cnet has the story on this giant death star replica that will debut at Legoland this March.

We’ve seen some amazing “Star Wars”-related Lego work created by passionate fans with a talent for manipulating little plastic bricks. There was a pitch-perfect re-creation of the “The Force Awakens” trailer done in Lego. We ogled a 6-foot-long Imperial Star Destroyer. There’s also something to be said for going straight to the Lego source and seeing what the experts at Legoland California have in store for us.

Legoland has unveiled a sneak peek at the newest model joining its popular “Star Wars” Miniland display. Professional Lego builders have embraced the dark side with a honking huge 1,900-pound (862-kilogram) Death Star model fashioned from over half a million bricks. The Death Star is 13 feet (3.9 meters) high and 8 feet (2.4 meters) wide. It’s the largest model in the themed Miniland exhibit.

Check out more photos of the build here.
