Legoland California Resort has unveiled an impressive Lego Stegosaurus model to welcome its new themed land of Dino Valley.

The Stegosaurus model is fully animated and features more than 119,000 Lego elements.

The Lego piece took time to build, lots of time: Lego’s master model builders spent a staggering 495 hours cultivating the dinosaur.

The model is 11ft long and weighs 672 pounds. 

The Lego Stegosaurus will be situated at Dino Valley’s Explorer River Quest ride.

Dino Valley will be home to three rides: A Duplo Little Dino Trail, river expedition Explorer River Quest and Coastersaurus roller coaster.
