Since we moved to LA it has been Miles’ dream to go visit LEGOLAND and now that he knows the Death Star is there he wants to go even more. I kept making promises to him that if he did this or did that I would find a way for us to go well I finally found a way. I have partnered with LEGOLAND to share with all of you all about the creation of The Death Star!
The Death Star spans 8-feet wide, 13-feet high and weighs more than 1900 pounds. Featuring a planet-destroying super laser, the massive LEGO model is made out of more than 500,000 LEGO bricks. LEGOLAND helps bring the creativity and imagination of youngsters to life.
Featuring a planet-destroying super laser, the massive LEGO model is made out of more than 500,000 LEGO bricks and includes a display of the famous trench run scene where Luke Skywalker maneuvered his X-wing fighter through the combat zone to destroy the Death Star. Adjacent to the LEGO Death Star, guests are invited to use their imaginations to construct their own LEGO starships at building stations while X-Wings, Tie Fighters and Y-Wings circle overhead.
The new LEGO model display is LEGOLAND California Resort’s latest major addition in LEGO Star Wars™ Miniland which opened in 2011 and expanded with the addition of the LEGO Star Wars™ Miniland Gallery in 2012. The unveiling of the new LEGO Star Wars™ Miniland Death Star Model Display kicked-off the fan favorite, LEGO Star Wars™ Days event.
We hope you will go visit the Death Star soon, we know we will be!
