It broke box office records, it had a bigger opening weekend than The Avengers and it landed director Colin Trevorrow a job on the new Star Wars trilogy, so chances are pretty good that you saw Jurassic World this summer. The long-awaited reboot/sequel to the Jurassic Park series was received moderately well by critics, but audiences ate it up.

There are times when you don’t know whether to applaud someone’s talent or tell them to get a life. One such instance comes to us via The Escapist and it involves a man from Poland who has built an amazing replica of an Imperial Star Destroyer out of more than 40,000 individual LEGO bricks.

We’ve included one picture of the model below but you really ought to check out Jerac’s full gallery to get a sense of how incredible this really is. More →
