Amazing Star Wars LEGO diorama made from 1/4 million bricks

Sprawled out inside the Trafford Centre at Legoland's Discovery Centre in Manchester, U.K., this impressive 250,000-piece diorama re-creates familiar locations and scenes from 1999's Star Wars Episode 1.  Designed into the multi-terraced exhibit is the Tatooine podrace arena with Jabba in the grandstands, the domed palaces and flowing waterfalls of Naboo, Anakin's yellow N-1 starfighter and Jar Jar leading a Gungan army against a legion of battle droids. 

More than 2,000 MiniFigs were set amid the landscapes, with interactive stations for the kiddies (and adults) to play with.  Beware of marauding Trade Federation agents!  This awesome Star Wars LEGO attraction is open until June 1, 2013.
