The image, which is 20 feet tall and 20 feet wide, is composed of 36,440 mini-figures and it took 12 people 38 hours to create and install. The Danish building-block company just announced the largest display ever of Lego "Star Wars" minifigures.

Tantive IV LEGO Star Wars construction toy features a radar that doubles as a carry handle, 2 detachable escape pods with space for a minifigure inside, opening cargo hold and removable cargo box, opening 2-minifigure cockpit, rotating and elevating stud-shooting turrets on top and 2 spring-loaded shooters underneath.

The Creature Stall, which will be located in the Galaxy's Edge marketplace, will sell a variety of familiar Star Wars critters, both plush and plastic. "With Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy and Star Wars: Episode IX director JJ Abrams appearing on stage, you can count on plenty of surprises and special guests to keep your imagination buzzing for the rest of Celebration!"

As we reported the other day, the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge merchandise that is being previewed at this weekend's Star Wars Celebration convention is being changed every day, in an effort to showcase the many different shops the new lands will feature. It's 20 years since Lego launched the initial Star Wars sets alongside Episode 1: The Phantom Menace. Some of the original Star Wars cast members might make an appearance as well, with Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian) at the top of the list.

We'll get more Ahoska Tano on Sunday. R2-D2 is there too, though I wouldn't count him as a minifigure, and it seems you can swap Leia's skirt for pants if you'd prefer.
