• Giant 12-Foot-Tall LEGO Santa

      Brick by brick, visitors to San Francisco's Union Square are taking part in a fantastically geeky holiday treat: helping to build a 12-foot-tall, 10-foot-wide Santa Yoda.
      The event, which takes place this weekend, is part of a Lucasfilm and Lego promotion for the launch of www.legosantayoda.com, a Web site that will soon let you send Star Wars-themed holiday greeting cards. For each virtual greeting shared, Lego will donate one new Lego toy to the United States Marine Corps' Toys for Tots program, up to 1 million toys.

      The public is invited to come out and help build from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. PT, Saturday and Sunday. Be sure to get there this weekend, though, if you want to ogle Yoda. When the jolly Jedi is completed Sunday evening, he'll promptly be dismantled.

      A team of Lego Master Builders is on hand to help assemble the effigy of the Jedi master, which will eventually contain about 250,000 bricks.
