Representatives from both the Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire were out in full force this morning as LEGO virtually transformed New York City’s Times Square into Yavin IV to unveil the world’s largest LEGO sculpture. Consisting of 5,335,200 LEGO bricks and weighing in at a svelte 45,980 pounds, the full-scale LEGO X-wing Starfighter arrived with much fanfare. Built in the LEGO model shop in Kladno, Czech Republic, the 1:1 replica of LEGO kit 9493 took 32 builders 17,336 hours to construct. Its true 1:1 scale means it measures 11 feet in height, 43 feet in length and has an impressive wingspan of 44 feet. In addition, the cockpit can fit an actual ‘pilot’ (serving as a photo-op during the three day event).

WATCH: ABC Teases ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Television Series

'Hulk Fire' video from ABCIt’s just seven seconds long, but for whatever reason, ABC may have just provided us with our first look at the hotly anticipated Hulk television series that Guillermo del Toro and Marvel television have been working on for years Joss Whedon’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ from Marvel Television. It’s just seven seconds long, but it now looks like the series, which was hopefully offered as a 2013-2014 candidate by ABC’s Paul Lee at the television industry’s upfronts last year is soon headed to the small screen via a mystery writer. The Upfronts is an annual event in which networks traditionally invite advertisers and dazzle them with celebrities and sneak peeks at upcoming fall programming — ABC’s 2013 Upfronts will take place on May 14.
