Now that's a lot of Legos.

Reddit user jut754 recently posted photos of a towering Lego structure at Delaware's John Dickinson High School with the caption: "My school district just set the World Record for tallest Lego tower. 112 feet, 11.75 inches. First time it isn't held by the Lego company or a country."

The 11-story Lego tower -- constructed in part by students across the Red Clay Consolidated School District -- is made up of more than 500,000 toy bricks, according to The News Journal. It took months to complete the project.

A Guinness World Records representative told the outlet the award was for the tallest structure built with interlocking plastic bricks.

While Reddit users had a lot of questions about the specific cost engineering of the project, many commenters agreed that the project was still pretty cool.

"[W]aste of time and budget.. but I would have loved to be in one of those classes :)," wrote Reddit user JohnChamp.

Needless to say, we would have loved to have been part of such a cool project, too. (Just imagine the stories you could tell in college!)

Watch a representative from the Guinness World Records make the official declaration in the video above.
