Full-Size LEGO X-Wing Is the Largest Lego Model Ever Built

The impressive life-size model was unveiled in New York City’s Times Square and contains an astonishing 5,335,200 bricks, making it the largest Lego model ever made. The model, which was made to promote new animation series The Yoda Chronicles, towers above at a lofty 11ft (3.35m) and is 43ft (13.1m) in length.   It is 42 times the size of the original Lego toy it was based on and took 32 people four months to build. Unsurprisingly fans of the hit movie have been impressed by the creation     It was assembled by a team of 32 people over the course of 17,000 man-hours in Kladno, Czech Republic, on what one assumes was the world’s largest living-room floor. The X-Wing comprises 5.3 million Lego bricks, some 2 million more than the previous title-holder, a robot at Minnesota’s Mall of America. At 43 feet from front to back, it’s actually two…

New LEGO Star Wars Game Free Download but Compatibility Issues

I was super excited when my son (yes, my 6 year old) told me about LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles and when I looked it up to find out it was free in the Play store, I was excited. The LEGO Group has released more than a dozen Android titles already but their first tie-in game is LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles. This might give us our Star Wars fix with a break from Angry Birds. I was all about it!

Official Corellian Defender Lego set revealed

GrooveBricks have some new images of the upcoming Official Corellian Defender Lego set. We discussed the prototype back in September last year, were the creator needed 10k supporters to get Lego to make it. Apparently we are there now, and will hit the shelves some time this summer. The Defender-class light corvette was a specialized vessel built for the Jedi Order, which they used throughout the Cold War and subsequent Second Great Galactic War. It was heavily shielded, and was armed with two sets of dual laser cannons and a complement of missiles. This new Old Republic looks fantastic in my opinion! LEGO did a great job replicating the original Jedi Defender Cruiser from the Star Wars Old Republic universe. If you compare the original HERE to the LEGO version they pretty much look identical except for the fact that the LEGO version looks a bit chubby. This set includes a total of 927 pieces and it comes along with 4 Old Republic minifigs: Sith…

Daily life on Hoth, illustrated with Lego

One thing I love more than anything is bringing you cool Star Wars and SWTOR stuff. I also love Legos. Here I found an opportunity to merge both. Vesa Lehtimäki creates some amazing scenes with Legos and his “Daily life on Hoth” series is fantabulous! (I also love to make up my own words). He has a super awesome snow effect, brilliant scenes and fun stories to go along with most of the images. He also has many more images on his Flickr in locations other than Hoth but the snowy scenes are some of my favorite. It’s truly magical. Check out Lego on Hoth on Flickr for the full collection but here are some of my faves: Lego Snowtrooper Probe Droid Maintenance Squad “I’m telling you, it will blow!” “Nahh, it’ll be just fine.” Call of the Wild   Snowtrooper Ski Patrol They filled their days with long cross-country ski…
