Lego used an out-of-this-world franchise to beat a Guinness World Record. The Danish building-block company just announced the largest display ever of Lego “Star Wars” minifigures.
The final tally of minifigures was 36,440, easily breaking the previous record of 35,210. The entire display was roughly 20 feet tall by 20 feet wide (6 meters by 6 meters), arranged in the shape of an iconic Stormtrooper helmet. The display took 12 people about 38 hours to create and was adjudicated by Guinness World Records representative Christina Flounders Conlon on Thursday (April 11).
You can see the display for yourself at “Star Wars” Celebration in Chicago this weekend.
“Two decades’ worth of products, content and collaboration between two of the world’s most beloved brands will be showcased at Booth No. 1616 at McCormick Place in downtown Chicago, giving fans of all ages the chance to relive their fandom and build excitement for what’s to come this fall,” The Lego Group said in a statement.
