Boy breaks Guinness record with ‘Star Wars’ Lego set

(UPI) – A 12-year-old Lego enthusiast in Kentucky broke a Guinness World Record by building a Star Wars Millennium Falcon micro fighter kit in under two minutes.

Guinness said Haddon Haste, 12, of Louisville, assembled the Millennium Falcon micro fighter kit in one minute, 59.72 seconds, setting a record for the fastest time to build the model.

Matthew Haste, the boy’s father, said Haddon wanted to break a Guinness World Record while stuck at home amid the COVID-19 pandemic and found a record that combined his love of Lego building with his love of Star Wars.

“I am proud of my son for his hard work on this record attempt and I am grateful for your organisation for encouraging him to pursue something meaningful in the midst of an otherwise difficult year,” Matthew Haste told Guinness officials.
