Guy builds intricate Star Trek Klingon warship using 25,000 LEGO bricks


(From io9) It was a project eight years in the making—well, technically nine now. One LEGO fan has built his own Star Trek Klingon Bird of Prey using about 25,000 blocks, based on a virtual blueprint he started all the way back in 2008.

Kevin J. Walter from Germany recently unveiled his completed Bird of Prey, inspired by the famous Klingon warship from Star Trek. It’s based on a virtual design he created between 2008 and 2010. While that conceptual version used over 250,000 blocks, the real thing required about one-tenth of that. It’s about 71 cm. long, 42 cm. wide, and 86 cm. wide, including the stand.

Walter said his next goal is to finish his build of Barad-dûr (you know, the Eye of Sauron thing), which will be about 150,000 pieces by the time it’s done. He’s been working on that one for over six years, and hopes to finish it in time for Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers’ 15th anniversary in 2017.
