Universal City, CA — The colorful world of The Simpsons family has finally made it to Hollywood! Universal Studios Hollywood that is. The cartoon TV family has been on the air for 26 seasons already with a 27th in the works, making this theme park experience long over due. But Hollywood wasn’t the first stop for The Simpsons, which had their Springfield USA back in 2013 and both resorts opened The Simpsons Ride in 2008.
LEGOLAND California Resort constructed a new technological terror for their Star Wars Miniland earlier this month and they should indeed be too proud of it. The planet shaped Death Star display is made out of over a half million LEGO bricks, standing 13-feet high, 8-feet wide, and weighs over 1,900 pounds. That’s a lot of LEGO!

And those troop transports have racked up quite a bit of mileage themselves.
