Alright, I’m pretty sure if you spend four months building something out of 5 million LEGOs, they should just give you the key to Legoland and make you CEO of the company. Here’s what it took to make a life size X-wing out of a nearly infinite amount of LEGOs.

- Contains 5,335,200 LEGO bricks
- Weighs 45,979.61 pounds (including bricks and steel infrastructure)
- Height: 11 feet / 3.35 meters
- Length: 43 feet / 13.1 meters
- Wingspan: 44 feet / 13.44 meters
- 32 builders spent 17,336 hours (about 4 months) to construct

Alright, next up, give me a life-size Death Star. Can someone really good at math tell how how many LEGOs you’d need for that? Are we talking quintillions here?

Well let’s see…..

Let’s assume the Death Star is made perfectly hollow for simplicity.

The first Death Star was 120km in diameter

This is a 60,000 meter radius

Surface area of a sphere = 4pi r^2.

So the surface area would be approximately

45,238,934,218 meters^2

The square lego block has dimensions .016m^2

So roughly…… 2.827 trillion blocks at the barest of minimums.

So I’d say 10 Trillion or so to do it pretty legit ðŸ™‚

26,000 lbs?? That’s 23 tons. That seems like an awful lot.
