Image(s) of the Day: Intimidating 25K-brick Lego Klingon Bird of Prey

The Klingon Bird of Prey is one of the most lethal predatory starfighters in the Star Trek galaxy, decloaking at will to instill fear into the hearts of Federation captains patrolling the far reaches of the cosmos. This intricate 28-inch-long, 16.5-inch-wide Lego replica was constructed by Lego master Kevin J. Walter, and took six years to refine and complete, using 25,000 carefully placed Danish bricks to conjure up a faithful version of the killer Klingon warship.  

Here's what the dedicated hobbyist had to say about his impressive creation:

The Klingon Bird of Prey is, since I can think of, my favorite Spaceship-design and as well the one, which inspired me the most in my childhood and all my own spaceship Models. After completing the BoP as virtual Model (2008-2010), it was always a dream of me to build it some time with real bricks. I'm really lucky the dream became true six years later!  Really just in time to celebrate and tribute with it the 50th anniversary of Star Trek this year as well as the 30th anniversary of "Star Trek IV - The Voyage Home" where the BoP is (at least for me) the big star on screen... aside with George and Gracie.
