LEGO Star Wars build event for Triple Force Friday in New Zealand

The celebration marking 20 years of LEGO Star Wars continued in New Zealand, with LCP Ryan “Brickman” McNaught leading a mosaic build event.

To celebrate 20 years of LEGO Star Wars on Triple Force Friday and throughout the weekend, Westfield, St Lukes Shopping Mall in New Zealand hosted a special build event. LEGO Certified Professional Ryan “Brickman” McNaught led a mosaic build project that saw attendees add bricks to a massive image depicting Rey and Kylo Ren as they appear in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

It took 165,888 LEGO bricks to make up the image, with two young fans in fancy dress as Kylo Ren and Rey adding the final section, Star Wars New Zealand and Rebelscum report.
Stormtroopers were on hand to oversee the proceedings, which also gave visitors the chance to build a make and take model of a Star Destroyer, Millennium Falcon or TIE Fighter. A new Kylo Ren statue, featuring his new helmet look from the upcoming film, was also on display.

Brick Fanatics attends the UK’s only Triple Force Friday midnight opening at Forbidden Planet Megastore.
