This life-size X-Wing model comes in at a whopping 44-foot wingspan and 45,980 pounds; it took 32 “master builders” (which apparently is a real job) 17,336 hours and 5,335,200 Lego bricks to build this beast. It was built by the Lego Model Shop in the Czech Republic and was on show in New York City late last month. To top it off, this model has been officially confirmed to be the biggest Lego model ever.
