Some people send Lego men spaceward on rockets, while others can only dream. Or build giant Lego barrel organs dedicated to Star Wars.
When it's rotated with a hand crank, the barrel's many trees, buildings, and other Lego structures trigger levers that strike keys on a keyboard. That, in turn, plays the series' main theme.
Constructed by pro Lego builders Rene Hoffmeister and Axel Al-Rubaie, the barrel highlights settings from the films -- the Death Star, Hoth, Tatooine, and Endor.
The organ has made the rounds of German theaters to promote related Lego kits in conjunction with the film's release.
It bears a QR code linked to www.starwars.lego.com so that moviegoers can order the kits that were used to build it.
Check out the close-up pics and video below, as well as this vid, which shows part of the assembly process.
If only the film itself was this cool.
