While fans around the world enjoyed special LEGO Star Wars deals for May the Fourth and the release of 75244 Tantive IV (review), Australia had something extra special going on. LEGO Star Wars Design Diretor Jens Kronvold Frederiksen and LEGO Certified Professional Ryan “Brickman” McNaught led a special build activity to build a giant X-wing Starfighter.
Rebelscum has shared a detailed report on all of the goings-on at the event that took place at the Westfield Chatswood shopping centre in New South Wales. It took the entire day on May 4 to complete the 16 times upscaled X-wing model, which used 83,442 pieces and arrived in a massive LEGO box. The following day saw it remain on display for fans to enjoy throughout May 5.
In addition to the big collaborative build, a make and take opportunity saw children building more pocket-sized versions of the iconic rebel ship, while trivia contests and build competitions rounded out the activity.
