In celebration of the latest Star Wars film releasing this month and May the 4th LEGO Master Builders are challenging themselves to create something they’ve never done before— building an iconic Star Wars ship made entirely out of LEGO bricks that you can actually ride!
The jaw-dropping model is hitting the streets of NYC on May the 4th to give fans a one-of-a-kind visual in celebration of Star Wars Day and Solo: A Star Wars Story releasing just a few weeks later.
Fun Facts on the model:
- It took LEGO Master Builders 396 hours to design and build
- The model contains 20,300 LEGO bricks
- It measures 9 feet long and 6 feet wide
Lego is also encouraging fans to snap and post photos of the massive model using the hashtags #LEGOStarWars and #RoarForChange to drive charitable donations. It’s a global challenge from Lucasfilm and Star Wars: Force for Change that supports UNICEF’s lifesaving work for children around the world. Between May 3 – 25, 2018, Star Wars: Force for Chance will donation $1 to UNICEF for each public post, like, or share on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter that includes #RoarForChange.
