The spice trade is dangerous business

From the Star Wars series The Book of Boba Fett, builder Ordo (Fabian B.) brings us a wonderful LEGO depiction of Fett and his Tusken Raider clan taking on the Pykes atop their repulsor train. There’s just some fantastic sculpting at the front of the train, using hinges and bars/clips to create the right domed shape for the nose. I also appreciate the texturing choices along the cylindrical engine, providing variety while at the same time focusing on clean lines. But what really takes the cake for me here is the speeder bike design! They look so lithe and agile, zooming across the Tatooine sands. And the clouds of dust they’re kicking up are ingeniously built!

Train Heist - The Book of Boba Fett

See you, space elephant

Ah, Banthas. Glorious space creatures. Portrayed by elephants during the filming of Star Wars (1977) they serve as mounts for the fearsome Tusken Raiders, natives of Tatooine. And now they are ridden by a certain helmeted fan-favourite character, minus the helmet (and the character that never was.) This small desert diorama by KevFett2011 (no relation) showcases a scene from the first episode of new Star Wars series The Book of Boba Fett.
