around the US.

There is very little information at this time. According to Toysnbricks.com it retails for $149.99 USD.

From the pictures, it definitely looks like a winner. My wallet has already been stretched thin this year, but I just might have to get my hands on this one. And thanks for Tazmandvl1 for sharing these pictures.
