Lucky Duck gets inside the X Wing, the largest Lego ever built.
Times Square has a very cool exhibit to promote The Yoda Chronicles, airing on Cartoon Network, May 29th, 8/7c. Under the big lights, next to the famous bleachers, sits a life sized X Wing, made out of over 5 and a half million Lego pieces. It took three months to build and arrived in New York via many, many trucks. You can grab a free “Boarding Block” and use it to sit in the X Wing cockpit and get a free photo! And when you leave, you can build a free X Wing out of Legos to take home.
Here are the pictures we got to take home for free.

Here is a clip sharing the specs and giving a close up look at this AWESOME display.
Characters all over the place
It was fun to check out the Lego figures of our favorite characters!
A free swag bag, too!
They gave out amazing gifts, including a Yoda Chronicles comic book. I don’t want this bag for myself, so if you want mine, let me know. Although, if Ruark wants it, he gets first grabs, given I went to his Hughes the Force movie screening and spent time with him at the Star Wars exhibit at Toys R Us in Times Square.
Here is the video from that day.
Here’s a look at what’s in the bag.
