LEGO Unveils Giant X-Wing Starfighter in Times Square

A dream came true today as I sat in the cockpit of a life-sized X-Wing starfighter built entirely of LEGOs. To celebrate the release of Cartoon Network’s The Yoda Chronicles, the LEGO gods made public the largest LEGO structure ever built with over 5 million LEGO bricks. The iconic starfighter is 11 feet tall, 43 feet long, and 44 feet wide, weighing about 46,000 pounds. Over the course of four months, it took a 32-person team to complete the construction in Kladno, Czech Republic.

The Yoda Chronicles premieres Wednesday, May 29, at 8PM/7PM Central on Cartoon Network with “The Phantom Clone,” the first installment of a three-part series.
