Imperials at the Lars Homestead

This Star Wars diorama by KW_Vauban features a wonderful Sentinel-class Imperial landing shuttle, which made its first on-screen appearance in Star Wars Rebels.  Cousin to the standard Lambda-class T-4 shuttle (the one seen in the Original Trilogy), the Sentinel shuttle is modified to act primarily as a troop transporter, hence the extra body space and different placement of the wings, seen accurately on this LEGO model.  To further complement this amazing LEGO shuttle, the builder decided to depict the Imperial forces arriving at the Lars' home, in search of our two favorite droids.  These may not be the droids you are looking for, but this is indeed the shuttle you're looking for.

Nathaniel Stoner

     My name is Nathaniel Stoner, and I am an very active LEGO builder.  I mostly build in the themes of castle and science-fiction, but I also dabble in other genres and create occasional random MOC's (My Own Creations). 

     When I was younger, I would get and build small LEGO sets for my birthday, but I was never really into them.  When they fell apart, I would become frustrated attempting to put them back together and would throw them in a box in my closet.  I couldn't stand them!

     Then, miraculously, I became addicted to the LEGO brick later in my teen years.  Ever since, I have continued to build up (pun intended) my collection of bricks and to expand my knowledge of techniques and building skills.  LEGO is truly more than a toy, its an art form and a way to express yourself.

     For the most part, I collect LEGO Star Wars (mainly the minifigs), which is probably my favorite LEGO theme.  I have a fairly decent collection, including some of the original 1999 sets, such as the Snowspeeder, X-Wing, and Naboo starfighter.  I also collected LEGO the Lord of the Rings when those sets first came out.  The minifigs are great, and the story remains one of my favorites ever. 

     My hope is to inspire other young (and perhaps even older) LEGO builders to unleash their inner creativity!  You can find me on my Flikr here

Binary Sunset

As I begin Star Wars day 2016, this was one of the first images I saw on Flickr. Builder cmaddison was going for a retro stylistic 70's graphic look but isn't sure he succeeded. I can tell you Chris, you totally did. It's got an excellent retro feel and I recognized it instantly. My first reaction was "ohh", then a smile, then John Williams music in my head.

Expanded Wretched Hive Of Scum And Villainy

Builder I Scream Clone is back and has expanded on this brilliant Mos Eisley Cantina MOC from last year and it's just as wretched. It's instantly recognizable as everyone's favorite desert planet (that is of course you're a fan of Jakku, and really, who's not?) and must look awesome side by side with the cantina section. Although, according to the description this is part of a 24 baseplate diorama, and I count six in this and six in the previous. Does that mean we've only seen half of it? If so I can't wait to see the rest (and eventually the whole thing assembled)!

Update: Ask and you shall receive. I Scream Clone just posted his whole section of the collaborative build. It's enormous and gorgeous. I really want to see this in person, especially when the entire collab build is assembled, it's going to be epic.
