Guinness World Records recognized it as the "Largest image built with interlocking plastic bricks", made by Emilio Georgiou-Matson (UK) within an event organised by Lego and DK to promote the launch of the LEGO Star Wars Brickmaster Book at Shoreditch Town Hall, London, UK.
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.
The World's Largest Lego Mosaic, designed by artist Zoltan Simon, consisted of a tableau of the most iconic characters from the Star Wars films made entirely out of interlocking bricks.
Organized to commemorate DK's bestselling Star Wars Lego Visual Dictionary (a New York Times bestseller for 60 weeks and counting!) and the new LEGO Brickmaster Star Wars, The Largest Lego Mosaic In The World, designed by artist Zoltan Simon, consisted of a tableau of the most iconic characters from the Star Wars films made entirely out of interlocking bricks.
The event also raised nearly CAD $1000 for charity and all the bricks used in the construction were donated to a London-based children's charity called Kids' Company that provide practical and educational help to inner city children.
