Stuff that Weighs More than Me: Life-Size X-Wing Fighter Made of Legos

LegoXwingOkay, take the coolness factor and turn it to “eleven” because this Lego(R) sculpture is “one louder”.  This super fun sculpture is an exact 42x scale model of the Lego kit you can buy at your local toy store.  What that means is that each 1×1 Lego “peg” of the toy is represented as a  42 by 42 square on the model.  This X-wing sculpture is the largest Lego structure ever constructed.

And this thing is HUGE!  Created from over 5 million individual Lego bricks, this sculpture required over 17,000 man-hours to complete.  Even with the help of 32 master builders that’s still over 4 months of building time.

The sculpture was unveiled yesterday in Times Square complete with light-up engines and speakers playing a pre-recorded loop of battle sounds..  From there it will travel back to Legoland  in Southern California.  Ready for the stats?  Here you go:

Height: 11 feet

Wingspan: 43 feet

Length: 42 feet

Number of bricks: 5.3 million

Weight: 46,000 lbs.

Conclusion: The Life-Sized X-Wing Fighter Made of Lego Bricks Weighs More Than Me!
