This is certainly the weekend for monster Lego builds. First there was the Battlestar Galactica behemoth early Saturday, and now this afternoon (by way of last Wednesday) we have this 30,000-brick Imperial hanger from The Return of the Jedi.
Simply massive! And the number of minifigs standing at attention for the Emperor and Darth Vader is nothing short of amazing too.
Assembled by Florida teacher Jay Hoff over the course of six months, this 6x6-foot monstrosity cost an estimated $2,300 to complete. Not bad for a teacher's salary, ol' Hoff! The ambitious teacher-builder displayed the custom kit for Science Discovery Day at his school, where students were encouraged to create their own builds. Something tells me they left with a complex at the end of the day. [New York Daily News]
