Star Wars action in the Senate ambush

No plan goes perfectly, especially if you were planning on ambushing several Galactic Republic senators. In this highly detailed build by Hypolite Bricks, you can see the bounty hunters swing into action as they pounce on the fleeing senators.

This isn’t the first time Hypolite Bricks has been featured on The Brothers Brick. His Star Wars creations, such as the Republic Gunship, are packed with excitement and life, placing you into the scene and watching it play out before your eyes. Here, the use of many textures on the tower make this seem like a scene taken right out of a Clone Wars episode. The clear bricks are put into great effect in making it seem like the bounty hunter and probe droids are flying. You can almost hear the jetpack roar and the speeder accelerate in its escape.

The battle of Hoth, from a certain point of view

Between the recent launch of the Disney+ streaming service, and the release of The Rise of Skywalker, there is no shortage of inspiration these days for Star Wars-inspired LEGO creations, and while many builders chose the most iconic scenes to re-create, some prefer to show a different side, like Hypolite Bricks. This scene from the trenches of Hoth is jam-packed with great details. The rebels have a nice E-web heavy repeater blaster, and I bet they are better shots than those Stormtroopers. But I think my favorite part is that hatch next to the turret, which gives the troopers a way to duck out of the cold for a round of hot cocoa.

Real rebels recycle and reuse

The grungy aesthetic of the Star Wars original trilogy showed a worn-down, lived-in universe where a scrappy Rebellion used whatever they could find to fight the mighty Empire. It’s clear that the iconic ships like the X-wings, Y-wings, and especially the Millennium Falcon are all hand-me-downs. But surely the Rebellion would have used whatever they could lay their hands on, even if it was 30-year-old tech like this Naboo Royal N-1 Starfighter. LEGO builder Hypolite Bricks has crafted this detailed diorama of the Rebel’s Yavin 4 base as they as they attempt to return the classic fighter to flying shape. Look closely at the ship, as it’s not merely the official set but an impressive custom model with lots of details, including missing panels.

The builder notes that they were inspired by the N-1’s appearance in the recent trailer for The Rise of Skywalker, where it appears fleetingly along with seemingly every other ship in the Star Wars canon.
