LEGO VIDIYO Prototypes & Development Models

Sticking with LEGO® VIDIYO, it’s time to take a look at a number of the prototypes and development models used to create the new wave of VIDIYO sets.

The build took a team of LEGO Technic Designers and expert builders from LEGO Kladno, over 13,000 hours to develop and construct....
