As most of you know by now, LEGO unveiled the world’s largest LEGO structure ever constructed this morning (May 23rd) in Times Square to celebrate the new Cartoon Network series, "The Yoda Chronicles." Many of you may also have seen a teaser set sent out to some websites for promotion, and you may have wondered, "Why hasn't Yodasnews posted about this?"
LEGO went all out to make sure we saw this magnificent beast from every angle. They had a forklift at the ready to take us up more than 40 feet in the air. We spent the next few hours going up and down to get shots from various vantage points to bring you the best images and videos as it sat nearly finished in the hangar, where it has resided since it was shipped here from Germany earlier in the month.

Outside of LEGO employees, we were two of only a handful of people to have seen the X-Wing before the public did. We were honored to be selected by LEGO for this opportunity and hope our readers enjoy this exclusive behind the scenes coverage. LEGO even went as far as to have the windows of this massive hangar covered so the planes and helicopter taking off would not get a glimpse of it. Before we left, we were handed a secret box (which you have now seen at Yakface.com and other sites), said to be one of the most limited sets and VIP items given out, being given this set in front of the x-wing with the crew that built it made it even better! There was also plenty of LEGO friends around the hangar waiting to head to Times Square.
We can’t thank LEGO enough for inviting us to see this as it was being built, and for providing us exclusive interaction with the entire team and the ability to get these great images and video!
If you have a chance, we highly recommend you head to Time Square in the next few days and see it in person for yourself. There will be photo ops and each day a certain amount of lucky fans will get to climb in the cockpit and take a picture inside it. And don’t forget to tune into Cartoon Network for the "The Yoda Chronicles," debuting on Wednesday, May 29 at 8 p.m.
