Witness the firepower of this 500,000-brick LEGO Death Star

by  in Comic News Comment

Following in the footsteps of LEGO parks in Malaysia and California, Legoland Windsor on Monday unveiled one of the biggest models ever created for the U.K. theme park: a 500,000 brick Star Wars Death Star.

Measuring 2.4 meters wide by 3 meters high and weighing more than 1,895 pounds, the battle station took a team of 15 model makers three  months to build. Installation required another full day, with the lighting and animation — X-wings and TIE Fighters fly around the Death Star — will take six more weeks to complete.

You can watch a time-lapse video of the installation below.

The massive battle station will serve as the centerpiece of the 651,086-piece Star Wars Miniland Model Display, which will be showcased when Legoland Windsor opens for the season on March 11.
