May the fourth be with you. Or as they say, happy Star Wars day.
Fans and non-fans alike are all excited for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” to hit cinemas this year. Before that, though, people down under have decided to build the world’s largest Millennium Falcon using Lego.
Using 250,000 Lego bricks, Dan and Chris Steininger constructed a Millennium Falcon just in time for May 4. The result is a five-meter-wide model.
The father and son duo are considered as “Lego Master Builders.” They were flown in from the United States in order to construct the iconic Han Solo vehicle.
“It’s so iconic, so loved,” Dan told Mashable Australia. “Lego and Star Wars together makes this just a huge deal.”
So what are their favorite Lego constructions? Chris would choose a Buzz Lightyear model, which they built for the first “Toy Story” sequel. Dan, on the other hand, picked Darth Vader.
“Aussies love their Lego,” Dan said.
“It doesn’t matter what country you go to, the kids are the most creative people on the face of the planet. There is no wrong way to play with Lego.”
Watch the Steiningers create their galactic masterpiece.
