Star Wars and LEGO go together better than intergalactic peanut butter and chocolate. Case in point, this impressive 7-foot long model of the Mon Calamari flagship from Return of the Jedi — complete with integrated lighting!
Jesus Diaz from Gizmodo reports:
The stunning LEGO model — created by Thomas Benedikt — was created to scale from the official LEGO Star Destroyer, which is an impressive 3,104-piece beast on its own. According to Thomas, the ship was almost impossible to recreate in LEGO because of the difficulty of its surfaces: There are no right angles at all. After considering many building techniques, he decided to use studs joined by hinges, with transparent yellow studs to let the light from the Star Cruiser‘s interior shine through.
