In less than a month, Legoland Malaysia Resort will be celebrating its second anniversary and launching the brand new LEGO® Star Wars™ Miniland Model Display as well.
The fully air-conditioned indoor attraction will be the first standalone complex of its kind in Asia where 2,000 LEGO models based on the popular film series have been recreated on a scale of 1:20 using more than 1.5 million bricks.
The themed attraction is housed in a uniquely shaped standalone octagon building and recreates seven of the most famous scenes from the beloved Star Wars™ films and animated series: Star Wars: The Clone Wars™.
Now, let me bring you walk through the Star Wars timeline featuring the planets Christophsis, Endor, Geonosis, Hoth, Kashyyyk, Mustafar, Naboo, and Tatooine while having a unique photo opportunity at the Hall of Fame starring main characters Chewbacca, C-3PO, Darth Maul, Darth Vader, Princess Leia, R2-D2, Yoda with the authentic Star Wars™ sounds, actions and lighting effects to create that realistic environment. Before that, you must experience the specially designed pre-screening area for a LEGO Star Wars™ movie inside the model display.
The LEGO models are presented on raised platforms and stand 85cm high. Not to forget that there will also be life-sized LEGO models that are built with more than 80,000 LEGO bricks such as C-3PO, Darth Vader and R2-D2
All the models for this project were built in various locations around the world including Malaysia, Germany and the Czech Republic. Psst, we heard there is also a retail store within the complex for guests.
According to Mark Germyn, the General Manager of LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort, the attraction cost more than RM6 million to build and is definitely the biggest development at the Park this year. As a catalyst project in Iskandar, the Resort aims to attract more international visits by adding a new element annually to ensure guests have exciting reasons to visit each year. For this upcoming month, there will be various LEGO Star Wars™ activities lined up to commemorate the anniversary celebrations during September.

As for Annual Pass holders, you guys will be able to enjoy a special preview periods from 1-5 Sept before the attraction opens to the public.
