How many Lego bricks to build the Death Star?

Ebates have created an infographic which shows  just how many LEGO bricks it would take to build your favorite sci fi structures and vehicles to scale.

If there comes a point when you are not contented with the 1329 piece Millennium Falcon set, you're gonna need a massive 15 .5 million LEGO bricks to build a to scale version. And what if you want to build your own space shuttle? 20 million? 40 million? Try 58.3 million bricks!

The Ebates team were helped by LEGO expert  Matija Puzar who reminded them that there are plenty of full scale LEGO models already built-including a life size, fully working car. From this they were able to determine that a full scale flying Back to the Future 2 DeLorean would take 573,314 bricks to build and the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 would need a whopping 955,200 bricks.

You don't even want to know how many it would take to build the Death Star. (it's in the trillions)
