The largest replica of the LEGO® Millennium Falcon at LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort is ready to take flight!

[Iskandar Puteri, 3 May, 2016] Over the past three days, Dan and Chris Steininger, the father-son Master Builder duo from The LEGO® Group who together with help from LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort guests, have been steadily building the largest replica of the LEGO® Millennium Falcon using more than 200,000 LEGO® bricks. Now, after nearly 30 hours, the last brick has been placed on the iconic spaceship.

“This has been such a wonderful opportunity for us to come here to LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort to work on something so spectacular. We’ve had tremendous fun the past few days, and it’s always amazing to see the Millennium Falcon come together, especially with help from the guests,” said Dan Steininger, Master Model Builder, from The LEGO group.

“Working on the Millennium Falcon is always so much fun and it’s awesome to see how excited everyone is by it. It’s one of my favourites to work on, and this experience is made all the more significant because I get to share it with my Dad! It’s been an honour for my Dad and I to be able to share our love of LEGO and Star Wars™ with the LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort guests,” shared Chris Steininger, Master Model Builder, The LEGO group, said.

LEGO Star Wars™ Days at LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort will have activities happening for the entire month of May – visitors can view the LEGO Millennium Falcon, alongside the two replicas of the LEGO TIE Fighters which would be built by the Resort’s own Model Builders on the weekend of May 7 and 8. Other activities that weekend will include LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort’s very own Imperial March with more than 90 costumers from the 501st Legion in various characters from the series. A prize giving ceremony will be held on May 8 for the My Own Creation (MOC) competition that LEGO Star Wars™ fans from Hong Kong, Taiwan, Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia participated in. The judging panel will also feature an esteemed guest from the production team who worked on the Star Wars™ series!

 “LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort was very honoured to have both Dan and Chris here working on the Millennium Falcon. It’s such a treat to have not one, but two, Master Builders with us, and a father-son duo at that! They’ve given all our guests, and the Star Wars™ fans, so much to experience as we’ve seen them at work. LEGO Star Wars™ Days creates a lot of excitement and we’re happy to have presented the biggest one in the region this year, thanks to the collaboration with The LEGO Group, and we hope to keep bringing bigger and better ones to you in the years ahead!” Mark Germyn, General Manager of LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort said.

Through the month of May, Star Wars™ fans can look forward to build and take home a mini Millennium Falcon each weekend – Park guests are encouraged to come early as stocks are limited! To further encourage parents who are keen to show their kids what their favourite series is all about, all children dressed up in a Star Wars™ costume will get free entry throughout the month as well. The Park exclusive commemorative LEGO Duplo brick for LEGO Star Wars™ Days will be given to families that complete the Star Wars™ Activity Trail, essentially completing all the LEGO Star Wars™ Days activities in the Park. There are limited sets of the commemorative bricks, and the bricks will be given out on a first-come-first-served basis.
