About this Article

In January, Legoland asked visitors which line of the toy building bricks they'd like to see get more space on display. "Star Wars" was the overwhelming winner, and now kids (and adults) can see the result of their votes at the new "Lego Star Wars Miniland." "I'm excited to see kids come in and get blown away," said master model builder Andrew Johnson.
