This enormous cylinder made of LEGO may look like a Katamari wad that rolled through Hoth, Naboo and the Death Star, but it's actually a drum driving a synthesizer, player-piano style, that plays the main Star Wars theme.
As you can see, the middle section and its structures are what appear to be driving the keys, so it's not like the gungans and speeder bike troopers below and to the sides are the ones playing the notes. Still, it's a fantastic diorama.
Built in collaboration with "certified LEGO professional" Rene Hoffmeister, the barrel organ was showcased earlier this year in Europe. A video documenting its development hit the Internet on Thursday. The one above was released in February.
