According to Jacob (Maedhros1980), this ship is a Scouting and Surveillance ship for the Rebel Alliance in the Star Wars Universe, and that certainly explains the family resemblance to the ill-fated Tantive IV. But I’m not ashamed to admit that the reason I was drawn to it was its Ice-Planet-esque color-scheme.
LEGO Star Wars models on The Brothers Brick
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.

In case Star Wars — or barnyard animals — is more your thing than Evangelion, here’s a chicken chaser. Max Pointner takes his inspiration rather literally from the Imperial AT-ST’s nickname, with hilarious results. The minifig capes on the chicken’s head are a nice touch.
I spotted this a week ago, and failed to get a post published until now. I still think this creation by Nick V (brickthing) is worth sharing, though. I’ve been seeing a lot of Disney/Star Wars mashups, since the announcement that Disney was acquiring Lucasfilm, but this is the first I’ve seen in LEGO. Darth Continue reading →
Behold, the Kraken awakes! Iain Heath (Ochre Jelly) debuted his “KR-KN Destroyer Destroyer” at SEALUG’s LEGO display at Emerald City Comicon last month, and I’ve been waiting impatiently for him to get it online. The official LEGO Star Wars 10221 Super Star Destroyer set is, frankly, a bit dull, so Iain has jazzed it up Continue reading →
It is irrelevant who shot first. If it were Han, than Greedo should have had better reflexes. If it were Greedo, than he should have had better aim. So clearly Han was just better at scum and villainy. Oh yeah, Logan (CaptainInfinity) built a rockin’ DL-44 Blaster that Han would be proud of…and that Greedo Continue reading →

Due out this May, the set will include 1,558 pieces and retail for $200 here in the States. I’ve upload all the official photos to Flickr, and here’s the designer video as Continue reading →

Show highlights include new LEGO Lord of the Rings sets, the usual Star Wars assortment, and the first official Continue reading →
The Palpatine’s Shrink-O-Matic contest over at FBTB comes to a close at midnight PST tonight. One of my favourite entries that I have stumbled across is this Naboo Starfighter by Bartosz Sasiński (bartosza6m (War-C)). The construction of the cockpit is absolutely brilliant, and the sleek shaping is spot on. Plus the display stand really adds Continue reading →

One of Mike’s most ambitious LEGO projects was Continue reading →
