Legoland in California to get Star Wars display
 
 

I thought I had a cool job, but these guys that get to spend their days playing with Lego really have it good. This gigantic Millennium Falcon is being built for gobs of bricks for the Star Wars area at the Legoland theme park.

I wonder how much loot the park had to cough up to get George Lucas to sign off on this. The entire ship is made from Lego bricks. I bet these guys don’t have to start fights to get the last set of wheels, look at all of those bins of bricks.

The Star Wars area will have 2,000 Lego models that take visitors through the scenes from the film saga. The new exhibit will launch on March 31 and will be part of the Miniland park. Apparently, the creations in the exhibit have required 1.5 million bricks. Life-size models of characters from the films have been made too.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
