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.
