You may not be a Lego master model builder, but if you're in San Francisco this weekend, you could help one make a giant Santa Yoda.

Starting Friday, the public is invited to visit San Francisco's Union Square and lend a hand as Lego's master model builders take thousands of the iconic bricks and shape them into a 12-foot-tall, 10-foot-wide Santa Yoda.

The event, which is partly a fundraiser for the Bay Area Boys & Girls Club, is also partly about promoting the Monday launch of the new Santa Yoda Web site (which will have no content until Monday), which will be used to donate a million Lego toys to the U.S. Marine Corps' Toys for Tots program. The site will also be giving away a series of prizes including a 2-foot-tall Santa Yoda. Lego said it will donate a toy to the Marines' program for every e-greeting shared on the Santa Yoda site.

Those interested in taking part in the festivities should head to Union Square between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. starting this Friday, and continuing through Sunday.
