Like father like son
Chris Steininger grew up watching his father, Dan ‘play’ with LEGO® when he was seven. Dan Steininger left his lucrative sales job and started working at a LEGO store. 20 years of building LEGO® bricks made Dan Steininger the most senior Master Builder and one of the only seven around the world with LEGO Group. Following in his father’s footsteps, Chris is also one of the seven around the world with LEGO Group, making the Steiningers, the only father-son Master Builder Team.
LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort collaborates with the father-son Master Builder duo to build the largest LEGO® Millennium Falcon Replica with the help from LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort guests. The Millennium Falcon – an iconic spaceship in the Star Wars movie series – took over 3 days, nearly 30 hours and more than 200,000 LEGO® bricks to build it. Measuring at 4.8m (16ft) long, 3.6m (12ft) wide, the LEGO® Millennium Falcon Replica with two TIE fighters will be on display for the whole month of May at LEGOLAND® LEGO® Star Wars Days.
“Working on the Millennium Falcon is always so much fun and it’s awesome to see how excited everyone is by it. It’s one of my favourites to work on, and this experience is made all the more significant because I get to share it with my Dad! It’s been an honour for my Dad and I to be able to share our love of LEGO and Star Wars with the LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort guests,” – Chris Steininger, Master Model Builder, The LEGO group.
