Star Wars fans take May 4 as their annual celebration of all things Force-related, and this year, LEGO decided to commemorate the occasion by breaking a world record.

LEGO Master Builders Chris and Dan Steininger came together with LEGO and Star Wars fans at an event in Melbourne, Australia, to build the world’s largest Millennium Falcon from LEGO bricks.

According to The Telegraph, it took the Steiningers (and a team of volunteers) two days and 250,000 bricks to build their 15-foot model. It probably won’t be able to do the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs, though.

No word yet on whether or not their build is a record-winner in galaxies far, far away.
