The galaxy's biggest Lego Millennium Falcon was built for Star Wars Day

May the Fourth be with you.

IN HONOUR OF today being the unofficial Star Wars day, May the fourth, a father and son team have built what they’re claiming is the largest ever Millennium Falcon out of Lego.

The replica contains over 200,000 Lego bricks and measures 4.8-by-3.6 metres.

Dan and Christopher Steineger built the replica of Han Solo’s famous cargo ship over 50 hours at Legoland Malaysia.

The pair are recognised as ‘master builders’ by Lego with members of the public invited into the workshop over the weekend to watch them at work.
