LEGO Star Wars is one of the most popular LEGO themes of all time. Far beyond X-wings and TIE fighters, there’s a whole expanded universe of inspiration, and an army of LEGO fans ready to build whatever comes out of George Lucas’s head next.

Does this mech make my butt look big?

Intricate details are a hallmark of LEGO mech builds. This often leads to a feeling that the builds are super-huge in scale, even though they’re usually miracles of compact design. The MT3 Heavy Mech gives us a clue, though, with the quickly recognizable inclusion of a Star Wars 41st Elite Corps Trooper minifigure as the pilot. There are also hints if you happen to know how big those are.  Or maybe you spotted those minifigure hands for fingers.

From the rear, you can see more of the custom sticker work that set Marco’s builds apart from the crowd. There are also some alternate-brand part selections here and there. LEGO purists may complain about that, but you can’t argue that the results are really stunning.

This isn’t the first mech of Marco’s that we’ve spotlighted, and it’s unlikely to be the last. My hope is that others are inspired by these tiny(?) beauties, and we’ll see even more Mechs on the horizon.

Do what must be done

Any time I see LEGO creations relating to Order 66 from Revenge of the Sith, I feel the emotional tension rising. As painful as it is to see clones turn on their former Jedi comrades, you have to admit that builder does a painstakingly good job at depicting the ultimate betrayal.

From the clones’ march into the Jedi Temple on Coruscant to the younglings hiding in the background, this build perfectly captures the epic darkness of the moment。 The only word I have for the level of detail, especially in the Holocron bookcases and the statue work, is beautiful。

Oh, and did I mention that this build is literally lit?

What’s all the buzz about?

The Buzz Droid was first introduced in Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith as insidious saboteurs that could wreak havoc on unsuspecting starfighters. We’ve 盛通彩票登陆seen them before in LEGO but I don’t think anyone has done one with a UCS (Ultimate Collector Series) level of detail. Along comes Instagrammer and now we’ve seen everything. I particularly like that even with a monochrome color palette, this builder brings out each detail nicely. The domes are made from Death Star halves, which is rather fitting, actually.

Gamorrean smackdown – no place for a child.

First off to start, this LEGO vignette from the hit series The Mandalorian built by is a spoiler-free scene since it appeared in the promotional trailer for the second season. Unsurprisingly the show is continuing to crank out inspiration for LEGO builders and vignette creators.

A WWE or UFC inspired setting with two Gamorreans duking it out to presumably the death is shown both on the screen and in Kevin’s model. Long poles connected to 1×1 jumpers secure the ring, comprised of tiling and bricks laid on top of more tiling and plate pieces of varying shapes and sizes. Above the ring are some flags utilizing many different elements such as clip pieces, slopes, and tiles. Of course, this vignette is minifigure heavy. It showcases Kevin’s wonderful collection of Star Wars alien species minifigures, including the fighting Gamorreans, a Twi-lek, a Gran, a Mon Calamari, and an Ithorian, to name a few. As a whole, Kevin’s scene certainly captures this moment in the streaming series very well with its sense of crowdedness and recreation of event lighting.

Moon racers fight to the finish

Have you ever seen podracing in 1/6th of normal gravity? Thanks to builder , now you can! In real LEGO high definition!

With a silent roar, four engines take off through the Sea of Tranquility, blowing up dust clouds visible from Earth. What you can only see up close, however, is the excellent detail work on each podracer. For example, look at the way each Blacktron engine is a sandwich of filters and fins, expertly crafted using flat brick pieces. Also, check out the dirt being blown up behind each pod; it definitely gives you the idea that these pods are flying along the lunar surface!

The tiniest Bantha you ever did see

How many pieces does it take to build a great LEGO creation? Not a lot if you’ve got a great imagination and a little bit of skill. This tiny vignette by of a Bantha on the sands of Tatooine consists of only around 20 pieces, but it’s perfect. The brown minifigure hair forms the furry body of the poor Bantha tied up as bait, which is a scene that may look familiar to fans of The Mandalorian. The tauntaun horns stand-in for the pack animal’s giant curved horns and a black wand serves as the hitching post.

Home is where the portions are

While certainly not the most comfortable place to rest your head at night, A hollowed-out AT-AT did provide Rey with shelter and plenty of metal to scratch out the days, she spent on Jakku waiting for her family to return. In this LEGO diorama by , the fallen Imperial walker half-buried in the sand is captured in great detail for such a small scene. And if you look closely, you might spot a tiny Rey next to her iconic red speeder.

May the cookies be gingerbread, always.

Halloween has barely passed, but holiday themed everything has already arrived in the shops near me. Perhaps the season’s greetings has also prematurely arrived in other spheres as well, such as the LEGO blogosphere! render of a gingerbread LEGO Star Wars dogfight is case in point!

The X-wing starfighter pictured, much like last year’s is sweet, but instead of being candy inspired it is the X-wing imagined in the form of gingerbread. The color scheme consists of browns with whites, greys, and some splashes of gum drop and candy cane colors. The TIE fighter on the other hand is a strict snowflake icing and cookie design — no extra sweets for the dark side. Overall, this is a pretty sweet render, and it certainly makes me feel that holiday sense of cheer.

A look back at the moment that changed our lives.

New episodes of the Disney+ Star Wars streaming series The Mandalorian are finally here, but with this LEGO model and scene by , let’s go back down memory lane to the moment that changed the lives of Star Wars spectators everywhere.

The scene in which the Child, also known as “Baby Yoda”, was revealed was definitely a huge moment for the franchise。 Wesley recreates the scene by fashioning a a LEGO Mandalorian in the style of a buildable figure and an ingeniously minimal build of the Child in his pram。 The Child literally consists of a sand green and a sand green 。 A larger-scaled IG droid utilizing some bigger cylindrical elements is also seen collapsed in the background of this fully brick-built scene。 Wesley definitely captured this big moment in Star Wars history very well through the LEGO medium and excellent photography。

This is the way across the galaxy

As season 2 of The Mandalorian unfolds, we’ll likely see more and more custom LEGO creations of starships and characters of the show. An example of this is builder ‘s version of the Razor Crest.

Right away, I see how flambo14 changes things up from other versions of the Razor Crest by using the large cockpit piece. I like it so much that I’d like to see the real Razor Crest utilize that large of a viewport.

The engines are smoothly built, just like the actual model we see in the show. I admire how flambo14 made narrow connections between the engines and the wings. The stand keeps the Razor Crest on an angle, showcasing the exciting flights both towards and away from danger.

The question is, will the Mandalorian fly the Razor Crest to bring The Child to his species or find Jedi? We’ll have to watch to find out!
