Legoland California Resort Presents World's Largest Lego Model

An epic story requires an epically sized Lego model, it seems.  After debuting in Times Square in New York City, the world's largest Lego model has landed at the Legoland California Resort.

The model is a 1:1 replica of the Lego Star Wars X-wing Starfighter, and it stands 11 feet tall, is 43 feet long, has a wingspan of 44 feet and weighs 46,000 pounds.

Those are some impressive dimensions!  The X-wing Starfighter was built in honor of Lego Star Wars The Yoda Chronicles, a "new action-packed story on Cartoon Network featuring Yoda, the Jedi Master."

The model will be on display at the park to all guests through the end of the year.

The timing of the arrival of the model is no coincidence, as this weekend is the park's annual Lego Star Wars Days.  The event includes activities such as a Droid Hunt with the 501st Legion, a Star Wars themed costume contest, Jedi Trivia, a Lego building competition, and plenty more fun.
