Have you ever wondered how many LEGO bricks it would take to build the Death Star? No, I’m not talking about a desk replica–I’m talking a life-sized version.

Apparently, 435 trillion LEGO bricks is the answer to that question. We’re going to take Ebates word for it—their infographic highlights exactly how many LEGO bricks it would take to build our favorite gizmos, ships and sci-fi wonders.

Check out the infographic below.

Ebates wrote the following about the infographic:

[LEGO Expert] Matija Puzar also alerted us to some real-life LEGO creations to help us with our equations. A man in Austin, Texas, actually built his own fully functional LEGO R2D2 using 16,000 bricks along with a steel frame and a motor from a remote control plane. Our master builder also pointed us in the direction of an actual, working car that was built entirely out of LEGO. Although he was quick to remind us that the plastic LEGO bricks wouldn’t “fancy the temperatures around the engine,” that didn’t deter us! Using the real LEGO car as a basis of comparison, we were able to determine that it would take 573,314 LEGO to build and travel through time with the flying Delorean from “Back to the Future Part 2” and 955,200 LEGO to build and bust ghosts in the Ghostbusters’ Ecto-1. Our master builder also had a friend who built a life-size Tardis from “Doctor Who” with 150,000 LEGO. But, of course, that number would go way up if you built the inside to scale as well. (There are more LEGO on the inside.)
