LEGO Star Wars Cosplay — LEGO Boba Fett

How about that for a geek triumvirate headline? Yes this is a cosplay of the LEGO Star Wars minifigure of the galaxy's least competent bounty hunter Boba Fett as lovingly created by CGS1 for his son. Even I think it's really cool and I think Boba Fett is the third lamest character in Star Wars. It's probably the most convincing LEGO minifigure cosplay I've seen to date Source: TheDentedHelmet - LEGO Boba Fett Costume

LEGO Star Wars — Darth Malgus Lands On Hoth

Christoffer Östberg or East Mountain as he goes by on Flickr produces LEGO imagery that can only be described as beautiful. They're also wonderfully geeky and Star Wars related which is a bonus. It's the attention to detail which puts these photographs over the top though. Sure they're using some good LEGO Star Wars models, but look at this one for example. The carefully moody lighting with shadows cast. The snow falling. Christoffer has created a real atmosphere with the staging of this shot. Something that tells a story as well as showing off the LEGO models. Really lovely work and there's lots more of it. Source: Flickr - Hoth Darth …Read more  »

Gigantic LEGO Imperial Star Destroyer Is Bigger Than You Are

LEGO Star Wars is popular.of course and LEGO does sell an official Super Star Destroyer set. But that is a paltry thing compared to this beast of a model. The builder Jerac estimates that his LEGO Imperial Star Destroyer weighs around 110lbs, is over 6 and half feet in length and contains over 40,000 bricks. It is huge. And because of that it's also immensely detailed. In fact the build took Jerac about 6 months. But the result is phenomenal. Make sure to click through and check out all the detail images.

This LEGO Star Wars Snowspeeder Isn’t Really

This picture shows a lovely LEGO model of a Star Wars Snowspeeder in all it's glory and I think it passes first inspection pretty well. I mean there are even imperfections on the clear plastic windshield. But once you look at it more closely you realize there are no LEGO logos on the studs and then as you study something seems ever so slightly off. Because this is a purely digital construction. And it's an incredibly good one. Check out the post at Eurobricks to find out how this was built and what it's creator has in mind for improving on it. Source: Eurobricks

Star Wars LEGO — Twin TIE Fighter Hangar Bays

How about this for a cool LEGO Star Wars build? Not only are the two TIE Fighters themselves rather awesome to look at but the whole scene here works with assorted officers and troopers preparing the ships and the background just completely nails the Imperial look (1970s style!). Some really good building by AC Pin. Source: MOC Pages - Twin TIE Fighter Hangar Bays

LEGO Star Wars — Death Star Trench Run

This huge set piece LEGO build depicts the classic Star Wars scene of Luke flying down the Death Star trench to launch a missile with Darth Vader in his TIE Fighter right behind. [gallery type="rectangular" ids="108627,108628,108629"] The whole thing was built by Scott Vandeleest who had it on display at Brickworld recently. Man the fun I could have with that set. http://www.brickwars-sets.com/blog/?p=2309

LEGO Set 75002 — AT-RT

This is my son Jamie's latest set and his biggest to date since it had 222 small pieces. He put it together in less than an hour without even taking a break. Keep in mind he's 8. Of course the main feature of the set is the AT-RT (All Terrain Recon Transport) itself and as you may be able to tell it's part of the 501st Legion. The AT-RT is articlated so the legs can move and the gun turret swivels. Also included though are the Yoda mini-figure, a 501st Legion Clone trooper mini-figure (riding the AT-RT), a Commando Droid minifigure and a Droideka. All in all a pretty good …Read more  »

LEGO Star Wars: Clone Troopers vs. Droidekas

Jamie got a new LEGO Star Wars kit to build today.  We usually restrict him to the budget sets because... it's an expensive hobby at the rate he builds things. Clone Troopers vs. Droidekas is a pretty fun set because you get a couple of minifigures (Clone Commander and Clone Trooper) plus a couple of the Droidekas and then there's the command station. The end result then is a playable LEGO set, where sometimes you can't really do much once you've finished building. http://amzn.to/ZQqS32

LEGO Star Wars 9677 X- Wing Starfighter and Yavin 4

This is a cool little LEGO set. I emphasize little because you're getting a small model here. But I like these minimalist micro designs. My son (who is 8) was able to put this together on his own. It wasn't too fiddly and his smaller fingers probably helped. Also it didn't take so long he got fed up or frustrated. There's supposed to be an X-Wing pilot with it, but boys being boys, they've misplaced that so I took the photo without. You aslo get the planet Yavin 4 as the container for the whole thing which is a bit of a gimmick, but still. I see two markets for …Read more  »
