from June 17th to 23rd.
Weighing in at more than 3 metric tons and comprising of 1.5 million bricks, this full-scale version of 75218 X-Wing Starfighter

This isn't the first time LEGO have upscaled an X-Wing set, with the most recent occurence taking place in Australia for the May The 4th Be With You
festivies, and in 2013 when a version of the (now retired) 9493 X-Wing Starfighter
was rolled out at New York's Times Square to mark the launch of the Yoda Chronicles series on TV.
