Legoland to house world's biggest iconic Star Wars super weapon


NUSAJAYA - Fans of the sci-fi movie series Star Wars will be in for a treat with the world's biggest Death Star model to be displayed at the Legoland Malaysia theme park.


Made from 723,150 pieces of Lego bricks, the 6m tall model will be installed by the end of the next month.The model was designed to resemble the iconic moon-sized space station and super weapon that was first introduced in George Lucas' Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.


The theme park's model shop manager Stefan Bentivoglio, who headed a team of eight model builders for the project, said the Lego Miniland Death Star took 200 hours to design and will take another 1,800 hours to build and assemble.


"It was designed by our Legoland California counterparts while the building and the assembling of the sphere is done entirely in Malaysia," he told The Star during an exclusive behind-the-scenes preview of the project here yesterday.


He added that the sphere weighed about a tonne when completed with the installation of 135kg of stainless steel frames.


"The model will even shoot laser beams accompanied with sound effects to make the Death Star come to life from the silver screen.


"Hopefully, the models will be able to convert those who do not know much about Star Wars into fans," Bentivoglio said.


He said that the 90 per cent completed model which is shaped like a sphere is about 2.3m in diameter and would light up at night with the help of about 10,000 glow-in-the dark Lego tiles to stay as true as possible to the one in the movie series.


Four different colours of Lego bricks - white, dark grey, light grey and luminous tiles were used to build the Death Star model and would be completed and displayed to visitors by July 26 for a limited period at the Nusajaya theme park.


After that, it would be dissembled and displayed at other Legoland theme parks in Denmark, Germany, Britain, California and Florida.


"The model will be placed at a dedicated area of the theme park's mini land and there will also be interactive display as well as smaller replicas of popular characters from the movie franchise," he said.


Other models and displays include Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader having a lightsabre duel, an X-wing fighter, the Emperor's throne room, Garbage Masher and Trench Run - all made from Lego.

LEGOLAND Water Park - Coming Soon! credit to cheekiemonkies


The next phase in the LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort project will see splashing fun being added in the form of the LEGOLAND Water Park. Billed as the LARGEST LEGOLAND Water Park in the world, the interactive and fully LEGO-themed Water Park will offer more than 20 unique slides, as well as over 70 LEGO models among its many attractions and is specially catered to 2-12 year old children.


And speaking about attractions, just take a look at the number of water rides and attractions in store.


Some of the Water Park's highlights include the hugely popular Build-A-Raft River and Joker Soaker.


The Build-A-Raft River allows kids to customize their own raft with soft LEGO bricks before floating down a lazy river - I can already foresee this being a huge hit with the monkies. The Joker Soaker is a fun interactive platform in the wade poll where kids can play with water cannons as a LEGO jester model 'tells' jokes while 350 gallons of water cascade down on them.


The LEGO Slide Racers allow up to SIX people to race down a slide and see who earns the bragging rights at the bottom. Given my weight, I should be a shoo-in for first place I reckon.


Another unique feature of the Water Park is that it is the only one of all the LEGOLAND Water Parks in the world to have 2 entrances - one being the main entrance and the other being connected to the existing LEGOLAND Malaysia theme park. What this means is that it can be enjoyed separately or in combination with the Theme Park
