LEGOLAND Malaysia

LEGOLAND Malaysia

Master Builders at LEGOLAND Park in Malaysia have constructed a weapon of mass destruction………out of over 750,000 plastic bricks. The Lego Death Star is an impressive model built with 10,000 special glow-in-the-dark tiles to set off a real sinister ambiance. The Death Star measures in a stunning 2.6 meters (8.5 feet) in diameter and weighs nearly 8000 kilograms (17,637 pounds). The model team consisted of 8 model builders and 2 fabricators, plus another team from LEGOLAND California. It took the teams almost 5 months to complete this monstrous model. You might be discouraged since for many of us Malaysia is a long way to travel. Not to fear, as it will be rotated around each of the LEGOLAND parks for all to see and enjoy. The pictures were taken from lovezer0’s Flickr page. Cue the Imperial March music time now!
