This is certainly the weekend for monster Lego builds. First there was the Battlestar Galactica behemoth, and now we have this 30,000-brick Imperial hanger from The Return of the Jedi.
Simply massive! And the number of minifigs standing at attention for the Emperor and Darth Vader is nothing short of amazing too.
Assembled by Floarida teacher Jay Hoff over the course of six months, this 1.8m x 1.8m monstrosity cost an estimated $US2300 to complete. Not bad for a teacher’s salary, ol’ Hoff! The ambitious teacher-builder displayed the custom kit for Science Discovery Day at his school, where students were encouraged to create their own builds. Something tells me they left with a complex at the end of the day. [New York Daily News]
