In New York's Times Square, Lego revealed a new jaw-dropping (and record-breaking) creation. The life-size X-Wing fighter is now the largest Lego model in the world.

An unveiling event took place last week, when Lego showed the gathered crowd the impressive model. It is a 1:1 replica of a "real" X-Wing, measuring 11 feet tall and 43 feet long, with a 44-foot wingspan. It even has R2-D2's head poking out.

The pictures below show the X-Wing in its hanger prior to the reveal. Take a good look, because this is one Lego set you'll never find in stores.
