Help Build World’s Largest Darth Vader Model

LEGO Star Wars

SYDNEY IT’S TIME TO CHOOSE YOUR SIDE THIS MAY THE 4TH

LEGO® Master Builder Calls On Sydney-siders To Help Build World’s Largest Darth Vader™ Model from LEGO Bricks

This May the 4th weekend, Jedi and LEGO® fans alike are invited to come together and celebrate the world of LEGO® Star Wars™ with a building event like no other.

US LEGO Master Builder, Dan Steininger, will land in Sydney to join Australia’s own LEGO Certified Professional, Ryan McNaught, in an attempt to build the world’s largest model of Darth Vader™ from LEGO bricks.

Taking place at Westfield Penrith from Saturday May 3rd to Sunday May 4th, Dan and Ryan will be calling on members of the public to help them build the huge model of Darth Vader. Set to scale at close to 4m
in height and using more than a quarter of a million LEGO bricks, the model will be one of the biggest ever seen in Australia.

But the fun doesn’t stop there, as fans will be invited to choose their side, like Anakin, as Dan and Ryan also build a giant model of the Jedi Grand Master himself, Yoda, made from LEGO bricks, standing over
2m in height.

In addition, there will be exciting new sets from the extensive LEGO Star Wars range on display. Over the two days, there will also be Star Wars trivia and LEGO speed building challenges offering plenty of
prizes for everyone.

So come dressed as your favourite Star Wars character for the chance to win a LEGO Star Wars goodie bag, or just bring the power of the Force with you to join in on all the fun… and May the 4th be with you!

WHAT: LEGO Star Wars Building Challenge
WHY: To celebrate Star Wars day (May the 4th) and the launch of the 2014 LEGO Star Wars collection, LEGO fans of all ages have the chance to assist in the building of a giant model of the Dark Leader Darth Vader and the Jedi Grand Master himself, Yoda.

It appears that the US Amazon site is starting to ship more items to Australian customers.

The process is still a bit of a hit and miss, with no easy way to check whether an item can be shipped to Australia but there are savings to be had. The LEGO 10221 Super Star Destroyer set featured here is selling for $699 at the Australian online LEGO store, but you can get it delivered from Amazon.com for around $530 Australian dollars.

2014 LEGO Star Wars Set Details Leak Online

LEGO Star Wars LOGO

The sneak peaks at 2014 sets just keep coming. This time it is the 2014 Star Wars lineup, via a user on the Eurobricks LEGO forum.

The set images that have been released so far show a lot of prequel related sets, and not a lot from the original trilogy. Hopefully that will change when the full lineup is released.

It also seems that LEGO is moving away from flick-fire missiles, with most of these sets featuring a new spring-loaded shooter.

Be sure to check out all of the images and set names below.
