Clone troopers vs. battle droids in landscape-focused LEGO Star Wars build

Noah (h2brick) is back with another Star Wars build, this time focused on the planet of Utapau featured in Revenge of the Sith. The colors of the bricks are great and mesh well together, separating the different areas. The mini-story that’s playing out between the customer clone troopers and the battle droids is a fun touch; maybe we’ll see General Kenobi falling into the water soon. While I lot of LEGO creations are framed with tiles, Noah chose to have the water and rocks continue down and away from the build, keeping it more organic.

This time-lapse is a great look at how Noah’s build came together. If you’re interested in learning more about how to make your own LEGO creations (especially for landscaping), you need to watch this.

For the love of Star Wars: A focus on Douglas Khoo

You never know what you’re going to get when you ask the right questions. Recently, we had the chance to speak with Douglas Khoo about his work. Douglas is a talented builder who seldom showcases his builds online, but does what he does for the love of it. If the builder’s name rings a bell, that’s because he was part of the crew that was invited to create and build an exhibit for the UNESCO’s Piece of Peace exhibition that will travel the world.

Douglas created this magnificent collage of LEGO Star Wars ships with a silent tribute to the Dark Side. This montage only took Douglas about two hours to complete, and if you did not already notice, it’s inspired by a similar piece by artist Louis C. Hébert from the Bleublancrouge advertising agency from the Star Wars Identities Exhibition over at the Montreal Science Centre, back in 2012. The difference though is Douglas makes use of the negative space a lot more to give the Star Wars ships a showcase of their own and individuality. If you still don’t see Vader there, squint your eyes, take a step back and look again!

When asked about how big a fan he was, Douglas’s answer was – you’ve got to be kidding me. That’s when we were introduced to a showcase of his other masterpieces which all center around the beloved Star Wars theme. With each of these builds, Douglas adds his own twists of interpretation and re-imagination to the scene.
