OMG OMG OMG! Star Wars and Lego? YES, PLEASE!
The Force will be making its way to Legoland® Malaysia Resort this September as a brand new LEGO® Star Wars™ Miniland Model Display in conjunction with the Resort’s second anniversary. Featuring 2,000 LEGO models based on the popular film series that have been recreated on a scale of 1:20 using more than 1.5 million bricks, LEGO® Star Wars™ Miniland, a fully air-conditioned indoor attraction, is the first standalone complex of its kind in Asia.
Housed in a uniquely shaped standalone octagon building, the LEGO® Star Wars™ Miniland features a recreation of seven of the most famous scenes — six from Star Wars™ films and one from the hit animated series: Star Wars: The Clone Wars™.
The model display will allow guests to experience a specially crafted design pre-screening area for a LEGO Star Wars™ movie, followed by a chronological walk through the Star Wars timeline featuring the planets Christophsis, Endor, Geonosis, Hoth, Kashyyyk, Mustafar, Naboo, and Tatooine before having a special photo opportunity at the Hall of Fame starring main characters Chewbacca, C-3PO, Darth Maul, Darth Vader, Princess Leia, R2-D2, Yoda and much more.
The LEGO models are presented on raised platforms and stand 85cm high. There will also be life-sized LEGO models of C-3PO, Darth Vader and R2-D2 built with more than 80,000 LEGO bricks to greet fans and visitors as they make their way into the model display.
Apart from the Lego models, the display will also feature authentic Star Wars™ sounds, actions and lighting effects to create a realistic and enjoyable experience for the whole family. All the models for this project were built in various locations around the world including Malaysia, Germany and the Czech Republic.
The whole month of September will see various LEGO Star Wars™ activities lined up to commemorate the anniversary celebrations. These activities include free entry for children dressed as their favourite Star Wars™ characters and the promotion will take place from 6th – 30th September 2014.
Pass holders will also enjoy a special preview period from 1st – 5th September before the attraction is opened to public. For more information on how you can be part of this exciting display, visit Legoland‘s social sites: Twitter & Instagram.
