Following in the footsteps of LEGO parks in Malaysia and California, Legoland Windsor on Monday unveiled one of the biggest models ever created for the U.K. theme park: a 500,000 brick Star Wars Death Star.

Measuring 2.4 meters wide by 3 meters high and weighing more than 1,895 pounds, the battle station took a team of 15 model makers three  months to build. Installation required another full day, with the lighting and animation — X-wings and TIE Fighters fly around the Death Star — will take six more weeks to complete.

You can watch a time-lapse video of the installation below.

The massive battle station will serve as the centerpiece of the 651,086-piece Star Wars Miniland Model Display, which will be showcased when Legoland Windsor opens for the season on March 11.

So, you’re wrong. She said 860kg. Last I checked kilograms don’t equal pounds. Also, in case you were wondering, it’s 1,892lbs.

Direct copy+paste from the article on this very page:
“Measuring 2.4 meters wide by 3 meters high and weighing more than 1,895 pounds, the battle station took a team of 15 model makers three months to build.”
Like the guy said… Pick a system of measurement and stick with it. Don’t mix and match.

“copy+paste,” “mix and match,”

“…on this very page:” “Like the guy said…”

Pick a method of punctuation/grammar and stick with it. Or you could all stop being petty, if you prefer.
