To celebrate Star Wars Day, a group of Australians assembled Sunday to help build the world’s largest Millennium Falcon made from LEGO.
Constructed out of about 250,000 bricks, and measuring nearly 16 feet across, the iconic spaceship was created at the Westfield Southland mall in Melbourne under the supervision of father-and-son LEGO master builders Dan Steininger and Chris Steininger.
CNET reports visitors were told to choose a side, the Empire or the Rebels, with the former setting to work on a pair of TIE Fighters (each standing about 6.5 fight tall and comprised of 80,000 bricks) and the latter the Millennium Falcon.
“Usually models the size of the Millennium Falcon can take more than a week to build and it was thanks to the Aussie fans that we were able to build a model of this size in such a short time,” Dan Steininger said. “This model was ground-breaking for LEGO because of the way it stretches out wide. Normally when we build big LEGO builds they stand tall, so this was both an exciting and challenging experience for Chris and myself.”
