  The Guinness world record for the tallest structure built with interlocking plastic bricks was 30.52 m (100 ft, 1 in) high and was constructed by the Stichting Limmen Ludiek (Netherlands) foundation on in Limmen, Netherlands.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the largest image built with interlocking plastic bricks; it measures 112 m² (1205.55 ft²) and was made by Emilio Georgiou-Matson (UK).

  To celebrate the upcoming premiere of The Yoda Chronicles on Cartoon Network on Wednesday, May 29 at 8:00 p.m. (ET, PT), the massive replica took 32 master builders, five million LEGO bricks and over 17,000 hours to complete.

  The world's largest LEGO model weighs nearly 20,865 kilograms, stands 3.35 meters tall and 13.1 meters long, with a wingspan of 13.44 meters.

  The Largest LEGO Model in the world will "take off" for a summer landing at LEGOLAND® California Resort where it will be installed through the remainder of the year.

  "Just as kids love to test and hone their LEGO building skills and imaginative storytelling, our LEGO Master Builders are always testing their creative skills to top their last larger-than-life sized creations," said Michael McNally, Brand Relations Director for LEGO Systems.

  "The size and structural complexity of a freestanding model 42 times the size of one our retail sets was a challenge they could not resist."
