“The Tyrant is over 56 inches (1.4m) long and weighs approximately 70 lbs (32kg) with a full load (the interior adds a lot of weight),” explains the author. “That makes it about 20 inches longer — and quite a few times heavier — than the classic LEGO UCS version.“

Truly outstanding use of LEGO stop-motion.
"An animated reconstruction of highlights of the USA's first match of the tournament, in which the favourites beat France 98-71. The American team of multimillionaires includes Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, and (with his trademark white headband) LeBron James, while the French side features fellow NBA stars Kevin Seraphin, Nicolas Batum, Boris Diaw and the goggles-wearing Tony Parker"
While it doesn't work (as a jet engine) it is an impressive feat of lego magic.
