Life-sized Star Wars X-Wing fighter is the world's largest LEGO model
It took 32 master builders, over five million LEGO bricks, and more than 17,000 hours to put together a full-scale replica of a Star Wars X-Wing fighter, but the finished model was well worth it. It's currently the world's largest LEGO model and it's sitting in the middle of Times Square in New York City.

The 5,335,200-brick model is a one-to-one replica of LEGO Star Wars set No. 9493 — it's just 42 times the size and weighs 45, 979.61 pounds (this weight includes some supporting steel infrastructure, mind you). It is 11 feet high, 43 feet long, and has a wingspan of 44 feet.

It was at the Serra Twin in Milpitas, 35 years, to the day, that it premiered there. Neato.
