With the landing of the LEGO® Star Wars™ X-Wing™ on the longest glacier of the Alps, LEGO also celebrates a very special partnership: The license agreement signed over 20 years ago between the LEGO® Group and Lucasfilm started an intergalactic success story which has connected people across generations and countries ever since.
The LEGO® Star Wars X-Wing built entirely from 2.5 million LEGO® pieces by LEGO® Certified Professional Georg Schmitt, along with a 10-person team, spans an impressive 10 x 10 metres. The building of the LEGO® Star Wars™ X-Wing™ took over 1,500 hours of work.
- On October 4th, “The Force Friday”, a life-sized LEGO® Star Wars™ X-Wing™ built from 2.5 million LEGO® pieces landed 3,454 metres above sea level on the Jungfraujoch – “Top of Europe”.

- As of 4 October, ten new LEGO® Star Wars™ sets from the film “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” are available worldwide.
