BILLUND, Denmark--This weekend, it's "Star Wars" days at Legoland in California, as well as at the flagship park here in this western Denmark town, adjacent to Lego Systems' world headquarters.
At each of these parks, a new miniland has opened featuring scenes from many of the "Star Wars" films. All told, the models, which were done in 1:20 scale, took 1.5 million Lego bricks, and there are more than 2,000 total models from "Star Wars" locales like Tatooine, Hoth, Endor, Naboo, Geonosis, Kashyyk, Mustafar, and Christophsis. Each of the six films, plus "Clone Wars" is represented.
This is the Millennium Falcon from the Tatooine section, representing the original "Star Wars" film.
