Monday, November 14th, 2011

From The Stark Insider (“All things West Coast”) comes news of a 12-foot tall, 10-foot wide Santa Yoda made out of LEGO bricks. It will go up in Union Square starting Friday, November 18th,* 2011.

Get the deets at LEGOSantaYoda.Com. (No, I’m not joking, I’m srsly.)

Click on me you will. Expanding I am.

All the deets:

“LEGO Master Builders Construct 12-foot Tall by 10-foot Wide Santa Yoda out of LEGO bricks

WHAT: Inspired by the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar, this three-day community build where families help LEGO Master Builders to create a 12-foot tall by 10-foot wide LEGO Star Wars™ Santa Yoda made entirely of LEGO bricks to kick-off a countdown to the holidays found at www.LEGOSantaYoda.com. Building event supports the local Bay Area Boys & Girls Club, and consumer engagement via the web site donates LEGO toys to the U.S. Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots program.

WHEN: Friday, November 18th to Sunday, November 20th 10am-6pm daily (or until completed)

WHERE: Union Square (next to the Holiday Ice Rink in Union Square), San Francisco”

(This would seem to be a more honest way of promoting LEGO than lying about a viral video ala the LEGO Indiana Jones game people.)

See you there!

*You know, it seems like Santa Yoda goes up earlier each year…
