There’s a lot to unpack here with Tim Lydy’s first Star Wars build. It started simply enough, with a trench battle featuring the pretty spiffy Mimban Stormtroopers. But it grew in size, and then the Emperor was added, then with the addition of the aurebesh title (for the empire) it has taken on almost a propaganda type feel, and it’s pretty amazing. For a more in depth breakdown of the build, check out this post on EuroBricks.
There is so much in the Star Wars universe that we don't know. Battles, vehicles, characters, abilities, and weapons are just a few pieces of the unknown portion of the story. In this beautifully depicted model, Sanellukovic represented a crashed Lambda-class T-4a Imperial Shuttle that is being swallowed by the terrain of this forest moon (or planet). Even though the craft is partially destroyed, it's still recognizable as the iconic vessel used by many high-ranking members of the Galactic Empire. There are so many unanswered questions through this single photograph. What happened to the crew? Why did this ship crash? This is a Star Wars MOC that I'd like to see a short story written about in the future. Lucasfilm? Hello???
Never know what to do when you have a WIP (Work In Progress)? Why not be creative and display it somehow? That's what Inthert did with his latest project. He felt it was "a perfect opportunity to reveal the progress I've made on my TIE fighter." The use of the LEGO rubber bands to act as wires is always a great technique to see. I also really like all the ladders and platforms he has created for the hard-working Imperial forces. Looking forward to seeing this model zipping across the sky!
