Lego lands a life-size X-Wing on Swiss Mountain

It’s been 20 years since Lego and Star Wars have been working together (thankfully), and to celebrate Lego built a life-size X-Wing fighter and placed it on the “Hoth planet”, I mean on a swiss mountain.

“‘Do or do not – there is no try’ says Jedi Master Yoda to Luke Skywalker in ‘Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back’. Then, using the Force, he lifts an X-Wing out of the swamp – thus making what was impossible for Luke, possible.

LEGO took this scene to heart and now presents, on the occasion of ‘The Force Friday’ on October 4th, 2019, on the Jungfraujoch in Switzerland, a true-to-original LEGO reproduction of the unmistakable LEGO Star Wars X-Wing starfighter from the Skywalker saga. True to the motto ‘The Force is in your hands,’, LEGO wants to show that even things which seem too challenging can be mastered, landing the large model on the highest point on which a LEGO Star Wars X-Wing has ever landed – at least in this galaxy.”
