World’s Largest Lego Sculpture: A Life-Size X-Wing Fighter (Photos)
Thousands of people gathered in New York City’s Times Square on May 22 to watch the unveiling of the world’s largest LEGO model, a 1:1 replica of the LEGO Star Wars X-wing Starfighter.
It took 32 model builders, 5.3 million LEGO bricks and over 17,000 hours to complete the life-size X-wing fighter.
The X-wing fighter stands at 11 feet tall, with a wingspan of 43 feet and weighing nearly 46,000 pounds.
The engines have lights and speakers, and so they light up and cycle through a pre-programmed series of launch and battle sounds.
LEGO even has the droid, the cute R2-D2 built for the project.
The X-wing is strong enough for a person to sit in the cockpit or perch atop one of the engines and the designers use computer to plan an intricate steel infrastructure that will ensure the X-wing won’t shatter in an earthquake.
After its time in New York City, the X-wing will travel to Legoland in California.
The life-size X-wing fighter is really awesome and I think LEGO made X-wing to promote this coming Star Wars movie.
