Lego structures.

Has anybody here ever built any really tall Lego structures?
If you have do you have any pictures or do you have any links to tall Lego
structures?
I did contact the Lego Group and ask them about the world record for the
tallest structure and if there were any rules and regs. with regard to
building them and going for the world record but I got 2 auto replies and
that was it.
Many thanks,
Gaz.

I did happen to see something about a small town (probably in Europe somewhere) that set the world record for the tallest LEGO structure ever built. Although I don't remeber the height they reached, it was very tall and required the use of a tall crane to assembly the upper sections. It was definitely a group project with probably hundreds of participants.
Have you tried a web search? This will probably be mentioned somewhere.

The Ultimate Lego Book (1999) says the tallest tower was built in 1982 in Talinn, Estonia. It was 82 feet (24.91 meter) tall. It was built by 6000 fans.

For those who are interested ...here are the rules for LEGO tower records: 1.The tower must comprise only standard bricks. 2.The structure should measure 2 square meters (approximately 6 sq ft) at the base and the bricks must be added individually. 3.The tower need not be solid throughout, but it should be strong enough to be totally stable when free-standing. 4.There are no restrictions on the shape, the number of bricks used (although this should also be given), the time taken in construction (although a maximum of 24 hr is advised) or the number of people involved.
A new record attempt is announced for this year in LEGOLAND Carlsbad, California, USA (see:

Below are some more record claims. I am planning to publish a list of LEGO records in a new record list at
