On March 29, 2012, LEGOLAND California is set for the highly anticipated LEGO Star Wars Miniland expansion. There will be scenes built in 1:20 scale from 1.5 million bricks for all six Star Wars movies as well as the Clone Wars animated series.
One of the new models that will be displayed is the Opee Sea Killer. The video below shows Gary McIntire, the Master Model Builder at LEGOLAND California setting up the model for the new expansion.
Another model that was created for the expansion is the Sandcrawler which is for Episode IV where the Jawas are selling the droids. Also seen in this video are 3 foot tall minifigures of Luke Skywalker, Wicket, Boba Fett, Princess Leia, Anakin Skywalker, and Darth Maul just to name a few.

I’m hoping to be there on March 31 and our friends at From Bricks To Bothans will be there as well. I’m looking forward to taking a lot of pictures and will be posting them to my Flickr as soon as I get back. It’ll be my first Star Wars Days so I’m definitely excited. Hope to see you there!
