Fans love recreating iconic pop culture vehicles, scenes and characters with the expansive brick set. “Star Wars'” Bespin, the “Twin Peaks” cast, Marvel’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” the Power Rangers’ HQ — all of these sets have been imagined and built by fans. It’s still likely that none of them took as long to construct as this LEGO set did.
Kevin J. Walter of Germany has constructed a LEGO Klingon Bird of Prey that is comprised of 25,000 individual bricks. The design was originally conceived of digitally way back in 2010. Since then, Walter has worked towards making the “Star Trek” starship a reality and, six years later, he finished work on it.
The ship is super detailed. When you get in close, you can really start to see how 25,000 bricks were used in its creation.
Walter originally wanted to make the wings movable between attack, flight and landing configurations, but the wings ended up being fragile and heavy and, therefore, stationary. Still, he did manage to recreate a scene from “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home” using his Bird of Prey.
You can see even more shots of the finished and in-progress Klingon Bird of Prey over on Kevin J. Walter’s Flickr page.
