The largest LEGO sculpture in the world was unveiled May 23, and—good news for nerds—it’s Star Wars–themed: The design is a 1:1 scale replica of the same X-Wing Starfighter that’s on toy-store shelves—just 42 times larger. Clocking in at 45,980 pounds, the massive structure uses more than 5 million bricks and took 32 builders more than four months to create. The structure was built in conjunction with the debut of the new animated miniseries The Yoda Chronicles on Cartoon Network, and it'll be on view through Saturday, May 26.
