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.

Crafting the first experimental TIE Fighter

Every piece of tech in the Star Wars universe must have started with a plan and a team of engineers to realize the vision. Inthert shows this interesting idea for a vignette with a LEGO scene showing Sienar Fleet Systems engineers constructing the first TIE Fighter. Like on the builder’s previous sectioned X-Wing, rubber bands as exposed wires make the TIE look realistic.

More 2017 LEGO Star Wars Classic Trilogy sets revealed [News]

More high-quality 2017 LEGO news continues to emerge as we near the end of the year. Today’s reveals are all based on vehicles and events in the Classic Trilogy, and are expected to hit stores in January. While all of these are redesigns of previously released material, over this past year as I’ve gotten back into Star Wars LEGO, I’ve come to appreciate the significant improvements that LEGO designers have been making. And of course, each re-release or redesign gives a new generation of LEGO fans an opportunity to add a new vehicle to their collection.

The new 75175 A-Wing Starfighter appears not to be a mere recolor of the Rebels version of the A-wing in 75150 Vader’s TIE Advanced vs. A-wing Starfighter. It includes 358 pieces and three minifigs, including Lando Calrissian in his Rebel General outfit.

Battle on Rhen Var from Star Wars: Battlefront recreated with 250,000 LEGO bricks

The classic Star Wars video game Battlefront comes to life in this enormous diorama by Markus. Markus spent 10 months assembling 250,000 bricks and LEGO Star Wars minifigs into a diorama that measures 2.5 x 1.5 meters (8.2 x 5 feet). Unlike many of the all-white Hoth dioramas we’ve featured here over the years, the patchy snow results in a bit more texture against the underlying rock.
