LEGO Star Wars in Times Square


This is the most fun I have ever had in Times Square. My LEGO obsessed son had an absolute blast. Kev and I are original vintage Star Wars geeks, and we actually met because of my Darth Vader costume... So this was a fun day for our family! (All the many photos below can be clicked on to see them bigger.)

The LEGO creations on display were life size. That includes the X-Wing Fighter, which you could actually sit in! There were also actors in costume interacting with the huge crowd.

There was a free Make-and-Take X-Wing fighter to build:

And there were Master Builder workshops, where the kids got to build anything they wanted while listening to building tips from Master Builders. Mikro signed up for one, and built a space ship of his own design. I wish we had been allowed to keep it, but we made sure to get a bunch of photos so Mikro can hopefully acquire the bricks he needs to build it again at home.

The X-Wing Fighter is the biggest LEGO structure ever built!
