    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    I attended the opening ceremony at LEGOLAND to unveil the LEGO Star Wars Miniland Death Star Model Display.


    Check out my video with Master Builder Tim and photos.


    Death Star details
    8 feet wide, 13 feet high, weighting more than 1900 pounds and made out of more than 500,000 LEGO bricks, the LEGO Death Star model is the largest addition to LEGO Star Wars Miniland. The new model display features iconic film scenes made of LEGO bricks that were filmed inside the Galactic Empire's space station including the famous trench run scene where Luke Skywalker maneuvered his X-wing fighter through the combat zone to destroy the Death Star. Adjacent to the planet shaped LEGO model, you are invited to use your imagination to construct your own LEGO starship at 12 building stations.
