Smashing An $800 LEGO Star Destroyer In Ultra Slo-Mo

May 4, 2015

To celebrate Star Wars Day (I love celebrating by breaking things) this is a video from WIRED of an $800, 16-hour build LEGO Star Destroyer nose-diving into the ground at 1,000 frames per second. I like how they point out all the Star Wars minifigs that go flying, I feel like that was a nice touch. What did you do for Star Wars Day? My roommate and I grilled a tauntaun and watched the original trilogy. I think later we're gonna paint two PVC pipes to look like lightsabers and beat the shit out of each other in the parking garage.

Keep going for the video, then get out there and smash something yourself. You'll be glad you did.

Thanks to LookyLoo, who reminded me Cinco de Mayo is tomorrow and I need to go get a pinata tonight.

    $800 for a LEGO set, 16 hours to build and they destroy it. What a waste.

    So, if you put together a Lego set, you must glue all of the pieces together, so that you can never take it apart again?

    Sure, there may be a piece or two that actually broke during this, but in the end they have close to what they started with. A box full of ideas.

    If I spent $800 for a freakin' LEGO set and took that long to put the thing together, the last thing I would do was shatter it. And no, I wouldn't glue it all together. That would be stupid.

    Too bad it wasn't on green screen. You can insert it onto a leg Death Star.

  • That was not a Star Destroyer. It was a super Star Destroyer,sorry Geek moment there.

    Worth it.

    That was kinda cool, but I wish they would have dropped it from a higher elevation.

    The one in the movie crashed to an $8000 Death Star II
