Life-Size LEGO X-Wing is the Biggest LEGO Model Ever

By Will Smith

LEGO has built its largest model ever, a 1:1 scale model of an X-wing fighter.

This weekend, LEGO has placed their largest LEGO model ever in Times Square--a 1:1 scale ratio of an X-wing fighter. It contains 5 MILLION bricks, assembled around a supporting steel frame and was shipped from the Czech Republic to New York in 32 separate pieces. To give you an idea of the scale size-up, each individual LEGO stud on the X-wing is a 42 x 42 normal studs across.

Both The Brothers Brick and Gizmodo have great writeups about their trips to see the X-wing in the hangar where it was assembled. If you're in New York, you should head down to Times Square this weekend, so you can hop in the cockpit and get your picture taken inside this unique piece of history.
