There are now LEGO lines in almost everything, from superheroes to animals to the President of the United States - but undoubtedly one of the most popular LEGO lines out there is LEGO Star Wars.

Star Wars was the first intellectual property that LEGO ever aquried, all the way back in 1999 to coincide with the release of The Phantom Menace (and arguably, the LEGO was to become more popular with Star Wars fans than the movie).

Star Wars LEGO has even been responsible for the second largest LEGO set ever released, the Ultimate Collector Series version of the Millennium Falcon contains an incredible 5195 pieces and is most intricate LEGO set in existence with the exception of the LEGO Taj Mahal.

Watch this speeded up video of the Ultimate Collector Series Millennium Falcon being made - it took a guy a whole 33 hours!

But if the Millennium Falcon is the most complex LEGO Star Wars creation ever, the Death Star II has got to be one of the most awesome!

In the original Star Wars trilogy, of course, it was the Death Star II that was closing in on the forest moon of Endor in the final stages of Return of the Jedi - and it was unfinished following the destruction of the first Death Star in A New Hope.

And this LEGO creation is hardly a small one, with 3,417 separate pieces, once you have put in the time to create this space station, you might even begin to understand why it took the Empire so long!

Check out the LEGO Death Star II being created in this time lapse video:
