Birth of a LEGO Brick - Billund Factory Tour

Post by chump »

Recently Ambassadors were invited to a press conference in Billund (no expenses paid, just an invite). Two of them were able to make it and one of them made a video. So if you've ever wanted to see the machines that birth the bricks, here you go.

Nothing earth shattering and limited appeal due to it being mainly pressing and conveyor belts, but I'm sure people will be interested to watch it.

Here's photos from his Flickr account which is probably more interesting.

And a 21 page report that he wrote:

He took a lot of nice photos of Bilund and of the Lego Museum in Ohio.
