Nothing screams Star Wars more than an epic space battle with some masterfully composed music by John Williams. Although The Last Jedi was not a perfect movie, it did provide some of this classic Star Wars goodness. This bomber by Mirko Soppelsa is an amazing rendition of one of the newest vehicles to take flight and its details are jaw dropping (or should I say bomb dropping?). Be sure to check out more photos while I geek out and hum Star Wars music.
An interesting model by Boba-1980, but one that is rather fun and creative. The builder recreated the Battle of Crait, something we have probably seen plenty of times by now (and it hasn't even been a year yet!), but Boba-1980 make it in microfighter form. A condensed command shuttle, a smaller version of the base's turrets, and even a tiny First Order battering ram. What does that all create when combined? A fun model that I'm sure many kids could enjoy playing with.
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?
I still haven't made up my mind about The Last Jedi, and I know I'm not alone. There's a lot of stuff I love about it, and a lot of stuff I hate about it. But you can't deny there's some stunning visuals in it, including the climactic battle on Crait, brilliantly recreated here by builder First Order Lego. My favorite detail has got to be the little crystal fox.
Porgs, they are primed and ready to be a love it/hate it aspect of Star Wars The Last Jedi. I for one think they are kinda cute, but am honestly a bit leery. But I swore to reserve judgement until I see the movie, and I will. Regardless if you love them or hate them, you gotta admit they're probably good eatin', at least ewoks think so (and so does Ochre Jelly).
Now that Nerdvember is behind us, and Christmas isn't quite here, we can get to the serious business...namely counting down to The Last Jedi. Powerpig is here to get us in the mood with another excellent Brick Sketch, this time it's everyone's favorite polished Stormtrooper, Captain Phasma. She's shiny.
