Exactly, how many LEGO blocks would somebody need to support a model that weighs 30 pounds?

  • 30 grams? I think pretty much anything bigger than a Lego flower stem would handle that...

1 Answer 1


1 . According to experimental results, a single Lego 2x2 brick can support about 950 pounds before failing.

This does not take the shape of the model into account - if you have a sharp point going down into the brick, it's probably going to fail a bit more quickly!
