'That's No Moon. That's a Space Station... Made Out of Legos'

Published: March 4, 2015 at 10:43 PM

Legoland California this morning unveiled its newest addition to the park — the Death Star, which joins several other iconic settings and scenes in the Star Wars section of the park's Miniland.

Darth Vader and his Stormtroopers were on hand for the unveiling this morning.

In addition to the Death Star model, which is surrounded by Lego models of TIE fighters and X-Wings in battle, the adjacent display includes several scenes from Star Wars that were set on the Death Star, recreated in Legos, including the trench run attack.

Visitors can try building some of their favorite Star Wars spaceships with available Lego bricks, too. At 13 feet tall and eight feet wide, and made of more than half a million bricks, the Death Star is the largest addition to the park's Star Wars Miniland.
