This X-Wing Fighter is the largest LEGO model ever created. It is amazing. Astounding! Feel free to nerdgasm, jump around the room, bounce off the walls, and then return to read on.

LEGO built this 1:1 scale model of the X-Wing fighter from 5,335,200 bricks. It’s as big as the real thing, and can hold Rebel pilots – even Porkins. This X-Wing reproduces the official $60 LEGO 9493 X-Wing Fighter.

That one is a mere 560-pieces and a few inches long. Yawn. This one has over five million pieces and it’s 11-feet-tall, 43-feet-long, with a 44-foot wingspan and weighs nearly 46,000 pounds. Just like the real X-Wing. Oh, and it took over 17,000 person-hours to build it.

LEGO created it to help celebrate the launch of a three-part LEGO Star Wars animated series, called The Yoda Chronicles, set to premiere on the Cartoon Network this May 29th.

The engines even light up and produce a roar. Best of all you can see it for yourself if you are in Times Square, where it is currently on display for the next couple of days before it heads out to LEGOLAND California.
