Watch a Lego Death Star build in super-smooth stop motion

Learn how to build a Death Star Lego from the bottom up. Even Darth Vader would be impressed.

Building the mammoth Death Star Lego set is the kind of project that can take weeks to finish, especially for beginner brick enthusiasts.

Amsterdam-based Lego fan Bart van Dijk didn't just build his Death Star Lego set, he also filmed the process. The result is an impressive stop-motion animation that shows every one of the 4,016 Lego pieces fitting seamlessly into place.

The video shows the animated build accompanied by special effects sounds, Star Wars dialog and '80s-inspired music by Chill Carrier.

You'll also see minifigs of Darth Vader, Stormtroopers, Jedi Masters, Princess Leia, R2-D2, C-3PO and Chewbacca in action.

Previously, van Dijk has created build videos for Lego sets of Disney castles. In the Star Wars universe, he's built a Rebel Combat Frigate, a TIE fighter and the Millennium Falcon.
