For Star Wars fans around the globe, the building of the largest LEGO X-Wing Starfighter was a momentous achievement. Compiled of over 5.3 million LEGO pieces, this LEGO X-Wing Starfighter is just two feet shy of the Starfighter originally used in the Star Wars films.

The LEGO X-Wing Starfighter was built back at the Czech LEGO Model Shop and then flown out to Times Square in New York for its revealing in front of hundreds of Star Wards and LEGO fanatics. To get an idea of the vastness of the LEGO X-Wing Starfigther's size, it is roughly 42 times bigger than the toy LEGO version available in stores and weights up to 45,980 pounds. While the LEGO X-Wing Starfighter is breathtakingly beautiful to look at, what will the creators do with all the LEGO pieces?
