I am still waiting for that blue police box to take me on a star trek to a galaxy far, far away. Until then I will have to content myself with fantasy and sci-fi adventures from books, movies, and TV shows.

Lego recently set a Guinness World Record for largest display by using 36,440 “Star Wars” minifigures in a 20 foot x 20 foot (6 meter x 6 meter) display in the shape of a stormtrooper helmet. Previous record attempts had the figures in straight lines. The previous record was 35,210 “Star Wars” minifigures.

The display took 12 builders 38 hours to create. It was part of a Star Wars Celebration in Chicago. Before the attempt, the company had to check its inventory to ensure that they had enough stormtrooper minifigure parts! It took 16 hours to assemble the minifigures before they were shipped to Chicago for arrangement in the display.

Lego has been working with the Star Wars franchise since The Phantom Menace came out in 1999. Lego introduced 13 Lego “Star Wars” sets at the American International Toy Fair in New York that year; it was Lego’s first licensed property. The Lego “Star Wars” line now includes more than 700 different sets and 1000 minifigures and the collaboration includes 5 video games and several TV and web series. Star Wars is also mentioned in the Lego movies.

Lego is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its “Star Wars” line with new sets based on the movies and animated series. The stormtrooper minifigures used to break the record will be available in one of the commemorative sets, the Imperial Dropship.
