I don’t care what your age bracket is, you’re never too old for Lego. Unless you step on a four-pin block edge in the middle of the night. Lego can be used to build anything given enough time and blocks, and right now, that’s just what one group of fans has accomplished with their combined love for the Danish blocks and Star Wars.

It took 5,335,200 pieces of the little plastic construction blocks to create the X-Wing Fighter according to Gizmodo. From there, the constructors had to brace the model with a metal skeleton on the inside. Other facts from that report include:

Weighs 45,979.61 pounds (including bricks and steel infrastructure)
Height: 11 feet / 3.35 meters
Length: 43 feet / 13.1 meters
Wingspan: 44 feet / 13.44 meters
32 builders spent 17,336 hours (about 4 months) to construct

5.3 Million Legos? That’s the same amount of plastic that goes into Deborah Patta’s face every month.
