Unveiling in Times Square — Click to enlarge

A certain Jedi Master, species unknown, once said, “size matters not.” But he obviously wasn’t referring to the latest Lego creation from the Lego group. Taking the title of the world’s largest Lego model is a 1:1 scale replica of an X-Wing, complete with R2 unit, made up of 5,335,200 Lego bricks and taking 32 Lego master builders 17,336 hours (around four months) to complete.

As any Rebel engineer worth their salt will know, the full-size replica stands 3.35 m tall and 13.1 m long with a wingspan of 13.44 m. Its weight of almost 20,865 kg means the model will be less than easy to transport, even if you have unlearned what you have learned.

Constructed in Kladno, Czech Republic, to celebrate the upcoming premiere of the Lego Star Wars-based three-part animated series, The Yoda Chronicles, on Cartoon Network, the Lego X-Wing is currently on display in New York’s Times Square. It will be moved to Legoland California Resort in the coming months, where it will remain grounded for the remainder of the year.

Hate to break your heart; but, this is NOT AVAILABLE as a kit for consumers.
