The Force is Strong in NYC, LEGO Star Wars X-Wing Starfighter Takes Over Times Square
Remember Zack the Lego Maniac? It was a commercial about a kid who created the wildest toys out of Lego building blocks. Well, Zack’s all grown up and doing big things.
Well, not really Zack (since he’s allegedly just a fictional person created by evil 80s advertisers who like to play tricks on children), but Lego’s build Masters designed the biggest Lego toy the world has ever seen.
The Lego Star Wars X-Wing Starfighter debuted in Times Square, NYC. It was a 1:1 replica of an ACTUAL Star Wars X-Wing (you know from that alternate reality we all live in when we curse George Lucas’ name for ruining the franchise he created).
The Lego model had a 44-feet wingspan, standing at 11-feet tall and 43-feet long.
Pretty awesome indeed. Now, if Lego can get it to actually work and fly me to the Dagobah System, I’ll be the first person to bid that “ish” up if it goes on the auction block.
