Master Your Force to Build and join LEGO Master Builder, Chris Steininger, in creating the southern hemisphere’s biggest Death Star out of LEGO bricks to celebrate international Star Wars Day, May the 4th Be With You, and the 40th anniversary of the first ever Star Wars film.
One of only seven LEGO Master Builders in the world, Chris has flown over from the US to lead Aussie fans in the build of the infamous Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon. The Death Star will measure an impressive 2.4m in diameter and will use 210,000 bricks and weigh 545kg, making it the biggest Death Star model ever built from LEGO bricks in the southern hemisphere!
