Watch Someone Build a 4,000-Piece Lego Death Star in Less Than 5 Minutes

If you’re like me and you have the desire to build a massive Lego project but lack the time, patience, and manual dexterity required, then you will appreciate this. YouTube user Bart van Dijk from the Netherlands created a mesmerizing stop-motion animation video of his assembly of the Death Star from Star Wars.

In less than five minutes (the video time, not the total build time by a long shot), van Dijk puts together all 4,016 of the Lego bricks and various other pieces to complete the Death Star. Not only does he assemble the Imperial spaceship, he also reenacts scenes from the movie, manipulating the figures to fall into the Death Star’s trash compactor, for example.

If the video inspires you to strike out on your own and you have the aforementioned time, patience, and dexterity, you can pick up a Death Star from the Lego store for $499.99. You’re on your own for the stop-motion animation skills though.
