LEGO Santa Yoda Base Model Revealed

LEGO Santa Yoda

CNET uploaded a picture of the base model that will be used for the LEGO Santa Yoda build happening this weekend. For those of you that never attended a build before, the way it works is that the general public helps build ‘superbricks’ which are 4x the size of regular 2×4 bricks. So each brick on the base model is rebuilt with a superbrick in the 12-foot model. The 12-foot model will be completed sometime around 6pm Sunday evening.
