There are a few epic scenes in the Star Wars prequels, and Darth Vader’s transformation is certainly one of them. LEGO has featured it twice, firstly back in 2005 in set 7251, and then more recent 75183; the later was a huge step up in terms of parts and playability. Then there’s the fan-made version by Korean builder Korion which has 1900 parts and a model I’d classify as UCS (Ultimate Collectors Series). The amount of detailing is breath-taking and features a transformation chamber that Palpatine would approve of.

With the next installment of the Star Wars franchise nearing once again, we’re starting to see the amazing community of builders turning their incredible skills to a galaxy far, far away. These larger doll-sized builds by Herbert Lee from Hong Kong are a prime example. With a multitude of articulation points to give life-like poses from any iconic scene from the movies, these figures stand about 8-10″ tall and are a considerable step up from the LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz figures.
Herbert has built eight characters from across all three trilogies. Let’s take a look at each one of them in their best poses.
