In the ramp up to Bricks Cascade builder dviddy decided a little mashup was in order. And what do you get when you combine something uniquely Portland and Star Wars? Well you get dark lord of the Sith Darth Vader wearing a kilt and playing a flaming bagpipe while riding a unicycle of course. What else?
Talk about a bad day, NS Brick Designs has created any rebel’s worst nightmare. Being confined in a corridor with Lord Vader himself is probably not the most pleasant feeling, especially when he is in a grumpy mood. Needless to say, these troops are in for a rough ride.
You've heard the rumors, and now we have photographic proof thanks to builder MinifigNick. Yoda said the dark side was "quicker, easier, more seductive", but he never mentioned anything about chocolate chips! We can't repel flavor of that magnitude!
It is May the Fourth, Star Wars day, and of course we're celebrating here at BrickNerd. And what better way than to showcase some brilliant Star Wars MOCs, like this absolutely fantastic Brickheadz rendition of Darth Vader himself by builder tankm. I don't know if I should fear him or hug him.
Our pals at the LEGO Car Blog accurately predicted my reaction to this outstanding rendition of Darth Vader's iconic ship from builder Jerac. There's so many cool details and accurate styling on it I don't know where to start, I'll just point enthusiastically at the screen and make "ohh ohh" sounds, ok? Fun Fact: While it's a romantic notion to think this was Darth Vader's ship because he's a super baddie and needed an equally badass ship, the design has a much more practical origin, namely to be able to tell who's who during the battle of Yavin.
Builder Miro78 is having way too much fun and kicking off this year right. For the past four days he has uploaded one of these brilliant midi scale Star Wars figures. Considering the absolute plethora of figures that have been produced he could conceivably be doing this for a VERY long time. I'm hoping to see these, and Miro of course, in person this afternoon at BricksLA.
