The build up to the first episode of The Yoda Chronicles continues! As part of the build up LEGO have unveiled a life-size model of the recent UCS X-Wing Starfighter.
The build took LEGO builders in the Czech Republic four months to complete and a staggering 5,335,200 bricks! To support the LEGO a steel frame was built and as a result the X-wing weighs 20 tonnes! Measuring 13.1 metres long with a wingspan of 13.4 metres the life-size X-Wing is the largest LEGO model to ever be assembled!
The life-size starfighter was shipped from Europe, on a voyage that took 2 months to complete, in 34 parts which were assembled over night before being unveiled to the public today!
The model will be on display at Times Square for the next three days before being transported to LEGOLAND California where it will remain for the rest of the year!
