LEGO Star Wars Cosplay – LEGO Boba Fett

photo 5 1 768x1024 LEGO Star Wars Cosplay   LEGO Boba FettHow 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

LEGO Star Wars – Darth Malgus Lands On Hoth

11985450615 b6f7b23c43 k 1024x681 LEGO Star Wars   Darth Malgus Lands On HothChristoffer 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.

81ZVakeTlYL. SL1500  1024x832 LEGO Star Wars X Wing Starfighter (9493) 17% OffIt’s possible that there are people out there who might like to build themselves a LEGO X-Wing Starfighter so they can pick it up and walk/run around the house flying it while making the sound of laser canons firing.

I’m not saying I am such a person… necessarily. Just that it is possible such people exist and I might be able to relate to them.

Anyway if you have a cough… child… cough who enjoys LEGO Star Wars then you might want to look at the X-Wing Starfighter set 9493. Which Amazon currently has at 17% off its regular price.

Not only do you get the cool X-Wing model but there’s a Luke minifigure, R2-D2, R5-D8 and most importantly of all Jek Porkins. Yes! Porkins!

The cockpit opens, the wings swivel to attack mode. It’s almost like they meant for me.. I mean someone… to run round the house with this.

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

7130 Snowspeeder 001 600x337 This LEGO Star Wars Snowspeeder Isnt ReallyThis 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.

Star Wars LEGO – Twin TIE Fighter Hangar Bays

TwinTIEHangarBays a03 018 600x450 Star Wars LEGO   Twin TIE Fighter Hangar BaysHow 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.

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.

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.



LEGO Set 75002 – AT-RT

AT RT 600x550 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 set I think and a steal at less than $20.

LEGO Star Wars: Clone Troopers vs. Droidekas

 1050869 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.
