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.
