Lego Death Star – level 3

25-08-2023 15:00

In a Legoland in England, people constructed one of the biggest-ever Lego Star Wars models  – it consisted of 500,000 Lego bricks. The model recreates the Empire’s ultimate super weapon: the Death Star.

Weighing in at a hefty 860 kilograms, the model took 15 model-makers 3 months to build and three days to install. It is sure the huge 2.4-metre wide, 3-metre high creation will attract Star Wars super fans in droves. They will even be able to trigger sounds and light effects to bring the scene to life.

The model depicts the dramatic scene of the rebel alliance attack on the moon-sized space station in ‘Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope’.

Difficult words: hefty (large and heavy), huge (very big), drove (a large number of people), trigger verb (to turn on), depict (to show), alliance (groups which fight together).

You can watch the video news lower on this page.

What kind of sound and light effects can be activated with the Lego Star Wars model?
