Other than perhaps Global Geek News itself which has been going strong for over a decade now, I can’t say I have had any projects that I have worked on for an extended amount of time. Some projects have lasted me months or a few years but they (like GGN) has never really had an end goal and just kept going until I stopped. Well, there is one guy that had an end goal in mind and even though it took him nine years to complete it, he is finally finished this incredible LEGO Klingon Bird of Prey that took around 25,000 LEGO bricks!
Back in 2008, German Star Trek fan Kevin J. Walter began his quest to create a LEGO Klingon Bird of Prey with a simple blueprint which estimated the number of LEGO bricks to complete the build to be around 250,000 LEGO pieces. Well, fast forward nine years and this LEGO Klingon Bird of Prey turned out to only need about a tenth that many (probably a good thing since a quarter of a million LEGO bricks would cost a small fortune). This LEGO Klingon Bird of Prey uses 25,000 LEGO bricks (approximately) and measures 71 cm. long, 42 cm. wide, and 86 cm. wide, including the stand.
The final version which was made as a tribute to the 50th anniversary of Star Trek actually only took about a year and a half to make (still a long time!) but it uses a wide variety of parts including Bilbo Baggins’ front door for the guns. Talk about creative!
There are a ton of more pictures of this impressive LEGO Klingon Bird of Prey below including the original blueprint that this LEGO build was based on.
