“Do or do not – there is no try” says Jedi Master YodaTM to Luke Skywalker in “Star WarsTM: The Empire Strikes Back”. Then, using the Force, he lifts an X- WingTM out of the swamp – thus making what was impossible for Luke possible. LEGO® GmbH took this scene to heart and now presents, on the occasion of “The Force Friday”.
With the landing of the LEGO® Star WarsTM X-WingTM on the longest glacier of the SwissAlps, LEGO® GmbH also celebrates a very special partnership: The license agreement signed over 20 years ago between the LEGO® Group and Lucasfilm started an intergalactic success story which has connected people across generations and countries ever since.
The LEGO® Star WarsTM X-WingTM built entirely from 2.5 million LEGO® pieces by LEGO® Certified Professional Georg Schmitt, along with a 10-person team, spans an impressive 10 x 10 metres. The building of the LEGO® Star WarsTM X-WingTM took over 1,500 hours of work.
