World's Largest LEGO Millenium Falcon Built In Melbourne

See, Star Wars day (May the fourth) isn't all about terrible Facebook status updates and tweets. It can occasionally be about something actually cool. Like a massive Millenium Falcon built out of LEGO.

That's essentially what happened in Melbourne over the weekend. Father and son LEGO Master Builder duo, Dan and Chris Steininger flew in to create two separate LEGO sculptures: a pair of Tie Fighters alongside a massive Millenium Falcon. The Tie Fighters were created from 80,000 LEGO bricks. That's a lot of LEGO.

Apparently the Millenium Falcon was a bit of a unique creation.

"This model was ground-breaking for LEGO because of the way it stretches out wide. Normally when we build big LEGO builds they stand tall," explained Dan Steininger, "so this was both an exciting and challenging experience for Chris and myself."

It actually looks fantastic. If you want to see it in person head to Westfield Southland. It'll be on display until May 10.


    What a piece of junk

      She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts.

        It's the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs.

          About the Kessel Run: everyone says "but parsecs are a unit of distance".

          And I say "Yes. But distance equivalent to 3.26 light years. So it's still relevant that Han says they did it in only 39.12 light years where as other nerf herders have taken 45 light years."

          Maybe, Han's also stating that they found a shortcut due to his mad skillz of drifting lazily to the left and skirted pretty damned close to some celestial masses or dodged through an impenetrable asteroid field surrounding Kessel...

          Huh? Huh?? No? Okay...

            Hmm yeah, it works. I still like the explanation that he was just bullsh*tting the local hicks.

        Yep. Dated her...

      You came in that thing? You're braver than I thought.

        Yep. Dated her too...

      But can she make the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs ??

      You know, that ship's saved my life quite a few times. She's the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy!

    Must be something wrong with the looks pixelated on my screen.

    Looks more like Minecraft than Lego.
