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.
Umm, spoiler alert? Yeah, Snoke was wrapped in mystery until last December, now he's still mysterious, but decidedly unwrapped. After months and months of speculation from the fan community, the new ultimate baddie in the Star Wars universe was unceremoniously dispatched in The Last Jedi, as brilliantly recreated in Brickheadz form here by the great Ochre Jelly. So much for him huh?
BrickinNick celebrates both May the 4th AND the release of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2. Here we have a brick-built Grewbacca and Rocket Solo. It's a crossover that does not look strange in the slightest, actually. I think it works well, especially Grewbacca. I'm not sure why, but I also really like how the iconic weapons are designed. This is most certainly a crossover I'd watch in an instant.
How many of you have (non-LEGO) models of Han Solo's famous Corellian freighter? JK Brickworks created a monochrome model out of LEGO. It's bringing two awesome model styles into one! Though there may not be color, this ship is still instantly recognizable, including all its details and angles. Nicely crafted!
Yup, it's May the 4th, and Star Wars nerds the world over are celebrating. It makes my geek heart soar that we've all banded together to make this a thing. This isn't Hallmark selling cards, this isn't Walmart selling cheap hats and party blowers, it isn't even Lucasfilm and Disney cashing in. It's fans, like me, just saying "I love Star Wars" in as many ways as they possibly can. This cheese wedge mosaic by hilaryleung is clever and awesome.
