LEGO Celebrates Star Wars Day in Style

If you aren’t from the NYC area, and haven’t seen the information yet online, The LEGO Group recently built a rideable LEGO Brick Millennium Falcon pedicab, which is currently traveling around Bryant Park. This Star Wars themed pedicab took over 20,000 bricks to build, and the entire process from design to completion took almost 400 hours! Here are more details on how you can become involved.
