This is pretty badass.

I know I tend to look askance at superfans who go overboard with their hobbies.

Not this time.  This is made of pure awesome.  Prepare to die jealous.

This Incredible Full Scale Lego X-Wing Is the Largest Model In History

This is truly unbelievable: Lego has built a 1:1 scale model of the X-Wing fighter using an astounding 5,335,200 bricks! It's as big as the real thing, capable of fitting the real Luke Skywalker—and Porkins.

As you can see in these exclusive Gizmodo images and video, it reproduces the official $60 Lego 9493 X-Wing Fighter. But instead of being 560-pieces and a few inches long, this model uses more than five million pieces and it's 11-feet tall and 43 feet long, with a 44-foot wingspan. Just like the real X-Wing—and 42 times the size of the commercial Lego set....

...Here are all details about the model:

  • Contains 5,335,200 LEGO bricks

  • Weighs 45,979.61 pounds (including bricks and steel infrastructure)

  • Height: 11 feet / 3.35 meters

  • Length: 43 feet / 13.1 meters

  • Wingspan: 44 feet / 13.44 meters

  • 32 builders spent 17,336 hours (about 4 months) to construct

Check out the video in the link (I can't embed it):

Engines that light up and roar

There's only one thing different from the original model: the engines glow and roar like the X-Wing in the movies.
