Do you have a LEGO fan in your midst? How about a Star Wars fan? Or, if you’re lucky like me, perhaps you have a child with an obsession with LEGO AND Star Wars. This is the ultimate experience for them and undoubtedly would win you some brownie points, if you took them along for the fun and games.

“This May the 4th weekend, Jedi and LEGO® fans alike are invited to come together and celebrate the
world of LEGO® Star WarsTM with a building event like no other.
US LEGO Master Builder, Dan Steininger, will land in Sydney to join Australia’s own LEGO Certified
Professional, Ryan McNaught, in an attempt to build the world’s largest model of Darth Vader™ from
LEGO bricks.

  1. We're all excited that your family is able to attend such an exciting event! I hope you take photos for a future blog post!!

  2. I agree with Jeneta. Looking forward to seeing photos. It is a little to far for us to visit Sydney (over 1000km).

  3. I like C-3PO. He's kind of like a nerdy robot that wants to appear more human but remains a nerdy robot!

    Have a fantastic time and May the Fourth be with you :)

  4. if I lived in Sydney and could go, I'd be the one with the very excited 38 year old boy ! Yes, still a Lego AND Star wars fan after all these years. It looks like a great event, I shall pass the details on to that older fan who does live in Sydney.

  5. I just saw about the prize for commenting, please don't enter me :)

  6. I took my boys to the Brick Show last weekend we saw Ryan building and gluing Dark Leader Darth Vader and the Jedi Grand Master himself, Yoda...are they about a 1m high ?

  7. Ahhhhh memories!!!!! My kids are 25 and 22 years old and loved lego as youngsters. I've still got their collection for when they give me grandkids. Have a wonderful time with your family.
