Watch a life-size LEGO BB-8 get built in this timelapse


BB-8’s natural roundness doesn’t really lend itself for the bricky LEGO-verse, but the artists over at Bright Bricks managed to build a life-size LEGO version of everyone’s favorite droid from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” for the film’s premiere in the UK.

Bright Bricks uploaded the following timelapse video, which shows how the team managed to successfully build a full-size BB-8, with all the necessary curves:

models propose a more interesting building experience and can be own by
everybody like my mid-size one :
