Stunning 6 foot tall LEGO Scarif tower from Rogue One

The finale of Rogue One involved the heist of the Death Star plans from the vault in the Scarif Citadel Tower. The building is an impressive spire of Imperial tech — recreated here in LEGO bricks by Paul Trach. This huge model is no less than 1.8m tall, and took six months to complete. What could have been some big slabs of dark grey is enlivened by excellent texturing and details, and Paul has lavished as much attention on the base as the towering structure itself — the central circular plaza and its asymmetric bridges are beautifully done.

I like the way Paul has placed plenty of minifigures around the model, creating the impression of a bustling Imperial outpost. Do I spy a lonely Director Krennic all the way up at the top there? I think I do. And this view of a trooper squad shows the nice variety of figures employed, and gives a closer look at the excellent brickwork involved in creating Scarif’s signature tropical beaches…
