23-Ton, 5.3-Million-Brick X-Wing

25 posts in this topic

This 23-Ton, 5.3-Million-Brick X-Wing Is the Biggest Lego Model Ever

The newest addition to the grand list of Coolest Things Ever is being unveiled in New York today: the Lego X-Wing, the largest Lego model ever built.

The model of the classic Star Wars fighter being unveiled in Times Square has a wingspan of 44 feet and comes complete with R2-D2 and a full range of sound effects. It’s a super-duper-sized version of Star Wars Lego starfighter set #9493 and was made with 5,335,200 Lego bricks. That, according to Lego, makes it the largest model ever built, eclipsing the Lego robot at the Mall of America by some 2 million bricks. This replica of the Rebel Alliance dogfighter is 42 times the size of the Lego version we’ve all built and a bit bigger than a real X-Wing. (Yes, yes, we know they’re not real. Just go with it.) The X-Wing Luke Skywalker and his fellow rebels flew was about 41 feet long, 2 feet shorter than this Lego masterpiece.

The fact that she's mute would more than make up for it! :)

I don't know, the purple ones are for Primary Characters only. Mace Windu, Anikin Skywalker (The second), and other characters with a backstory/book of their own.
