KUALA LUMPUR, May 5 — Legoland Malaysia Resort can now proudly announce that the Force is strong with them as they have managed to build the largest ever Lego Millennium Falcon.
The replica was constructed by father-son Lego Master Builder Dan and Chris Steininger with help from visitors to the park. Using more than 200,000 Lego bricks, to create the Falcon that is 4.8m long and 3.6m wide, the construction took nearly 30 hours and was spread over three days.
“This has been such a wonderful opportunity for us to come here to Legoland Malaysia Resort to work on something so spectacular. We’ve had tremendous fun the past few days, and it’s always amazing to see the Millennium Falcon come together, especially with help from the guests,” said Dan.
“Working on the Millennium Falcon is always so much fun and it’s awesome to see how excited everyone is by it. It’s one of my favourites to work on, and this experience is made all the more significant because I get to share it with my Dad! It’s been an honour for my Dad and I to be able to share our love of Lego and Star Wars with the Legoland Malaysia Resort guests,” added his son Chris.
Legoland Malaysia Resort has also planned activities for the entire month of May in lieu of Lego Star Wars Day and visitors will also be able to see two replica TIE Fighters made of Lego — which will be built by the resort’s own Model Builders this coming weekend.
Other activities planned for this coming weekend include an Imperial March with more than 90 costumers from the 501st Legion in various characters from the series.
“Lego Star Wars Day creates a lot of excitement and we’re happy to have presented the biggest one in the region this year, thanks to the collaboration with The Lego Group, and we hope to keep bringing bigger and better ones to you in the years ahead!” shared General Manager of Legoland D Malaysia Resort Mark Germyn.
Visitors to the park can also look forward to building and taking home their own mini Lego Millennium Falcon, but do note that there are limited sets available and this building activity will only take place during the weekends.
Children who show up at the park dressed up in a Star Wars costume will be allowed free entry throughout the month as well. There are also park exclusive commemorative Lego Duplo brick sets that will be given to families that complete the Star Wars Activity Trail.
You won’t have to go to a galaxy far, far away to enjoy all things Star Wars related, just gather the family and head on down to Legoland Malaysia Resort!
