Yesterday, the LEGO Group marked 20 years of LEGO Star Wars by achieving a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for largest display of LEGO Star Wars minifigures, kicking off a weekend-long experience at Star Wars Celebration.

Two decades worth of products, content and collaboration between two of the world’s most beloved brands will be showcased at booth #1616 at McCormick Place in downtown Chicago, giving fans of all ages the chance to relive their fandom and build excitement for what’s to come this Fall.

Made up of 36,440 LEGO Star Wars stormtrooper minfigures, the record-setting display is arranged in the shape of the iconic stormtrooper helmet, measuring 20 feet tall by 20 feet wide. A team of 12 LEGO builders spent 16 hours assembling all of the minifigures, which were then shipped to Chicago to be arranged for display at Star Wars Celebration. Once assembled, the baseplates were transported to McCormick Place, where they were arranged for final evaluation by GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS Adjudicator, Christina Flounders Conlon.

The collaboration between the companies began 20 years ago when 13 LEGO Star Wars™ sets were introduced at the American International Toy Fair in New York in 1999. The line of licensed construction toys was the LEGO Group’s first licensed property and has since remained one of the company’s most popular, allowing fans across generations and geographies to come together in fun and challenging building exercises.

The display, which is made up of 36,440†LEGO stormtrooper minifigures, broke the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title. (Alex Garcia/AP Images for The†LEGO†Group)†

Since the launch, over 700 different sets and more than 1,000 LEGO Star Wars cobranded minifigures have hit shelves. Notable LEGO Star Wars milestones include, the first modeled minifigure headpiece being introduced in 1999 with the Jar Jar Binks minifigure, while new short leg molds introduced in 2002 brought Ewoks and Yoda to life in minifigure form.

Beyond construction sets, the collaboration has also produced five video games, several television and web series, and an abundance of other merchandise based on the endless stories, characters and vehicles of the beloved galaxy.

Do These “Avengers: Endgame” Lego Sets Reveal Movie Spoilers?

Toys can often be the first spoiler of any movie, especially the Marvel and DC ones. Case in point, these LEGO sets were just uncovered online for “Avengers: Endgame”, and may – or may not – contain hints of what we may see in the upcoming MCU epic movie.

Check out the images of the sets below, with some theories afterwards:

New LEGO Marvel Avengers 76125 Iron Man Hall of Armor. It has 524 pieces for a price of $59.99

New LEGO Marvel Avengers 76131 Avengers Compound Battle. It has 699 pieces for a price of $ 99.99 usd.

76123 Captain America; Outriders attack. 167 pieces. $4.99 usd

6126 Avengers Quinjet has 832 pieces for a price of $ 79.99.

76124 War Machine Buster, has 362 pieces for a price of $ 34.99.

These products were discovered by Brick and Bricks.

What is definitely new is the addition of the Outriders, who are going to be Thanos’ minions, as well as Captain Marvel getting her own LEGO mini-figure. We are getting plenty of returning characters from the Avengers here, but many have new white outfits. Is everyone getting a brand new costume?

Does the Hall of Armor and Avengers HQ point to an invasion that may happen when Thanos returns to Earth to finish what he started? We know that Avengers HQ and Tony Stark’s home will be a part of the movie based on the last trailers, but this giant War Machine Buster is completely new!

The Quinjet and Captain America’s motorcycle are nice, but really – I just want to know everything about that giant War Machine! If any of this was actually in the movie, I genuinely hope that armor is a part of it.

Do you think these are just silly toys that were made up for fun, or will any of these sets be based on pivotal moments in the film? Leave your theories in the comments!
