From Ice Planet 2002 to the ice planet of Hoth

I’m absolutely loving the mashup of Star Wars and LEGO themes to fulfill one of the challenges in this year’s VignWeek by RebelLUG. And this scene by Jens Ådne J. Rydland utilizing a duo of 90’s space factions to highlight a pivotal scene from the Battle of Hoth. The pairing of Blacktron I and the Empire feels fitting, and justifies the outstanding insignia on the side of the walker. The AT-AT’s head is well made, looking like an all-black version of some Neo-Classic Space designs. But those legs, harkening back to 6876: Alienator, are the perfect retro touch! The tiny Ice Planet snowspeeder is adorable, and I hope Commander Cold is able to successfully stall the Imperials long enough for the Futuron transports to escape.

Picking up the pieces, Fabuland style

I’ve always had a fondness for a good fan-made redux of an old-school LEGO set, and this lovely overhaul of 3634 Charlie Crow’s Carry-All by Jens Ådne J. Rydland fits the bill perfectly. The classic Fabuland truck has been expanded drastically from its original 17-piece build, adding lots more detail like the wooden truck bed and more details on the undercarriage. The trash bin was in the original, but a lamppost and cobblestone street have been added to complete the diorama.
