The 20 ton space ship is just nu on display in Times Square in New York City, where it has been flown from Chechya, to be flown to Legoland in California for permanent display.
The purpose with the display in Times square is to promote the cartoon movie ”The Yoda Chronicles”, which is based on the LEGO Star Wars-figures.
