LEGO Star Wars Miniland Death Star Unveiled at LEGOLAND California

Yesterday, LEGOLAND California opened their doors to the public for to see the new LEGO Star Wars Miniland Death Star model which was created with more than 500,000 LEGO bricks. It is the largest LEGO model in the Miniland standing at 13 feet high, 8 feet wide and weighing more than 1,900 pounds. Check out the video below of Fox 5 giving you a sneak peek of the Death Star.

The unveiling of the Death Star kicks off the weekend early with the LEGO Star Wars Days event being held on March 7 and 8. Local builders will be on hand to display lots of cool MOCs. I’ve seen some early shots of the builds and they look awesome so far. I’ll be at LEGOLAND on Sunday, March 8 to cover Star Wars Days so stay tuned for lots of pictures of the event.


LEGOLAND California Star Wars Miniland Expansion and Star Wars Days

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.
