    No, the "LEGO LEGO" in the title is no redundancy in this case. It's a 1:42 scale model of the LEGO X-Wing set, made out of LEGO. Self-referential, yo. Meta.

    Perspective.

    5.3 million bricks, 21 tons, 13 meters (43 feet) in length. It took 32 workers at the Lego Model Workshop in Kladno, Czech Republic 4 months to build. Currently on display in New York's Times Square, after which it will be shown in Los Angeles for a while, then and finally settle in Legoland California.

    I think it's neat.

    Now they need to make a 1:1 model of the "real" thing.

    How is it not collapsing under the weight? Or did they glue it?

    Edit: Upon using my ability to read, I discovered that it has a metal frame.
