The 4th of May, also known as Star Wars Day, is a very special day for fans, and over at Legoland Malaysia, there are always annual celebrations held for the occasion. For the year of 2018, there’s certainly no shortage of activities, but the main highlight remains the Lego Star Wars Speed Build Challenge, where competitive brick building groups (2-4 pax) can put their speed building skills to the test with the X-Wing Starfighter.
As the name suggests, speed is the name of the game, and the fastest builder among all contenders will be duly awarded with the limited-edition Lego Star Wars 75192 Millennium Falcon set worth S$1,189, that also bears the autograph of original designer Hans Burkhard Schlömer.
For other Star Wars fans who aren’t into the craft of speed building, there are plenty of related festivities to go around from April 21 to May 13, 2018, as per the following:
Witness The Largest Imperial March (April 28, 29 only)
A yearly tradition, and one that enthusiasts should be very familiar with. The streets of LEGOLAND is set to welcome 100 costumed fan group members, with meet-and-greet sessions taking place at the selected areas of the park, namely The Beginning, LEGO Technic, Lego Star Wars Miniland.
Be One With The Intergalactic Parade
Showcase your love for Star Wars by dressing up as your favourite character, and march alongside other costumed counterparts when they perform during the parade over the weekends!

One of the best parts of the franchise is its grand space battles. The largest Lego Star Wars Miniland Model Display sees some of the most epic showdowns reimaged in the form of over 1.5 million bricks.
