This is one of those crazy things that I never thought I’d ever see. LEGO builders Rene Hoffmeister and Lorenz Lnggrtnr have built a detailed Star Wars circus organ that plays the Star Wars theme from the film. This was made as a promotion for the Germany re-release of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace‘s 3D.
We took the four most famous Star Wars worlds — Hoth, Tatooine, Endor and the Death Star — and built them on to the barrel, accordingly to the musical composition. When the organ is turned, the bricks touch little mechanical sensors — which strike the keys of a keyboard and play the Star Wars main theme.
It’s currently touring several LEGO events and will be permanently installed in LEGOLAND Germany later in 2012.
