The X-Wing starfighter from Star Wars has come to life as the world’s largest Lego model, except that it can’t fly, move or shoot laser beams. The 45,000-pound model was assembled by a team of 32 people over the course of 17,000 man-hours in Kladno, Czech Republic.

The X-Wing comprises 5.3 million Lego bricks, some 2 million more than the previous title-holder, a robot at Minnesota’s Mall of America. At 43 feet from front to back, it’s actually two feet longer than than the fictional X-Wing that Luke Skywalker flew into battle in the original Star Wars movie.

The model will remain in Times Square through Saturday before being packed up and shipped to Legoland in Carlsbad, California.
