Geeks and LEGO go together like Pizza and Beer. Or, like Han Solo and Luke Skywalker. Speaking of Luke Skywalker, a LEGO replica of his favorite fighter, the X-Wing , was recently unveiled during a ceremony in New York’s Times Square.
This amazing feet of engineering is the world’s largest LEGO model and is a 1:1 representation of the X-Wing. The massive replica took 32 master builders, five million LEGO bricks and over 17,000 hours to complete.
The model weighs nearly 46,000 pounds, stands 11 feet tall and 43 feet long, with a wingspan of 44 feet. This was done, in part, to help Cartoon Network kick off their new TV series The Yoda Chronicles on May 29th.
The model itself will be heading to the LEGOLAND California Resort where it will be installed through the remainder of the year. Check out more pics of this awesome LEGO X-Wing after the break.
