The life-size replica of the X-Wing Figher that debuted last month in New York’s Times Square has arrived at Legoland California for its June 14 debut at the park.  The model took 32 Master Model Builders nearly 17,000 hours to build, and used nearly 5 million LEGO bricks to build the model.  The model of the X-Wing weighs almost 46,000 pounds and is 11 feet tall by 43 feet long.

The grand unveiling will take place on June 14 with members from the 501st Legion inside a special hangar built for the X-Wing in the Imagination Zone.  After the ceremony pass holders will have exclusive viewing access of the X-Wing from 10AM – 2PM.  The model will be available for viewing through the end of 2013.
