Luke Skywalker was dedicated to getting his friends back at all costs. Star Wars fans share in that dedication when constructing their detailed reproductions of scenes from the series. Here, Anthony shows us an excellent slice of Jabba’s Palace from an iconic scene in the Return of the Jedi. The detailing captures the throne room well and I love the bottles with spilled liquid along the edges of the display. I also enjoy how Anthony decided to portray the scene. On top of the notable characters, the builder staged the display at a great scale and in a way that evokes some emotion. Having Luke’s back to the viewer helps us imagine that we are in Luke’s place, facing down a wretched scumlord holding our friends captive. Paired with the dramatic irony of knowing what’s in store for our hero, I think it helps add a feeling to the model that hits me right in the nostalgia.
Back in August, we shared a first look at the Luke Skywalker with Blue Milk minifigure that comes with the purchase of the LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Deluxe Edition game. While the game has been delayed to next spring, pre-orders are now available on Amazon US. Today we’re getting a closer look at the polybag packaging and artwork thanks to retailer gameresource.nl.
